VIDEO: Tunes, traditions of Christmas as Ken Lavigne celebrates at home this year

The Cowichan Valley’s favourite tenor chimes in with a great holiday show Dec. 3

Ken Lavigne’s show, HOME! for Christmas is all about homespun Christmas traditions, drawn from both the season and its music.

Join the Cowichan Valley’s own favourite tenor, Ken Lavigne, plus the Vancouver Island Symphony, and special guest, Nadya Blanchette, as they help unwrap the holiday season with a special performance Monday, Dec. 3 at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre starting at 7:30 p.m.

Let the rich timbre of Lavigne’s voice melt away the icy winter blast and envelop you with the promise of a cozy Christmas in what is sure to be a special event on your holiday calendar.

Soprano, Nadya Blanchette, will bring a whole new layer of warmth to the night with her sparkling voice and dynamic presence. And when the duo is backed by the Vancouver Island Symphony? Well, that’s just an extra layer of icing on the Christmas cake.

The evening will feature seasonal traditions, including stories, told with humour and love. There will be memories of Christmases past and the music that shapes and surrounds this most special time.

Music lovers will enjoy hearing such numbers as ‘White Christmas’, ‘O Holy Night’, ‘Angels We Have Heard on High’, ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas’, ‘Sleigh Ride’ and many more pieces that will bring the holiday spirit to life.

Organizers promise lots of seasonal joy. And, there will be audience participation: carol sing-alongs plus a Christmas tradition on Vancouver island: the annual indoor snowball fight extravaganza.

Whoosh! Time to zip out and get those tickets now.
