On Dec. 15th the Rosedale Valley String Orchestra and Central Alberta Homeschool Choir will take to the stage for their performance titled See Amid The Winter’s Snow.
“There’s a junior and a senior choir. There are about 70 in the junior and about 100 in the senior choir,” said Debbie Zepick, director of the choir.
They also work with the Rosedale Valley String Orchestra, which is a youth orchestra that rehearses at Burman University in Lacombe.
“The students are from all over Central Alberta and we do these concerts every year as a culmination of the choir program that I run,” said Zepick.
She added that the concerts are fundraisers for an orphanage boys’ home in Mwanza, Tanzania.
“All the funds from the concerts go to supporting the orphanage for their food, transportation, clothing costs and everything else.”
This is the 11th year they’ve been doing this, and Zepick said there have been lots of kids who have gone through the whole process.
The performances will also be running in Ponoka and Camrose.
The Lacombe performance will take place at College Heights Church at 7:30 p.m. at the Burman University campus.
No tickets are required, however there will be a free will offering to support the orphanage.
