SATURDAY DECEMBER 4th (7:30 p.m.) & SUNDAY DECEMBER 5th (3:30 p.m.)
Celebrate HOPE is the first in our series of 3 concerts this season and is Linden Singers’ first live appearance in 2 years! Featuring the debut of our new director Edette Gagné and the WORLD PREMIERE of an Emily Carr adaptation by local composer Christine Donkin, the concert is sure to entertain and engage. The show embraces three sections: light, darkness and rising up out of the darkness for an uplifting finale. Poetry and spoken word will curate this celebration of hope.
Tickets are $20 each, although if you are a student or are unable to make the $20 please reach out to email@example.com and we will make special accommodations. Tickets are available online only, there will be no tickets available at the door. Masks & vaccine passports are mandatory, although please be advised that during the performance, as per ActSafe BC regulations, our Music Director will be unmasked. On the subject of COVID restrictions, each show is restricted to 50 audience members. Fortunately, we have 2 shows – a Saturday evening show and a Sunday matinee, both at the same location. If you cannot make either show, we encourage you to purchase a Digital Version ticket. It grants you access to our specially and professionally produced AV recording of the Saturday night show. The recording will be available in mid-December, allowing even out-of-town folks to enjoy the Linden Singers this holiday season, or any time thereafter. Because although Celebrate HOPE is set in December, it is not your typical Christmas concert and may be indulged in even after the holiday season is over. For, after all, hope springs eternal, and the enclosed themes of light and darkness transcend seasonality. They are applicable to us during all points of our lives, no matter the time of year.
Linden Singers of Victoria rehearses and performs on the traditional, ancestral territories of the Lekwungen peoples. We acknowledge that the land’s historical relationships with the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSANEC peoples have existed since time immemorial. We express our gratitude to these peoples and value the opportunity to meet, perform and record on this land.
