The Summerland Children’s Choir invites you to The Polar Express Sing-Along Movie Night on Friday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m.

The Polar Express is the story of a young boy on Christmas Eve who boards on a powerful magical train that’s headed to the North Pole and Santa Claus’s home.

During this extraordinary train ride to the North Pole he embarks on a journey of self-discovery which shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.

You are welcome to come and watch the movie in your pyjamas, enjoy hot chocolate and popcorn and sing to the projected words as if you were really in the musical yourself!  Although you will actually be sitting in the comfortable seats of Summerland United Church on Henry Avenue. All ages are coming. Entry is by donation.

On Saturday evening the Okanagan Symphony, the third largest professional symphony orchestra in British Columbia who have entertained residents of the Okanagan Valley and visitors from around the globe with symphonic music since 1960, will be performing at the Cleland Theatre in Penticton.

Saturday’s performance will shine the spotlight on the OSO brass section by featuring their Fish on Five Brass Quintet. These players, who recently performed with Musaic Vocal Ensemble, take their name from their annual fishing trip where they fish and play along B.C.’s coast.

Local star soprano Dawn Mussellam and Audrey Tannant, OSO principal trumpet will join them in selections of Bach, Handel and Verdi, all chosen to enhance the warmth of the Christmas spirit.

Bring the whole family for this festive show of seasonal favourites at the Cleland Community Theatre Saturday, Dec. 20 at 7:30 p.m.   For ticket information call 250-276-2170.
