Festival of Carols delights with songs of the season
Time Brody - Associate Editor
The Sioux Lookout Community Choir, under the leadership of new director Gerard Normand, presented The Festival of Carols December 3 at Sacred Heart Church.
Performing songs such as Will There Be Room?, Call Him Jesus, Do You Hear What I Hear?, and The Little Drummer Boy, the choir sang before a full house at both afternoon and evening performances.
Former choir director Marlene MacDonald, who was not able to attend the performance, was recognized during the evening, as was former accompanying pianist Bonnie Sobchuk. MacDonald and Sobchuk helmed the festival for more than 25 years.
Proceeds from this year’s offering will go Second Chance Pet Network.
Normand announced planning is underway for a possible Easter concert.
