Joining PMCL, for a portion of the concert, is nationally and internationally heralded Canadian Bass-Baritone, Chad Louwerse, whose voice is turning heads everywhere. Chad debuted in Europe with l’Opéra National du Rhin in Strasbourg as Bernadino in Berlioz’ Benvenuto Cellini. In Canada he has been heard from Quebec to British Columbia.  With Montreal Opera, he starred as Buonafede in Haydn’s Il Mondo Della Luna, sang Talpa in Il Tabarro, and covered Leporello in Don Giovanni. As a member of Montreal Opera’s Atelier Lyrique, he was singled out in Chabrier’s l’Étoile by Claude Gingras of La Presse, who wrote “for pure comedy, first distinction goes to Chad Louwerse”. You will be treated to a wide range of music, from the beautiful Panis Angelicus by César Franck to the recent ballad, Grown-up Christmas List. Traditional pieces in beautiful arrangements include: Silent Night, Wexford Carol and Go Tell It on the Mountain. Other Christmas classics will be on the program: I’ll Be Home for Christmas, Sleigh Ride and a very fun, Barbra Streisand-inspired version of Jingle Bells. You’ll be treated to: You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch from How the Grinch Stole Christmas; the combination of the The 12 Days of Christmas with Africa by the rock group Toto; a beautiful bit of Canadiana in Diane Loomer’s arrangement of Frobisher Bay; and the inspiring Nigerian Christmas melody Betelehemu. Joining the choir and Chad on the stage will be strings, flute and an outstanding rhythm section. You will not want to miss this concert.
