Come December, there will be a plethora of ways to ring in the holiday season, but only one will offer a unique twist on a classic tradition.
On Saturday December 8, the Lions Gate Sinfonia will host a Sinfonia Family Christmas. Above all, the evening aims to get everyone in the audience into the festive spirit, 1930’s Paris style.
Van Django will headline the magical night with special guests harmonica virtuoso Keith Bennett and vocalist extraordinaire LJ Mounteney. Consequently, they’ll delight the audience with flights of dazzling fancy, driving rhythms, and boundless creativity in their Gypsy Jazz Style alongside North Vancouver’s Lions Gate Sinfonia in a fun for all family performance.
That means sing-along songs and carols, paired with classical and witty repertoire from the Baroque and beyond.
