Voices of Tradition - Christmas Concert at Uplands

2008-11-26, from Member
SHERBROOKE – The Uplands Musical Society will present their annual Christmas concerts on Friday, December 19 and again on Saturday, December 20, at 8 pm at the Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre located at 9 Speid Street in the Lennoxville borough of Sherbrooke.

This event brings together talented musicians for a memorable evening of music, readings, songs and Christmas carols, presented free of charge in the intimate atmosphere of Uplands. Because the concerts have become so popularized, the room has been filled to capacity for both performances in prior years, so early reservations are highly recommended.

The programme includes a selection of songs from different countries, Albert Bert carols, Christmas readings that call for a laugh, and of course classic sing-along carols! Established as an annual tradition now, The Society will be sure to perform “The Twelve Days of Christmas”. The concert will be followed by light refreshments and Dinah’s famous hot mulled wine, another Uplands Christmas tradition.

The musical group, guided by the incomparable choir director, Cheryl Stroud, and accompanied by Daniella Bernstein on piano, is drawn from within our local community of professional and amateur musicians and singers. This year the group includes: Fraser Adams, Jean-Sébastien Baril, Joy Chandler, Jamie Crooks, Tim Doherty, Pamela Gill-Eby, Richard Fournier, Sarah Heath, Daniel Miller, Diane Prah and Chantal Tourigny. The readings will be presented by David Dutton in English and Jean-Sébastien Baril in French.

Uplands, the belle of yesteryear in all her splendid Christmas finery, is delighted to welcome you to a musical evening, where you will be uplifted by the rich sounds of the Uplands Musical Society. This event is free, but the number of places is limited, so reserve early! For more information or to make a reservation, please call 819-564-0409.
