Showers of song in forecast at Brenda’s Brats light hearted show

The cheerful Mill Bay-based choir is ready for a month ending show

Brenda’s Brats are back at the Pioneer Square Mall in Mill Bay for their annual spring shows on Saturday, April 29.

At 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. you can enjoy a variety of songs from this talented group, which is directed by Brenda Braaten, and accompanied by Catharina DeBeer.

They’ve also invited Bryon Thompson to join the fun as guest performer this time.

Their press release, entitled, Brenda’s Brats Weather Notes, takes on the recent weather as the singers prepare some choral climatology called “Cloudy with Scattered Song”.

“The special guests are Mill Bay’s very own meteorologist, Ray Ban (Bryon Thompson) and newly minted weather girl Amy Freeze (Elissa Barron) who will be broadcasting live weather alerts from Pioneer Square Mall Theatre. The forecast calls for periods of fun with gusts of laughter as they perform their atmospheric renditions about all kinds of weather. Join them and listen to some meteorological music. No rain checks,” the group says.

Brenda’s Brats are a Mill Bay-based adult community choir under the direction of Brenda Braaten. Their concerts offer a mix of contemporary and traditional choral pieces, small ensemble and solo performances featuring their talented members.

The choir’s mandate is to help interested youth become involved in music in the Cowichan Valley. One of last year’s bursary winners Tavion Martin Caldwell will be performing in the concerts.
