Sunday Serenade returns to Saanichton

Sunday Serenade is back for the first of four concerts of the year with Pacific Fleet Dixie and the Jolly Tars.

In it’s ninth year, Sunday Serenade is back for the first of four concerts of the year with Pacific Fleet Dixie and the Jolly Tars.

The two groups are from the Naden Band, which has around 10 different groups within it that play at events and concerts. The Pacific Fleet Dixie consists of seven members playing Dixieland music, while the Jolly Tars is either a quintet or quartet playing jazz music.

“They’re very popular because of course they look wonderful when they’re in their uniforms and they’re good musicians,” said organizer John Smith, who co-ordinates the event with his wife, Sue.

The concert will take place this Sunday beginning at 2:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Church in Saanichton.

“It’s specifically designed to provide entertainment for the community in the area, mostly seniors,” said Smith.

There will be three other concerts as well. One will be in November, the next in February and then another at the end of March or early April.

Tickets are $15 each or $50 for four concerts. Children 12 and under are free. People can call 250-652-5392 or purchase tickets at the door.
