St. Michael's Presents wants to bring more joy to your world this holiday season.

Fresh of a show last weekend in Duncan, the Cowichan Valley Youth Choirs are headlining a holiday show in Chemainus on Sunday.

Sheila Johnson and her charges are staging Joy to the World as the monthly concert series tries to hit the right holiday note in its December installment.

"Come and enjoy the pure, sweet voices of forty young singers as they portray the essence of all we most love about Christmas," promoter Maisie Barnett said in a press release.

The junior and concert choirs, as well as the chorale will take turns in the spotlight and join forces for a mix of holiday hymns, including Carol of the Children, When I Kneel at the Manger Tonight, and Be Glad This Festive Day.

The music starts at 2 p.m., Dec. 9 at St. Michaels in downtown Chemainus.

Tickets ($15 in advance or $20 at the door) are available at Valley Vines to Wines (Mill Bay), Ten Old Books (Duncan), Ocean Soul Book Caffé (Crofton), Salamander Books (Ladysmith), Little Town Market Co. (Chemainus), the Chemainus Festival Inn or by calling 250-748-8383.
