Christmas holiday concerts are going virtual this year with Kelowna's Rotary Centre for the Arts adjusting to meet the new provincial mandate.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has mandated no social gatherings until at least until Dec. 7 as COVID-19 case counts have continued to rise.

Tom Jackson’s The Huron Carole is a seasonal music tradition spanning more than three decades from coast to coast and will be streamed live tonight through Zoom, according to the rotary centre’s website.

The Rotary Centre for the Arts and The Huron Carole have teamed up to help raise awareness and generate support for the Central Okanagan Community Food Bank. 

Famous for storytelling, and his love of Christmas, Tom Jackson - and fellow musicians – perform seasonal favourites under the bright lights of a professional stage.

Tickets for tonight’s show, which begins at 7 p.m. can be purchased online

Vernon’s Andrew Allan will also present a live Christmas show at the centre Dec. 5 through Zoom.

The centre is also bringing It's A Wonderful Life, a beloved holiday classic to living rooms everywhere from Dec. 10-13 at 7 p.m.

With the help of an ensemble that brings a few dozen characters to the stage, the story of idealistic George Bailey unfolds as he considers his life one fateful Christmas Eve with the help of an unlikely angel, according to the centre.

More information and a list of the rotary centre’s holiday events can be found through the centre’s website.
