Festival benefits Red Cross

A few local acts, all influenced by Liisa Nessim, will be featured at the 10th annual Festival of the Voice on April 30 in Aldergrove.

Joy Vox Community Choir, directed by Nessim, has been singing up a storm throughout the Lower Mainland for the last 10 years. The group is a mixed choir made up of members from all walks of life who sing in varied styles.

Nessim also coaches Voce Destino, an all-women chamber choir, made up of 11 members.

Both groups will be in the nationals in May after winning gold at the Kiwanis Festival last year.

Nessim also works with Kitchen Sync, a local band that works mostly on original music from folk, jazz to rock. Nessim is involved with the three part harmony along with Laurel Nessim and Laura Wheeler. Leonard Jantzen is on guitar, Jan Giffen is on base, and Les Hatklin plays the flute.

Jennifer Scott will be the special guest artist for the show. She is a vocalist and pianist, specializing in jazz, blues and world music.

The Festival of the Voice takes place on April 30 at 7 p.m. at St. Dunstan Anglican Church, 3025 264 St. in Aldergrove.

Tickets are $15 each and available at the door. Children under the age of 12 are admitted free. Proceeds will help the Red Cross respond to the needs of Japan.
