“Welcome Winter” with Dylan Thomas and music on Saturday, November 20, 2010

A Child's Christmas In Wales 2010

A Child's Christmas In Wales 2010

JC, together with Allison Woyiwada, produces the third annual reading of the Dylan Thomas classic, A Child’s Christmas in Wales, featuring Rob Clipperton, with Ciana Van Dusen and Scott Olson.

“There is nothing better than a live performance of A Child’s Christmas in Wales,” notes JC. “I knew our community would enjoy hearing it read aloud in the lead-up to the holidays. Through this reading, I hoped everyone would fall for the magic and rhythm of Dylan Thomas, just as I had. I’m thrilled that Rob is back to lend his wonderful presence to the afternoon.”

Rob Clipperton readily confesses his own delight in participating in this program. “The rich and descriptive language Dylan Thomas uses in this story is a joy to read. The images of the characters and the situations are so vivid that you can really see them unfold in your own imagination. The story has such universal appeal – family, the traditions and customs of the special holiday season, the adventures of a young boy – no wonder it’s a favourite!”

The one-hour program celebrates harmony and love with voices from The Canterbury Alumnae Trebles and Canterbury High School’s Vocum, The Savoy Society and Ottawa soprano Maria Woyiwada.

The event takes place on Saturday, November 20, at 4:30 p.m., in Glebe-St. James United Church, 650 Lyon St. at First Avenue. Tickets are available from the Church, Compact Music stores, Kaleidoscope Kids Books or at the door ($15 adults; great for children 10 and over, who enter free.) Net proceeds this year will benefit The Ottawa Food Bank. Further information: 613 235 4144.
