Mary Winspear Centre, 2243 Beacon Ave, Sidney, BC V8L 1W9
A Seasonal celebration of a cappella, four-part harmony, featuring the South Island’s leading exponents of the art, South Island Harmony male chorus and the area's popular quartet, Trounce Alley. Audiences will be treated to that full-body tingle that derives from the blend of soaring voices, ringing chords, and thrilling close harmony. South Island Harmony’s first full Christmas Show in three years, the programme will feature brand new repertoire and some old favourites covering Seasonal songs and popular music genres from many decades. This is also the first full-repertoire show under the leadership of our outstanding new Director, Dr. Kinza Tyrrell. Kinza is a classically trained Music PhD with a phenomenal résumé of participation in international opera programmes. The mighty Trounce Alley Quartet entertains audiences all over the South Island with a diverse repertoire, singing everything from old Barbershop classics to modern movie theme songs. We are honored to welcome to our stage guest artists Lady & the Tramps, a mixed quartet from Nanaimo, and UVic Brass, a wind instrument ensemble comprising students from University of Victoria’s Music Programme. South Island Harmony takes pride in serving, and making a positive contribution to, our community. One of our missions is to form strong partnerships with school choral groups, music educators, and their organizations.
