Seasonal singing funds Christmas Bureau

The First Capital Chorus annual Christmas concert in support of the Langley Christmas Bureau is a hot ticket – for the performers.

Acts want to take part in the concert this Saturday.

“They’re asking us now,” said Gord Harris, one of the organizers. “There’s a line up of people who want to do this.”

Joining the First Capital Chorus and its quartets for this fundraising show will be the Langley Children’s Choir, the Opus One Women’s Choir, the Langley Concert Band, the 2014 Christmas Community Chorus, and the Peace Arch Sweet Adelines.

The concert is Dec. 13, at 7 p.m. in Langley’s Willoughby Christian Reformed Church, 20525 72nd Ave.

The audience will have a chance to add to the musical evening.

“There will be a sing-a-long,” Harris said. “You’ve gotta have that.”

The First Capital Chorus has been performing its annual Christmas concert to benefit the Langley Christmas Bureau for two decades.

The concert tickets are the source of funding that is donated to the Christmas bureau.

On Dec. 9, First Capital Chorus donated $2,003 to the bureau, proceeeds from last year’s concert.

Harris noted that people don’t bring toys or gifts to this event. Any donations of more than $25 qualify for a tax receipt.

The tickets are $20 for general admission, and $15 for seniors and students.

Tickets are at Auld Philips, 20550 Fraser Highway, Beach Basket Giftware, 8850 Walnut Grove Dr., and Westland Insurance, 4075 200th St. People can also call Harris at 604-530-4795 to arrange will-call tickets.
