The event will also feature guest accompanist Michael Gaudet and several local guest singers, including a presentation from the South Island Musical Theatre Society’s upcoming musical, Anne of Green Gables.

Tickets are $17 in advance from choir members or from Volume One Bookstore (Duncan show) or Lakeside Medical (Lake Cowichan show) or you can pay $20 at the door. Children 12 and under are admitted free.
