The musical group Horizon

Annual Christmas at the Clarke concert takes place Dec. 16 in Mission

The holiday spirit will fill the air at the Clarke Theatre on Wednesday, Dec. 16 as the 16th annual Christmas At The Clarke Benefit Concert is set to begin at 7 p.m.

Rob Hess will be back this year to entertain the audience with his fabulous voice and stage presence. Hess will be accompanied by Rosslyn Delmonico.

Organizer John Agnew said he expects Hess to put on another great show with wonderful renditions of some of the best Christmas songs ever written.

Making their first appearance at the fundraising event are Boilies Goat, two local performers – Jennie Bice and Tony Ivan O’Hara – who formed a dynamic duo, performing music ranging from blues and rock to ballads.

As Bice puts it, they “will take the audience on a multi-faceted musical odyssey,” and the organizers are sure that they will leave the audience wanting more.

The band Horizon is performing this year, featuring five talented and entertaining musicians from the Fraser Valley: Rick Noel, Fred Schmidt, Asger Hansen, Johan Worst and Warren Grosland.

Featuring Crystal Hicks, Dana Wright and Chantelle Davidson, along with special guest Bruce Banman, Horizon performs a wide range of favorite Christmas songs.

The group performs music for every taste, old Christmas favourites, blues, jazz, rock and roll, and country.

Also on hand to perform is the Celtic band 1066. These talented entertainers are a favourite at the event every time they perform and in minutes have had audiences laughing, clapping and singing along.

Agnew advises people to get their tickets early.

Proceeds from the concert go towards helping two community organizations: the Christmas Bureau, and the shelter programs operated by the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley.

Doors open at 6 p.m. to allow people to drop off donations for the food bank, and seating begins at 6:30 p.m.

The Heritage Park Middle School choir will be performing in the lobby before the show and a silent auction will also be held.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and students and $10 for children 12 and under. Audience members are asked to bring donations to the food bank as well.

Tickets are available in Mission at London Drugs, Rex Cox Men’s Wear, Shoppers Drug Mart, Prospera Credit Union, Fraser Valley Building Supplies and your local credit unions.

For more information, call the Theatre at 604-820-3961 or Agnew at 604-217-1863.
