Orchestra offers program of Winter’s Eve music

The Cowichan Camerata String Orchestra, under the direction of Garth Williams, will perform a concert they are calling Music for a Winter’s Eve on Saturday, Dec. 13 starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Duncan United Church.

According to the group’s Woody Reimer, "the program includes baroque classics of Handel and Bach and a variety of Christmas carols, including some sing-alongs for audience participation."

The strings will also accompany the special guests from the Encore! Women’s Choir singing carols by acclaimed contemporary composer John Rutter. There will even be an opportunity to meet with the musicians after the concert while enjoying some seasonal treats available for a small donation.

Tickets are $25 for a family, $10 for adults and $5 for children. Get them from orchestra members or at the door.
