Vocal groups combining for concert in Nanaimo

A Cappella Plus and Panache join together for ‘I Dreamed of Rain’ on Saturday, Nov. 30

Harmony is coming to City Council chambers this weekend when a pair of local vocal groups turn the space into a music venue.

On Saturday night A Cappella Plus and Panache present I Dreamed of Rain at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre’s Shaw Auditorium.

“The overarching theme is water. Anything to do with water,” A Cappella Plus director Patricia Plumley said. “Here Comes the Sun has only one water word in it and it’s ‘ice,’ so we go with whatever tenuous connection we find.”

WHAT’S ON … A Cappella Plus and Panache perform at Shaw Auditorium, 101 Gordon St., on Saturday, Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $23 at the door or $20 in advance from members or online.
