2:00 doors at 1:30
Presented by: Cari Burdett, Sara Marreiros, Oak Bay United Church
The Winter Solstice Concert will return for the 7th year, featuring Cari Burdett and Sara Marreiros (event coordinators) Marisa Jackson, Adrian Dolan, and Adam Dobres, as well as new additions, violinist Quin Etheridge-Pedden, and singer Nick Mintenko.

The multi-genre concert will fuse a 12th Century secular canon, a popular French Canadian fiddle tune, a Portuguese duet, folk songs, gospel, and pop classics by ‘Sting.’ Burdett has also invited the Lila Community Choir to perform some of these beautiful folk arrangements and bring in a wealth of vocal harmony to the performances. Created for the delight of all ages, Solstice delights regulars and newcomers alike and sells out each year to much acclaim.

Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door.

Donations will be gratefully accepted for the Witness Project. Created to build understanding of the severity and reality of the genocide in Canada, it physically weaves together many residential school stories to help represent the pain of the past and hope for the future.!/project/
