Universal Gospel Choir and Orchestra featuring Roy & Rosemary
A 70 Voice Choir and 25 person orchestra with Roy & Rosemary will get you in the Christmas Spirit!
To honour the majestic Orpheum theatre, the Choir, led by seasoned Music Director Lonnie Delisle, will be supported by the UGC Band – with Michael Creber on piano, Jay Nickel on bass, Jay Esplana on drums and Jay Leonard Juatco on guitar – and new this year, a full orchestra, with strings, woodwinds, and brass, bringing the music to life. This year’s concert will take you back to a traditional holiday experience as more classic songs are performed.
