The sounds of the Christmas season will be in the air when Cedar Park Church in Ladner hosts the sixth annual Music and Dessert Evening in support of the Delta Hospice Society.
The concert is set for Saturday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m.
This year welcomes two well-known local musical talents, Tracy Neff and Tony Barton, to the program.
The duo will perform sacred and secular Christmas favourites from the Jingle Show, which is set for Saturday, Dec. 15 at Genesis Theatre in Ladner.
Barton is originally from Chicago and has performed many styles, including opera, musical theatre, pop, country, rock and jazz.
From being a gondolier in Las Vegas to fighting for a break in New York City to living like a king on a cruise ship, Barton's experiences add an intimate and relatable feel to any evening.
He recently performed several tributes to Frank Sinatra that met with rave reviews.
Neff is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory of Music and keeps busy with recital work.
She loves collaborating with artists from Canada and around the world, performing concerts in California, Boston, New York and Mexico, and hoping to add more destinations to the list.
She relishes in performing new works and is also gifted in her ability to breathe new life into well-known and popular classic repertoire.
"We are privileged to support Delta Hospice in their phenomenal service to our community," says Catharine Gilmour, one of the event organizers.
"The support that Cedar Park Church has shown for us is truly a blessing," says Delta Hospice executive director Nancy Macey.
"We are so thankful for this and value these important community partnerships. We encourage anyone who has never been to one of these nostalgic evenings to come out and enjoy."
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by calling Cedar Park at 604-946-7410. It is recommended that tickets be purchased early as they sell out each year.
