Langley Community Chorus offers a dreamy show

This will be the 23rd year that the Langley Community Chorus has provided audiences with a Christmas concert.

In fact the chorus provides two concerts in two different neighbourhoods to make it convenient for people to enjoy the performances.

Season of Dreams, taking place Nov. 29 and Dec. 7, features a program that runs from the sacred to the sentimental.

There’s the Latin performance of Gloria in D-major by Antonio Vivaldi. Other selections include Candle in the Night; Song for a Winter’s Night; December’s Keep; Breath of Heaven; Season of Dreams; plus several well known traditional carols. On the lighter side they will sing the popular I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.

The shows are at 3 p.m. The Nov. 29 show is at Willoughby Christian Reformed Church, 20525 72nd Ave. On Dec. 7 the show is at Sharon United Church, 21562 Old Yale Rd.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students. Kids 12 and younger are admitted free and tickets are available at the door starting 30 minutes before concert.

It’s official

Brad Dirks and the guys who have created a Van Morrison tribute band have a name.

After creating a naming contest that was spotlighted last Thursday in the Langley Advance, the Langley-based band will be called The Morrison Project.

“The name [that] won was The Morrison Project with 35 per cent of the votes, with Domino and Cyprus Avenue tied for second place, each with 22 per cent,” Dirks said.

The Morrison Project is made up of James Minchau, Trevor Saunders, Dirks, Mark Cole, Dave Cole and Randy Morrison.

They used an online survey that allowed the public to have a say of several choices.

Now that they have a name, they can develop their website,, have their Facebook page, and are already booking shows and events.

“We’re looking forward to getting out there and doing some shows,” he said.

What a waste

Join the Green Wednesday crew on Dec. 3 to watch the newly released award-winning documentary Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story.

Just Eat It has premiered and won awards across Canada, the USA and Europe. 

“We are thrilled that local filmmakers Grant Baldwin and Jenny Rustemeyer will be joining us as our guest speakers,” added organizer Betty Cunnin.

Green Wednesday is the monthly environmental gathering and features international documentaries throughout the year.

The event is at the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Langley campus, room 1030.

Pay parking in effect and people are asked to bring their own mugs for coffee and/or tea.

Seating is limited so an RSVP is recommended to or 604-599-3348

Go west, young man

West Side Story is all about dance (and romance) but the production being staged Nov. 28 and 29 by Karen Flamenco and Troy Mclaughlin Tap Collective puts a whole new spin on this musical.

The feuding gangs use tap and flamenco to create West Side Story as never seen before and Langley’s Patrick Arnott is one of the dancers, adding another credit to a long list of accomplishments.

Arnott graduated from Langley Fine Arts School, got the lion’s share of his dance training at Langley Young at Arts and recently graduated from Harbour Dance Centers Intensive Training Program.

He is now with the Source Dance Company and determined to become a professional dancer.

West Side Story is performed at the Vancouver Playhouse at 7 p.m.

A fun night out

Langley firefighter Ron Dunkley spent his days helping others. After his death, his family decided that the best way to honour his memory was to continue helping others, and created the Ron Dunkley Memorial Society.

So far the society has helped with blood drives (another blood donor clinic is coming up Dec. 7) and is now hosting its first fundraiser, a pub night Nov. 29.

Let’s Raise the Roof is a fundraiser for the Burn Fund Building and takes place at Langley Twin Rinks Grillhouse starting at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $25 per person. For tickets call Sandy Dunkley at 604-532-0616 or email Tickets are also available at Pastimes Sports & Games.
