Ken Lavigne is performing his Christmas Musical Roadshow in Golden on Dec. 7.

Christmas performance will bring the past to life

Next week Golden is being treated to the Ken Lavigne Christmas Roadshow, a throwback to the golden age of live radio.

The next Kicking Horse Culture performance will transport the audience back to the golden age of radio, and those classic Christmas specials.

Singer Ken Lavigne, haling from Vancouver Island, hopes to bring the past to life with this winter season special.

“This is year two and we are so excited. It’s a throwback to the golden age of live radio, evoking the sounds of radio drama, with special sound-effects, and presenting a Christmas story, putting our own modern spin on it,” Lavigne says. “We will be dressing the stage as an old time radio studio, as best we can. It’s entertainment, sharing stories and the Christmas spirit – which is all about joy.”

Lavigne, who has charmed his way into the hearts of concert goers across North America with his exciting blend of classical tenor sound and modern style, was a founding member of The Canadian Tenors and co-founder of the successful tenor trio ROMANZA, and has been touring and recording solo since 2008. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, worked extensively with famed producer David Foster and toured across North America.

A lifelong fan of the festive season, the multi-faceted entertainer can be counted on to showcase Christmas favourites, ballads, show tunes and classical crossover hits as well as telling funny and touching seasonal tales.

“Everybody has their favourite Christmas songs and you can’t do them all. I think I know my audience pretty well now and know what they are going to like,” he says. “The beloved classics such as White Christmas and Deck the halls will be well represented – Blue Christmas may make an appearance as well.”

You can see Ken Lavigne’s Christmas Musical Roadshow at the Golden Civic Centre on Wendesday Dec. 7. Tickets are available at the Art Gallery of Golden.
