Chanteuse Canadienne, Cari Burdett, winner of the Vancouver Island Vocalist of the Year 2016, presents her sell-out Winter Solstice Music Concert for the 7th year running…
Would you believe it’s just about that time of year again for our Winter Solstice Concert! Burdett, along with acclaimed Fado singer Sara Marreiros and musical friends return this year to present the 7th Annual Winter Solstice Concert.
This wonderful Cowichan Valley tradition weaves acoustic music together with song and dance! And, this year we have chosen the theme ‘Weaving the Light’ bringing in light and joy to these dark days. Our 7th annual concert will take place at Sylvan United Church (Mill Bay), Sooke Harbour House (Sooke) and Oak Bay (Victoria) December 21 thru 23rd.
“Every year we offer an array of different songs and 2017 will not disappoint! ” explains Burdett . Music is gleaned from around the world and mixed with touch of theater, a dash of dance and a pinch of improvisation. Weaving in something new for ALL to enjoy is winter pop classics from award winning performer ‘Sting’. Enjoy `Hounds of Winter` and `Snow it Melts`` - Sting; `Song for a Winter Night` - Gordon Lightfoot; `River` - Joni Mitchell; a popular French Canadian fiddle tune, Folk Songs, just to mention a taste of this concerts winter music.
We are very excited at the talent we have to share this year. Come and meet award winning youth QuiN Etherridge-Pedden (violin), international awarded Adrian Dolan (piano, accordion, and guitar), Nick Mintenko (bass, vocals), Adam Dobres (guitarist) joining vocalists Sara Marreiros and Cari Burdett. For true visual pleasure Marisa Jackson, dancer adds movement to complete an extraordinarily sensory experience.
In addition, Lila Community Choir will also perform at Mill Bay and Oak Bay (Victoria) concerts.
To celebrate the turning wheel of the year and the return of the light, the band will invite the audience to join them in creating a one-of-a-kind, improvised soundscape, as well as an exuberant close to the evening with a hand-clapping-sing-along of `This little Light of Mine`. This concert will be amazing!
A big thank you to our 2017 Sponsors!
