Oak Bay High choir gives Monterey Rec a jazz club feel

Community Musical Pub Night comes to Monterey Recreation Centre Nov. 26

Young singers are set to sizzle on stage for the seniors’ centre.

“It’s always our best … when we perform in the community we get to see the reaction from community members,” said Kyle Lancaster.

The Grade 12 student is among the vocal jazz singers at Oak Bay High set to perform for the Community Musical Pub Night at Monterey Recreation Centre Nov. 26.

“It will be a well-rounded group of songs because everyone has picked a solo they like,” Lancaster said.

The group will perform three pieces, followed by a series of solos, including one from the the “very talented” rhythm section, he said.

“It’ll be that jazz club feel with a singer on stage backed by a band,” added teacher Tina Horwood.

The students regularly perform in the community, including outings to nearby seniors residence Shannon Oaks, for example.

“It’s always received very, very well,” Lancaster said.

Tickets for the Community Musical Pub Night are $17.25 and include a ham and scalloped potatoes dinner and dessert.
