Nove Voce, which was recently been selected to compete in the Grand Prix of Nations at the European Choir Games in Gothenberg, Sweden next year, is back with their most popular Christmas concert How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Richard Bjarnason will be joining Nove Voce to read the original story as the choir performs songs from the cartoon and movie. There are also some wonderfully, awful Grinchy costumes made by Pat Jorgensen, great music based on the Dr. Seuss cartoon and even the group’s own dog Max.
Come on out and enjoy your favorite Grinch Songs like You’re a Mean One Mister Grinch, Where are you Christmas and Welcome Christmas.
The show is 30 minutes long, so it is perfect for audiences of all ages.
Due to the demand last year Nove Voce will be offering six opportunities to see the Grinch. There will be five show times on Dec.1, 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m.. All shows Dec.1 are upstairs at the Prince George Civic Center in Room 208. All tickets are $5 at the door, cash only, arrive early to avoid disappointment.
The new opportunity to see the Grinch is for the older Who’s in the Christmas concert Trim up the Tree. Dec. 8, 7 p.m. at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. The first half of the concert will feature new Christmas classics like White Winter Hymnal and Solstice Song alongside Christmas favourites like Little Drummer Boy and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
There will be a very special guest for the first half – Cantore Alegre – Prince George’s newest ensemble directed by Noves Voce’s own Kathy Pereira. The second half will feature a full Grinch reading. Tickets for Trim up the Tree are on sale at Books and Company. $20 for adults, $10 for children under 12.
This promises to be a delightful Christmas activity for Who’s young and old.
