Giveaway: Win two tickets to tomorrow night’s Chamber Players of Canada Christmas concert!

‘Tis the season for giveaways here at Local Tourist!

Tuesday night is the opening performance of the Chamber Players of Canada’s 2011-2012 concert series and Local Tourist Ottawa wants you to be there so we can absorb the Christmas spirit vicariously through your experience.

The folks over at the Chamber Players of Canada kindly donated two tickets to tomorrow’s festive affair, and we’re raring to give them away to a lucky Local Tourist reader.

Here’s an excerpt of the Saturday story the Ottawa Citizen wrote about the concert…

Other pieces in the concert will include Torelli’s chamber arrangement of his Concerto in G minor “Christmas,” Dvorak’s Bagatelles, Victor Herbert’s March of the Toys, Fritz Kreisler’s Midnight Bells and Toy Soldiers March and Frederic Cowen’s Four English Dances in the Olden Style.

It’s the kind of mix of familiar and lesser-known pieces that audiences have responded to enthusiastically at the ensemble’s previous two Christmas concerts, which have drawn capacity crowds to Dominion-Chalmers Church.

So how do you win? Well, it’s simple.

We all have our favourite holiday songs – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments below or by tweeting us @LTOttawa. We’ll mix up the names and announce the lucky winners tomorrow afternoon.
