We don’t normally focus on the activities of the Guelph Chamber Choir on Folk Roots Radio but they do have an interesting seasonal concert coming up on Sunday November 30 at 3 p.m. at St. George’s Church, Downtown Guelph. “Carols for Christmas” features special guests “Winter’s Eve Trio” with Sharlene Wallace on Harp, Joe Macerollo on Accordion and George Koller on Bass. This is your opportunity to sing a variety of seasonal songs and carols with the choir in one of Guelph’s finest acoustic spaces. Between choral works and numbers by the trio, choir members will present seasonal readings and poetry.
Single tickets are $25 each or 4 for $80. Young adults can attend with $10 tickets for students and those 30 and under, and only $5 for youth with eyeGO.

About Winter’s Eve Trio
Sharlene Wallace is both a classical harpist and one of Canada ’s most prolific and influential Celtic harp players. “While technically virtuosic, her playing always manages to be sensuous and organic, all the while appearing as easy as child’s play.” Born and raised in Guelph, Joe Macerollo has opened the door to the acceptance of the concert accordion in Canada performing classical music with “a raucous, delightful twist”. A prolific composer, producer, and bassist, George Koller has accumulated hundreds of wildly diverse performing, touring, and recording credits. He has worked with Peter Gabriel, Holly Cole, Bruce Cockburn, and John McDermott, to name just a few!
