The Wiebes back in Penticton by popular demand

Husband and wife duo Shane and Angela Wiebe are returning to Penticton by popular demand.

Shane came to Penticton just over two years ago as part of the Christian group Tenore and sang to a sold out crowd at the Cleland Theatre on Mother’s Day. Last summer, Shane and Angela presented their summer concert to a standing room only crowd at the Church of the Nazarene.

The duo officially formed The Wiebes in 2007 and have since released five studio albums, including The Hymns Collection. This album won Inspirational Album of the Year at the 2012 Gospel Music Awards of Canada.

Shane got his start when he climbed to the Top 5 spot on Season 2 of Canadian Idol, where he had the privilege of working with both Gordon Lightfoot and Lionel Richie.

Together the couple have sung for millions, appearing numerous times on TV, and charting on Canadian radio with their single Christmas With You. They have appeared regularly on Living Truth Television, 100 Huntley Street and Grace Television.

The Wiebes recently released a new album, Arise O Sleeper. It features 11 new tracks, seven written by the couple.

On their return trip to Penticton, the couple will be presenting two concerts. On Sunday, July 13 they will take the morning service at the Church of the Nazarene at 10:25 a.m. Then on Monday, July 14 they will present their full concert at 7 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The church is located at 523 Jermyn Ave. and there is free admission to the concert.
