Cowichan Valley Events

Saturday, December 20, 2014 – 4th Annual Winter Solstice Concert – 1:30pm or 7:30pm at the Duncan Christian Reform Church in Duncan, BC – a 40-minute trip from Nanaimo, BC

Presented by the Lila Music Centre, the fourth annual Winter Solstice Concert is a rising Cowichan Valley tradition. This year, it brings some new songs, a larger venue, amazing musicians, and two incredible performances to the stage.

Nationally acclaimed Canadian artists Richard Moody (violin), Corbin Keep (cello), and Adrian Dolan (multi-instrumentalist) are going to join Alex Remple (bass), Marilyn Rummel (Harp), vocalists Cari Burdett and Sara Marreiros, dance artist Marisa Jackson, and dance artist Hilary Fooelse (who is new to this year’s show), for two energetic performances on one day only. As a treat, vocalists Burdett and Marrieros will collect holiday wishes from the audience and spin them into an off-the-cuff song.

This year’s event is also including some charity; a portion of the event proceeds is being donated to the Cowichan Valley Hospice Society and their exceptional cause. Find out more about Hospice at http://www.cowichanvalleyhospice.org/. Therefore, tickets will be sold as a sliding scale fundraiser this year. They are available at Ten Old Books, Lila Music Centre, and online.

Bringing forward the spirit of cabaret and combining it with music from around the world, a thread of theatre and dance, and a dash of improvisation; this show is sure to please!
