Festive folk had a treat Thursday night when they joined local musicians and singers for a festive sing along.

Fernie Chamber Orchestra and Fernie Community Choir took to the stage at the Arts Station 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, played a medley of Christmas modern classics and traditional carols, The Holly and the Ivy and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, to an audience of 76.

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

The choir, conducted by Sonia Roy, sang a number of Christmas songs including the Carol of the Bells.

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

Entry was by donation and raised $280 for the Salvation Army food bank.
