Panache Singers perform during sold-out Christmas show

Panache Singers carol in front of a packed house during their first full-length Christmas Concert.

The Panache Singers have sold-out their first full-length Christmas concert this Sunday (Dec. 18).

The group has performed for the past six years.

What makes the chorus unique, said member Heather Valsangkar, is the singers memorize the music and add choreography when they perform.

She said music is the common thread that pulled all the members together.

Valsangkar is currently taking voice lessons through the Royal Conservatory of Music and other members are also adding to or honing their craft.

Part of the proceeds from the concert are going to be donated to the Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank, said Valsangkar.
