Join local musicians and singers for a family-friendly festive musical journey this Thursday, December 22 – and get the chance to sing with them.

Fernie Chamber Orchestra and Fernie Community Choir take to the stage at the Arts Station on Thursday at 5:30 pm for a concert of Christmas music and carols.

The orchestra, which is made up of eight local musicians and is led by flautist Yolaine Hames, will play a medley of Christmas modern classics and traditional carols The Holly and the Ivy and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.

Members of the orchestra will also play Boccherini’s Minuet and Trio and Corelli’s Christmas Concerto for two violins and cello.

The choir, which is conducted by Sonia Roy, will sing a number of Christmas songs including the Carol of the Bells.

There will also be a chance for everyone in the audience to get in the Christmas mood by joining in with the musicians for a number of carols.

The concert is suitable for all ages and will last around one to one-and-a-half hours.

Entry is free but donations may be made to the Salvation Army food bank.

The concert is part of The Arts Station’s ‘What the Dickens’ season which will also include the Yayfal Sisters Children’s Theatre’s production of Especially Around Christmas at 3pm and 4:30pm on Friday, December 23. Tickets $5/person are available at The Arts Station

The events end on Saturday with a free Jingle Jams performance with Mike and Anie Hepher at Ghostrider Trading Building from 12:30pm to 2:30pm.
