Festive Magic, which will be held on Dec. 21 at 7:30 p.m. is a joyous way to end an exciting season. Festive Magic celebrates Christmas and all festive events that bring families and friends together.
This year the concert celebrates families and features performances by several local family groups including The Strong Family, Scott and Jody Johnson, Lindsay Scarrow and her mom, Heidi Munro, Violet Naytowhow and daughter Lillanohna Naytowhowcon, The Mihilewicz Family, The Sukkhu and Pillay families (performing a Bollywood dance) and Karen and Mike Langlois. In addition, the Prince Albert Children’s Choir, Rachel Bremner, Tristen Durocher and Arioso will perform. Santa Claus will be on stage.
You will hear some traditional Christmas music, some new Christmas songs, original songs and some celebratory music from different traditions. Everyone is invited to join Santa in the lobby for Christmas goodies during intermission.
Last week, I gave several live entertainment gift-giving suggestions and have a few more today.
A wonderful gift for someone special is an evening of food and entertainment on Valentine’s Day. Canada’s premier hypnotist, Wayne Lee, presents an interactive and highly entertaining show.
You can purchase tickets for a special Valentine’s day appetizer and dessert buffet entitled “Culinary Magic With Love” by Executive Chef Service to be held in the E.A. Rawlinson Centre atrium on Feb. 14 before Wayne Lee.
Stan Rogers was a legendary larger than life folk singer who was killed in a plane crash in 1983. His son, Nathan is celebrating his father with a concert of all Stan’s songs. For lovers of folk music this concert would make a very pleasing gift.
For fans of R & B, may I suggest Jully Black? Jully is known for her ability to engage audiences of all ages and backgrounds and is known as Canada’s “Queen of R&B.”
If you have someone on your list who loves world music, consider tickets to Archie Fisher, Scotland’s foremost troubadour and folk singer and for Celtic Crossroads which is a new show from Ireland predicted to do for Irish Music what Riverdance did for Irish Dance.
For the rockers, tickets for Les McEown’s Legendary Bay City Rollers are sure to please.
The E. A. Rawlinson Centre Box Office will be closed from noon on Dec. 24 to Jan. 2 at 9 a.m. On-line ticket sales will be available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week at www.earawlinsoncentre.ca.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all!
