Langley university’s concerts delight in sounds of Christmas

TWU offers two holiday concerts with diverse appeal to audiences.

From traditional carols to smooth jazz sounds, Trinity Western University (TWU) is offering a spectrum of music at two upcoming concerts. The first is Christmas at the Chan and the second is Jazz Night.

Christmas at the Chan is an annual tradition having been set at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at UBC for more than 10 years. This year’s show, happening Sunday, follows the format of giving families classical choral music in the spirit of the holidays. It’s an afternoon of Bach, Handel, and other greats that kicks off at 2:30 p.m. Families will enjoy the fun rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas and a sing-along.

Jazz night is Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Building at TWU. Everyone is invited to enjoy an upbeat performance by the Jazz Combo and Vocal Jazz ensemble from TWU’s School of the Arts, Media + Culture.

The voice of Sarah Williams will accompany the contemporary and classic jazz standards while experienced musicians mentor younger music students in the Jazz Combo. Expect selections from Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Nina Simone and Bonobo.

The Vocal Jazz ensemble will light things up with Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, Dizzy Gillespie, and the Gershwins. Plus there are some Christmas surprises in the works.
