The West Ottawa Ladies Chorus (WOLC) is presenting a Kaleidoscope of colourful tones to celebrate the season of winter and Christmas. A Christmas Kaleidoscope will delight the audience and please everyone's taste in music. The chorus works diligently to blend soprano, second soprano and first and second alto to a seamless sound. Under the direction of Robert Dueck, the WOLC strives for the highest standards from the top ranges to the lowest notes. Blending notes, like colours creates patterns of sound – a kaleidoscope.
This season, the audience will experience colourful tunes from spiritual to jazz to rag to show tunes. There will surely be toe tapping along with silent reflection. Although the concert is a celebration of Christmas, it is also a celebration of winter and will appeal to all cultures – music for everyone.
The WOLC is committed to giving back to the community and visits several senior's residences to take the gift of music to those who may not be able to attend a public performance. The smiles on the faces of the residents reward the singers as does the joy of hearing the audience join in to sing popular numbers.
At each performance. the WOLC invites special guests to add variety to the program. This year Gracenote, a vocl trio, Lynn Lane, Allison Fagan and Diane Coulterman accompanied by Andy Duffy on keyboard, will join the chorus. Helen Mogford as
guest instrumentalist will wow the audience.

Be sure to set aside the dates: Saturday, December 3rd at 7 pm at St. Paul's Anglican Church, 20 Young Rd., Kanata; Sunday December 4th at 2:30 pm at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1817 Richardson Side Rd., Carp.
