For the first time, the Oliver Handbell Ringers and the Musaic Vocal Ensemble will join to present a spring concert to celebrate the joy of music and the beauty of song.
The concert happens May 4 in the Oliver Alliance Church. Audiences will recognize both local groups for their history in local communities of high quality, enjoyable and uplifting music.
Oliver Handbell’s director Helen Wollf and Musaic director Frances Chiasson expressed their excitement at having the two groups work together, stating, “We are so looking forward to sharing this unique evening of music with the communities of Oliver and Osoyoos.”
The program, which begins at 7:30 p.m., will include some selections played by the handbells, some sung by the Musaic singers on their own and several pieces for handbells and voices together. The music ranges from international folk songs, French Canadian, Tanzanian, Irish and Scottish to contemporary Canadian works, secular and sacred, traditional to modern. From gentle and profound to fun and joyful, the brilliance and clarity of the bells and the depth and colour of almost forty voices will entertain, enchant and inspire you.
There is only one performance, so if you are interested, make sure you mark down May 4 on your calendar. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets are available from the Oliver Remedy’s Pharmacy, and Oliver Shoes and Fashion, as well as at the door.
