Event Description

After a long break, we are thrilled to offer you a very special musical experience. We hope you, your family, and friends will be able to join us in celebrating the return of the light.

Cari Burdett presents her sell-out Winter Solstice Music Concert for the 8th year, a family tradition enjoyable for all ages. This wonderful yearly musical tradition weaves acoustic music, lots of singing with jazz, folk, and new arrangements, providing warmth and peace on the longest night of the year. Bringing forward the spirit of cabaret and combining it with music from around the world and a dash of improvisation, this show is sure to please!

To celebrate the returning light, musicians will collect holiday wishes from the audience and create a one-of-a-kind piece of music to honor this very special time of year. “Every year we offer an array of songs connecting us to different Winter Solstice traditions in the world, and 2023 will not disappoint!” explains Burdett.

Joining us this year is the incredible ensemble of Anne Schaefer (voice, guitar, piano), Quin Etheridge-Pedden (Unfaithful Servants) (violin, vocals), Adrian Dolan ( The Bills) (piano, accordion, vocals, and guitar), Scott White (bass, vocals), Lila Community Choir, The Collective, Cari Burdett (vocals), along with Special Guests.

Throughout the evening, the audience can be expected to join in and sing along. The exuberant close to the evening will be a hand-clapping-sing-along of “This Little Light of Mine.”
This concert has become a cherished Solstice tradition, offering one Matinee at 2pm and one Candlelight show, 7pm on December 16th at the Sylvan United Church in Mill Bay, and one evening show in Victoria at 7pm on December 17th, at the beautiful Church of Truth.
