Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra - Nov. 28 - Nanaimo

Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra

November 28th, 7:30 pm at Brechin United Church
December 6th, 2:30 pm at St. Edmund’s Anglican Church – Parksville

The NCO is now preparing for the Christmas season with a variety of Early Music, including early Christmas carols plus a chance to sing along with the orchestra.  Here is an opportunity to feel the non-commercial spirit of Christmas as the Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra plays through a trajectory of time, beginning in the 18th century and leading to the present.

The NCO will play 3 Baroque Christmas Concertos - by Torelli, Manfredini and Corelli, plus a wonderful rendition of Alessandro Scarlatti's Christmas Cantata, featuring soprano, Skye Donald. The program will include also, "The Shepherd's Farewell", from Berlioz' L'Enfance du Christ, a Christmas Medley of 5 ancient carols, and a Sing-a-long of a few familiar carols - guaranteed to send you home humming and anticipating Christmas in all its dimensions.   

Skye Donald, a long-time resident of Errington, is a popular soloist in the mid-Island region, especially in the operatic genre.  She recently performed a solo concert, "Arie Antiche", a program of Early Music - arias and art songs.

Tickets are $20 ($5, students, under 12, free) at the Port Theatre Box Office or at the door.  For more information, see
