The Christmas concert " Merry Christmas from the MetroTones" was a huge success with another sell-out crowd that was held Friday, December 14, 2018 at the Wesleyan Celebration Centre. Over $25,000 was raised in cash and food donations to help the needy at this time of year. Thanks to all who participated, donated and attended our concert. The BEST one yet!!
You blew me away ... lots of goosebumps and the occasional teary eye! Such a fantastic concert! Comments from the audience "best performance ever!" And the men ... well you certainly held your part! Missed being on the risers but sure enjoyed listening to all the beautiful music. Couldn't help humming along. Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all! -Linda Hooper
Tonight 1800 people filled the Wesleyan Celebration Centre for the annual MetroTones’ Christmas concert. These community singers provide an evening of favourite seasonal music and raise funds for our local foodbank. Tonight presentations were made to the Ray of Hope Soup Kitchen and the Karing Kitchen, each $1000, and the Food Depot Alimentaire, more than two tons of donated food and a cheque for $10,000. In addition, at intermission, a special loonie request for cereal brought in more than $2000 extra. The programme included a delightful mix of traditional carols along with interesting others, “I Believe” from Polar Express, a great version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (which has got far too much attention for the wrong reasons this year!), and a kazoo ensemble (you won’t find that everywhere)! The evening ended with the MetroTones’ signature song, “Let There Be Peace on Earth. Kudos to the chorus members, the directors Peter Butler and Pat Dickie, the personable emcee Louise Fyffe, and the people of the Greater Moncton area who support this event faithfully. - Wayne Harrigan
Great concert as always... but this year I loved the different renditions of familiar carols/hymns put together and arranged musically to completely beautiful new sounds! Well done Metrotones! Merry Christmas to all!������ -Marlene Godfrey
