The Lyric Theatre Singers Present Holiday Music Concert – Candlelight Christmas 2019: December 5 to 8, 2019

The Lyric Theatre Singers return to Loyola Chapel (7141, Sherbrooke Street West), for the latest edition of their must-hear holiday event, CANDLELIGHT CHRISTMAS 2019. Tickets are now on sale for 4 performances from December 5th to 8th, 2019.

Musical
Director, Bob Bachelor, has selected an array of songs to represent
numerous aspects of what the festive season means to one and all. Audiences can
expect an eclectic repertoire that includes Jazz, Classical, Pop, and
Broadway-style interpretations of holiday music from various parts of the world
… in four different languages!

“Our annual concerts
are the perfect vehicle for sharing the holiday spirit; a celebration of
great seasonal music, accessible—and enjoyable—to all, regardless of age or
beliefs. From ballads to standards, wonderful new arrangements with
contemporary twists and traditional favourites, the 40-strong Singers deliver a
diverse program that touches hearts and has everyone smiling. The fact that we
have actual candlelight to enhance both the beauty of Loyola Chapel and our
singing is always a plus. The moment when we ask the audience to light their
candles as we sing, never fails to move both Singers and patrons alike. It’s
truly magical!’’

– Bob Bachelor, Lyric
Theatre Singers Founder & Artistic Director

A
new addition to Lyric’s artistic team is long-time Singer and music librarian, Martin
Kaller
,whohas taken on the role of Assistant Musical
Director
. His collaboration with Bob Bachelor and his increased involvement
in the rehearsals and selection of music has enriched the concert preparation
process. Lyric is especially gratified with this development as it demonstrates
that not only does the non-profit organization offer musical betterment and
performance opportunities to the Montreal community at large, but it also
encourages and fosters the training and expanded involvement of its members in
both artistic as well as administrative and leadership capacities, useful
transferable life tools.

The intimate, candlelit ambiance is complemented by the lighting design of Amber Hood (Stratford Festival). Lyric’s Christmas concerts always include some of Montreal’s most gifted instrumentalists and this year is no different with Sheila Hannigan on cello, Tim Malloch on flute, Robin Best playing theharp, and Peter Colantonio on both percussion and keyboards. Pianist Chad Linsley completes the quintet for an enchanting Candlelight Christmas experience.

Donations of non-perishable goods and/or money for THE/LE DÉPÔT will be gratefully accepted at all four performances.
