If you need music to get you into the holiday mood, you might want to stop by Duncan’s Christian Reformed Church Saturday night.

The Cowichan Consort Orchestra and Choir proudly presents its annual December Sing-a long, where you can blend you voices with some of the finest singers and musicians in the valley in cornucopia of holday staples.

Guest operatic soprano  Alexandra Hill, originally from the Cowichan Valley, will be featured on O Holy Night, as part of evening that will feature talented singers of all ages.

“Audience participation to sing along with the orchestra, soloists and choir make this a fun evening for all music lovers.”

The Dec. 8 Christmas Classical Singalong starts at 7:30 p.m. in Duncan.

Tickets are $15, $12 for kids under 12  at the door  and at Volume One Bookstore in Duncan.
