The Valley Voices choir is back for its annual holiday concert.

‘The sound of 40 voices is amazing’

The Valley Voices have been a mainstay of seasonal entertainment for the Columbia Valley, and this week they return to bring holiday cheer.

The Valley Voices have been a mainstay of seasonal entertainment for the Columbia Valley for a number of years, and this week they return to bring you and your family a little holiday cheer.

The Valley Voices will be performing at Christ Church Trinity, 110 7th Ave. Invermere, on December 9 and 10.

Tickets are $10, $5 for students, and are available at Essentials and 1 Hour Photo in Invermere, and Meet at Higher Ground in Radium.

Columbia Valley Arts Council president and member of the choir Chris Evans calls it a, “really positive community event.”

“I just think the sound of 40 voices is amazing—we’ve always had really positive feedback from the community,” Evans said.

“The community has seen us go through a lot of changes and improvements, and they say they just love the energy and enthusiasm of the choir.”

While the choir only does concerts twice a year, during winter and spring respectively, Evans says the choir has grown in popularity tremendously over the last 10 or so years.

The concerts on December 9 and 10 should run for approximately an hour and a half, and will feature holiday carols, solo performances and sing-alongs with the aid of the 40-voice-strong choir to help keep the audience engaged.

A choir from a local elementary school will also be performing during the show.

“It’s a real family event, and we really enjoy doing it,” Evans said. “It’s pretty informal, we don’t try and get too structured. I encourage everyone to come—it’s a fun concert that can really get people in the Christmas spirit, and we work very hard at getting the audience engaged. It’s a really neat way to spend an evening.”
