Christmas Music at the Convention Centre

The Winter Festival of Lights Christmas concert series at the Scotiabank Convention Centre wraps up today and tomorrow with performances by Lorrie Morgan and Ray Stevens.

Enjoy an evening at the show before retiring to your guest suite at the Marriott on the Falls, the closest hotel to the convention centre.

Lorrie Morgan was barely a teenager when she made her first major appearance in 1975 singing Paper Roses with her dad, country star George Morgan, on the Grand Ole Opry.  Her latest offering, I Walk Alone, is a labour of love that has been a lifetime in the making. The 12 songs she co-wrote and co-produced for the album find Lorrie in a particularly introspective and vulnerable place in her life. Cuts including Mirror, Mirror and Woman Thing offer her fans a rare look into the life of the woman whose life has quite literally been lived out on stage.

Ray Stevens just thinks funny. His humour is keenly observant and rich in nuance. His style is unaffected and unpretentious which for the past 50 years has allowed for entertainment that is both witty and guileless. From his multi-million selling comedy hit, The Streak to the socially aware Mr. Businessman to his Grammy award-winning pop standard Everything Is Beautiful, his talent has touched so many. Not only a singer and composer, Ray has also produced, arranged and played on the recordings of some of Nashville’s most legendary performers.

Morgan and Stevens will appear today at 2 p.m. and tomorrow at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $45 and are available by calling 1-800-563-2557 ext. 40.
