Event DescriptionThe Peninsula Singers Christmas show is an enduring holiday tradition for families and friends of all ages. This year’s production, Christmas Magic, is a celebration of the season’s spirit with music, dancing, soloists, costumes, lights, humour and an appearance by Santa himself! Artist Director Lena Palermo has selected Christmas medleys combining contemporary, classical, jazz, gospel and traditional music. You’ll enjoy movie music like ’Sparklejollytwinklejinglely’ from Elf, sing along to ‘Be Boppin’ Santa Claus’, ‘Christmas in a Minute’, ‘The Nutcracker March’, ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’, variations of ‘Jingle Bells’ and many many more. The men of the Singers pay tribute to rock and roll with,’An Elvis Christmas’ that will leave you chuckling, while the women will warm your heart with,’ Sleep in Heavenly Peace’. The Spotlight on a Young Artist will feature Jordan Shillingford, who played Sophie in the Peninsula Players’ Mamma Mia. The dance group STAGES returns this year with dance performances to familiar holiday favourites, all masterfully choreographed by Kim Breiland. The show’s enthusiastic and professional instrument ensemble add rich harmonies and rhythms to the chorus with accompanist, Janet Yonge; percussionist, Terry Erskine; and violinist Margaret Dzbik. All of this music magic comes together with narration and humour by the engaging Master of Ceremonies, Jim Kingham. It is a family show you will not want to miss.
