Christmas signals changing tides for Tidesmen

The Tidesmen will be holding their Christmas Harmony concert at the Nanaimo Ecumenical Centre on Friday.

There will be plenty of Christmas spirit in Nanaimo’s north end tomorrow night.

On Friday (Dec. 5), the Tidesmen will be holding their Christmas Harmony concert at the Nanaimo Ecumenical Centre.

The concert will feature guest performances from the Nanaimo Youth Choir, Joëlle Rabu and the Heart of the Island Sweet Adelines.

“It’s going to be a packed, but really fun two-hour show,” said Tidesmen vice-president, Jim Cameron. “There is going to be a singalong with the audience.”

The Tidesmen are also expecting a special guest to appear at the concert.

“There will be a special guest from the North Pole,” Cameron said.

In previous years the Tidesmen have held a concert each November. However, this year they decided to move their November concert to a later date and focus the Christmas concert.

“This year we’ve expanded our Christmas show substantially,” Cameron said. “What we’ve done is shifted our normal November show at the Port Theatre to the Spring. It’s going to be in May next year. What that has done is allow us to have more time to really improve and finesse our Christmas show.”

The Tidesmen and their guest acts perform Friday at 7 p.m. at the Nanaimo Ecumenical Centre, 6234 Spartan Rd. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the door. They can also purchased at Arbutus Music, 6324 Metral Dr. and at the Quilted Duck, 5299 Rutherford Rd.
