It’s the most wonderful time of the year and the Burlington Performing Arts Centre will be aglow with its 6th Annual Festival of Trees, once again sponsored by Canadian Tire – Burlington Stores, from November 23rd to December 17th.

Local businesses have sponsored and generously decorated 30 6-foot, pre-lit artificial trees, which will light up the Family Lobby for four weeks, until their silent auction ‘winners’ take them home for the holidays. Trees may be viewed during regular box office hours, which are Monday to Saturday from 12pm to 4pm, as well as one hour prior to each live performance.

Along with the Festive Trees, the Burlington Gazette has organized several choirs that will perform on December 10th at both 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm

There are numerous My Pop Choirs in the GTA area. They meet once a week to sing. The Burlington group will be at the Performing Arts Centre on December 10th. If you want to experience th pure joy of song – bring the whole family, view the 30 trees and listen to Christmas Carols

The My Pop Choir is sending up to 20 of their members to perform at 1:00 pm. This is a very robust choir that will delight you with some of the seasonal classics. They might call upon you to join them in some of the carols.

At 3:00 pm SOLO (Southern Ontario Lyric Opera) will perform. A little more classic in their approach – their rendition of O Holy Night will take your breath away

Solo will also be performing Home for the Holidays on the Main Stage on December 7th, 7:30 pm

The Performing Arts Family Room will be decorated with 30 Christmas Trees.

Patrons can take home one of 30 beautifully decorated trees, including all decorations and ‘gifts’ by entering the Silent Auction. Place your bid by 8pm on Saturday, December 17th. The minimum bid for one of these festively decorative trees is $10, and all proceeds support the efforts and initiatives of the charitable, not-for-profit Burlington Performing Arts Centre.

“No bid is too generous, when it comes to supporting the arts and local talent,” says BPAC Executive Director Tammy Fox. “This year, more than any other, we will benefit from music, laughter, art, and drama to celebrate the holiday season, as we emerge from the pandemic. This is a chance to help artists and arts audiences flourish in our community. Thanks go to the local businesses who have generously sponsored trees this year. They are all stepping up to support the arts in our community and we hope that our patrons will in turn support their businesses this holiday season and beyond.”
