ESTEVAN - Local musicians provided plenty of Christmas cheer on Sunday night during the Rotary Club of Estevan's 69th annual Christmas Carol Festival at St. Paul's United Church.

The event featured a variety of music, ranging from well-known and beloved songs to obscure selections. The musicians sang and played instruments for the crowd that packed the church's sanctuary.

After a prelude of Christmas music by Danielle Evenson and Allison Holzer, the program began with members of the Northwest and Southeast Chorus singing selections from their recent 51st annual Celebration of Christmas Music concert.

Kirkman Rennalls impressed with a piano solo, Music for Young Children performed a couple of carols, Sofie Morrow and Hudson Hozjan delivered a piano duet, and the Spruce Ridge School choir played a couple of selections. Then the audience had their chance to sing a few songs.

Diana Rokn played a piano solo, Laurie Fornwald and Emily Gillies each had vocal solos, the Estevan Comprehensive School's choir performed, and local praise band The Way – comprised of Cheri Haberstock, and Cindy and Kevin Guillemin – played a few selections.

The program wrapped up with additional carol singing, with the Rotarians joining in to sing We Wish You a Merry Christmas. 

Admission was by donation. Proceeds from the event will be directed to the Estevan Salvation Army.
