"Usually, we can turn to our choir rehearsals for an escape from the stresses of the world, to recharge and reinvigorate ourselves, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, that weekly self-care opportunity was taken from us. It has been such a boon to all of us to be able to get back to singing together again, and the return of the Choral Rhapsody performance marks a wonderful milestone in getting some normalcy back into our lives,” said Ryan Noakes, Cantabile Singers of Kamloops’ Music Director. “Choral Rhapsody has always been a fantastic event for everyone in Kamloops singing in a choir. It's a perfect opportunity for us to share the music we've been working on with each other, as well as the community at large."
Seven local choirs and one out-of-town choir will be presenting a delightful selection of Christmas carols with singalongs between sets for audience participation. The choirs in attendance will be:
- Ashcroft Sage Sound Singers
- Cantabile Singers
- Desert Sounds A Cappella +
- Kamloops Choristers
- Kamloops Men’s Chorus
- Kamloops Pride Choir
- Valley Harmony
In addition to the choirs, handbell choir Bells of Note will welcome the audience with a selection of music in the lobby prior to start of the concert.
