Wrapping up WinderFest will be the annual WinterSong concert put on by the Prince Rupert Rotary Community Choir.

The performance is one of a few full concerts put on by the Prince Rupert choir group. Choir leader Peter Witherly said the First United Church will provide a beautiful sound for the choral music included in the performance.

The concert will include performances mainly by the Prince Rupert Rotary Community Choir, but also the Prince Rupert doo-wop sensation The Rolling Tones and a combo from the Prince Rupert Community Band.

“There’s a fair variety in the programme this year,” Witherly said, adding the concert will include a variety of choral music from madrigal to swing, as well as Christmas


The audience will also have the opportunity to join the show and sing along to a number of traditional Christmas songs, including Joy to the World, O Come, All Ye Faithful and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing.

“There are a lot of familiar songs. One of the things people like about Christmas is the familiarity of the music,” Witherly said.

WinterSong will take place at the First United Church on Sunday, Dec. 8., with the performance starting at 3 p.m. Admission is by donation.
