The Sooke Community Choir invites you to our Winter Concert, “Songs For a Winter’s Night.” Experience a stunning collection of music and poetry that weave a tapestry of spirit, reflection and peace. Cozy up for songs like “Under Winter Moon” and “Rain, Rain, Beautiful Rain” more typical for a Sooke December! Enjoy our title piece, “Song For a Winter’s Night,” by Gordon Lightfoot which he describes as being about “snow and winter and romance thereof.” This piece is arranged for four part harmony and electric guitar by Bruce Ruddell.[sam id=”15″ codes=”true”]We welcome our special guest, Trevor MacHattie, principal cellist with the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra and introduce one of our own, Dave Cunningham, on guitar.
