SANTA VISITS THE HALL

Once again this year following the Santa Claus parade, Santa himself took time from his very busy schedule to personally visit with the children of Parrsboro when he stopped by The Hall to speak with them and listen to their Christmas wishes. What a wonderful way to finish up a magical evening.

ANNUAL TREE LIGHTING

It was a magical night at the bandstand as the 'Clause Cause' once again managed a miracle. The tree is now fully and officially illuminated in a gorgeous setting. The turnout was wonderful, the children added the magic and the choir had everyone singing their favourite tunes. The spirit of Christmas has now officially arrived. With many thanks to Lawrence Nicoll for these wonderful photos of the event.

GUNNING AND CORMIER COMING TO THE HALL

The concert committee is pleased to announce that a special concert for Christmas will be held at The Hall on December 17th . Dave Gunning and JP Cormier will bring their Christmas show to Parrsboro and it is a night not to be missed. Tickets are now available here on the website and are only $40 so get yours early.

CONCERT FOR CARL A TREMENDOUS SUCCESS

The benefit concert arranged by Rob Bentley in order to help support Carl Cameron during his recovery from major surgery succeeded beyond anyone's imagining. The Hall was packed with members of the community, all wanting to help in some way and return to Carl some of what he has so freely given to all over the years.

The caring and compassion filled The Hall along with an amazing variety of music as everyone contributed their best. A wonderful night and all who attended wish Carl a speedy recovery.

CANADIAN CHAMBER CHOIR CONCERT SOLD OUT

The Canadian Chamber Choir performed at The Hall on Wednesday night to a full house. This choir is totally unique and completely Canadian, being created by volunteer professional musicians from across the country who gather twice a year in order to perform. This visit to Parrsboro has been over two years in the making as it was scheduled for almost exactly the day the whole country virtually closed down due to the pandemic. However Beth Peterkin stayed with the idea and finally, at last, the choir arrived to start its' Nova Scotia tour.

Equally unique to this choir is its' dedication to indigenous music and it was pleased to have two strong collaborators to contribute to this tour. Aaron Prosper of the Eskasoni First Nation (whose 'real job' is as project manager of the Nova Scotia Mi'kmaw Nation Cancer Care Strategy) and Sheryl Sewepagaham from the Little Red River Cree Nation in Alberta. She is a full time musician, composer, choral conductor and is dedicated to Indigenous music in all its' forms.

Those who were able to secure tickets were treated to a choral concert unlike any other performed by this highly skilled, talented and dedicated group of musicians. What a rare treat for The Hall to be able to host them.

CANADIAN CHAMBER CHOIR HOSTS WORKSHOP

The Parrsboro Citizens' Choir was presented with a unique opportunity on Tuesday evening when they combined with the CCC for a choral workshop. Surrounded by the talented and dedicated performers of the visiting choir, they learned new vocal techniques, rehearsed alongside the 'pros' and generally had a very enjoyable time.

Come out and help Carl through this rough patch and enjoy a night of terrific entertainment. There will be a bar available so admission is restricted to those 19 yrs of age and older.

ANOTHER GREAT OPEN MIC NIGHT

Friday night saw yet another terrific evening of entertainment at The Hall as oen mic returned once again with a great line up of talent and a most appreciative audience. It is great to once again be able to host these evenings, enjoyed so much by so many.

ELVIS NIGHT A HUGE SUCCESS

The film "Elvis" screened last Wednesday to a packed house at The Hall. For this occasion reservations were required and several people were disappointed, especially when they found that prior to the screening there was some terrific live entertainment featuring The King's tunes and an unorthodox 'backup group'
