The group will be front and centre at the Duncan United Church, at the corner of Ingram and Jubilee, on Saturday, Nov. 28 for an evening show starting at 7:30 p.m.

But, the hills will be alive with the sound of music, too, as a second performance is scheduled for 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 29 at beautiful little St. Christopher’s and St. Aidan’s Church at 70 West Cowichan Ave. in Lake Cowichan.

The event will also feature guest accompanist Michael Gaudet and several local guest singers, including a presentation from the South Island Musical Theatre Society’s upcoming musical, Anne of Green Gables.

Tickets are $17 in advance from choir members or from Volume One Bookstore (Duncan show) or Lakeside Medical (Lake Cowichan show) or you can pay $20 at the door.

Children 12 and under are admitted free.
