The Allegra Singers Present ..

Christmas Dreaming

Friday December 6 @ 8pm and Saturday December 7 @ 2pm

Why are The Allegra Singers dreaming of Christmas?

With a wonderful mix of songs from Christmas classics to Seasonal favourites as well as hits from yesteryear to modern musicals and movies we can’t help but feel excited to share these musical gems with you this season!

The Dream Theme

Plus, some of our songs have a distinctive dream theme, such as California Dreamin’ (#89 on The Rolling Stone’s list of “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”), Please Come Home For Christmas (written by Charles Brown in 1960 and made famous by The Eagles), and Believe from the popular movie “The Polar Express”.

And you’ll love a song called When Christmas Comes ..
There’s a hush in the snow gently falling
and we turn from the dark and the cold
to the wonder that starts in each of our hearts
when Christmas, Christmas comes.

Dream Scenes

The dreams of bygone eras will be presented through songs such as On the Street Where You Live (from “My Fair Lady”), One (from the Broadway musical “A Chorus Line”) and Cheek to Cheek (written by Irving Berlin in 1935 and recorded by Fred Astaire).

Christmas Dreams

Of course, we’ll serenade you with some of your favourite Christmas melodies like The Virgin Mary Had a Baby Boy, The Coventry Carol, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Mistletoe and Holly and a song from a local artist called Beacon Hill Carol.

Here’s a sample from a previous winter concert:

Join the Fun and Be Entertained

Come and enjoy the musical creativity of director Jennifer Parlee, the chorus, the talented soloists and small ensembles, our awesome pianist and more… And, once again, we’ve got a chance for you to sing along to a few of your favourite carols to help you get into that Christmas spirit.

Every season the Allegra Singers give back to the community by making a donation to a local charity. This season we are happy to support the Inter-Cultural Association of Victoria that helps immigrants and refugees reach their goals.

You could also win one of the numerous door prizes… a bottle of wine, a spa treatment, a piece of jewelry, etc, etc… You could even win the 50/50 draw (often worth as much as $100) …just in time for your Christmas shopping!

Don’t miss the fun this year! Get a great start to your Christmas spirit. But don’t risk buying at the door. Order now before they’re all sold out!
