Special soloists are Shawn Spicer and Ken Baldwin on trumpet, and Laura McAlpine on organ.

Approximately 50 singers and 32 orchestral players plan to perform.

This will be a terrific event, guaranteed to lift your spirits!

This performance is dedicated to the memory of Saugeen County Chorus members Hilery McAlpine and Harold Tuck.

Tickets are $25 each; available through Wilder and Rain Flowers, Accents and Stilara in Kincardine, on-line at TicketScene, through any orchestra or chorus member, and at the door. Youth, aged 16 and under, admitted free!
