A Child's Christmas in Wales

Sunday, December 11, 2016 - 11:30am to Monday, December 12, 2016 - 3:00pm

Alex takes us back to Wales

Brings music and reading of the Christmas classic home to OMAH

Don Evans and the band Alex are bringing "A Child's Christmas in Wales" and some great music back to the Orillia Museum of Art and History, building a welcome Christmas tradition, this year for the  benefit of The Couchiching Conservancy and OMAH.

Sing-a-long carols and new songs by Alex will usher in the presentation by Evans, an emeritus member of the band who is a mellifluous and compelling reader. This will be the second year of this growing Alex event at OMAH.

"It will be a chance for people to sing some of the seasonal music they love, and listen to a wonderful traditional story by Dylan Thomas," says Margaret Pomeroy, the band member who has created song sheets for the audience.

"We used to read 'A Child's Christmas in Wales' in our house every year as I was growing up," she adds. "Now we're bringing music and this lovely story to others."

The eight-member Orillia-based folk band Alex is a local tradition in itself. The band has been welcoming audiences with great harmonies and fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, bodhran, pipes, autoharp, and keyboard for more years than its members can count. Alex plays many venues, including regular gigs at the market and frequent spots at the Mariposa Folk Festival. Band members know how to have a good time making music, and like to share the good times with others.

The beloved “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” with Alex will be presented at OMAH, 30 Peter St. S., on Sunday, December 11, 2016.

The performance gets underway at 1:30 p.m. Doors open at 1:00. Latecomers will be seated at an appropriate interval.

Admission is by donation, in support of The Couchiching Conservancy and OMAH.

Hot cider will be provided by way of refreshment, to add to the warmth of the afternoon.

For further information, please contact Ninette Gyorody of OMAH at 705-326-2159 x101, or Tanya Clark of The Couchiching Conservancy at 705-326-1620.
