Cozy up with the magical sounds of Winter Harp in Chilliwack

Winter Harp brings medieval flare to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Dec. 11

Immerse yourself in the joy of Christmas on Dec. 11, as Winter Harp returns to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

Classical and Celtic harps, flutes, violin, rare medieval instruments, percussion, poetry and song come together in an unforgettable performance that will enfold you in the silken cloak of Christmas.

For 25 years, the Winter Harp ensemble has been renowned for delivering jaw-dropping performances, led by outstanding musicians and singers, clad in breathtaking attire.

Performing a collection of songs ranging from familiar carols to medieval and Celtic music, Winter Harp will captures the joyful spirit of the season. Magical backdrops of cathedrals and snow set the stage for classical harps, drums, temple bells, flutes, violin/fiddle, and an assortment of beautiful ancient and rare instruments — including the bass psaltery, the organistrum, and the Swedish nyckelharpa.

“Winter Harp traces its roots back to 1984 when, as a young reporter, I was told to write a feature on New Westminster Public Library’s chief librarian, Alan Woodland. I wasn’t thrilled at first, but within minutes of talking to Alan I was entranced by his love of books – and even more taken when we discovered a shared love of poetry, stories and music,” says Winter Harp co-founder and musical director, Lori Pappajohn.

“We started by doing a small library Christmas show together, Alan’s poetry and stories and my music. That was the kernel of what was to become Winter Harp. I’m thrilled to be sharing our 25th year of Christmas-times performance with old friends and new.”

The sound of carols – medieval, rare, and familiar – will make your heart sing, so don’t miss your chance to be part of the magic this Christmas.

Winter Harp is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Dec. 11 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 for adults, $42 for seniors and $40 for youths, and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
