Tidesmen sing carols in winter wonderland
The barbershop voices of the Tidesmen are filling Saturday (Dec. 15) with winter wonder during an upcoming concert.
The chorus and TheatreOne have joined forces during the Christmas Wonderland concert.
Joëlle Rabu, an actress and award-winning singer, is joining the Tidesmen onstage. She’s been performing since 1983.
“Having someone of Joëlle’s calibre and reputation join us for this concert adds both to the uniqueness of the program and to the enjoyment we all have in performing it,” said Roy Sage, Tidesmen president, in a press release.
Rabu said in a press release that she has become a Tidesmen fan and it’s “an absolute pleasure” to join them onstage.
“They have a great sound and I’m delighted to be able to support them and TheatreOne in this celebration of the holiday season,” she said. “I know it is an important fundraiser for both organizations and it is rewarding to see two such important members of the cultural community in Nanaimo collaborating in this way.”
The concert also features the a capella group, Shine, which consists of three local women, Narissa Young, Kay Nielsen and Heather Haseltine.
Christmas Wonderland concert is at the Ecumenical Centre, located at 6234 Spartan Rd., starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults or $32 for a family of four. They are available by calling 250-754-7587, online at www.theatreone.org or from members of the Tidesmen.
