Celtic song and dance take the Oak Bay stage for Mother’s Day show

Newcombe Singers explore music old and new on May 8

The Newcombe Singers are celebrating Mother’s Day with Celtic Reflections and dancing in Oak Bay this year.

Newcombe is a non-auditioned mixed choir singing a variety of music in four parts. A comfortable and friendly atmosphere allows members to sing to their individual abilities, develop personal and ensemble skills, and have fun.

The choir, formed in 1967, performs a wide variety of musical genres and styles, with a mix of familiar and thought-provoking pieces. This Mother’s Day, the focus is on Celtic musings – music from the old and new world.

Choir director Erica Phare-Bergh and accompanist Robert Jan Dukarm lead the group through an afternoon of singing, alongside an appearance by students from the O’Brien School of Irish Dance.

Celtic Reflections will be held Sunday, May 8 at 3 p.m. at St. Mary’s Church, 1701 Elgin Rd. Tickets are $20 at the door and from choir members. Children under 12 are free.
