The Friends of St. Mary’s is the non-profit group providing assistance and support to the Indian River Festival, focusing on maintaining St. Mary’s Church building and grounds. This year, the organization is proud to present two fund-raising Christmas Concerts.
A Traditional PEI Christmas
Sunday, November 29, 2:30pm
Tickets: $15, children 12 and under are free
This concert of fine local talent will get you in the holiday spirit, featuring the Men of the Harvest choral group, together with young and impressive soloist Samantha Munden, fiddler Jason Campbell, and singer/storyteller Michael Pendergast. Men of the Harvest is directed and accompanied by Bonnie LaFrance and has been performing for Island audiences throughout this year. Join us for an afternoon of traditional and well-loved music and stories.
"Huron Carole" featuring Tom Jackson
Sunday, November 29, 7:30pm
This evening performance will be the first time the Huron Carole Tour has been featured on PEI, and the Friends of St. Mary’s say that they are so pleased to offer this “magical journey” to Island audiences. The Tour, started by well-known First Nations actor and singer, Tom Jackson, is described as a state-of-the-art, multi-media magical journey featuring enchanting songs of Christmas with a shimmering light of faith and plenty of “TomFoolery.” At the heart of this classic story is how Christmas literally saved Tom’s life and helped provide hope for millions of needy Canadians for almost three decades.
Honoring 28 years of fundraising history, Tom’s varied philanthropic national projects have generated over $200 million in combined cash and in-kind donations for food banks and disaster relief. The 2015 tour will begin in St. John’s on November 28, followed by St. Mary’s on November 29, and end in Victoria on December 18. Presenting Sponsor is Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life.
