Fresh and sparkling arrangements of God Rest Ye Merry, Gentleman from Marques L.A. Garrett; Noel from Naomi Laviolette; and Auld Lang Syne from Chor Leoni’s Erick Lichte will be presented alongside brand new Chor Leoni repertoire: It’s Almost Time by David Wilcox, arranged by Keith Sinclair; Ring Out by Zachary Wadsworthand Looks Like a Cold, Cold Winter arranged by Ken Cormier.

Originally slated to perform with Chor Leoni in April 2020, Wilson’s reunion with the JUNO-nominated men’s choir promises to imbue the festive performance with infectious energy, as Wilson effortlessly weaves his musical influences from jazz, classical, and folk styles into the season’s most popular classics. A sought-after violinist/fiddler, arranger, and composer within Vancouver’s music scene over the past three decades, Wilson has appeared on the recordings of Bryan Adams, Nickelback, and Charlotte Diamond, and regularly performs with Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Opera Orchestra, acoustic string jazz quartet Van Django and the Hard Rubber Orchestra.
