Renowned anthem singer Mark Donnelly performed at the Clarke Benefit Concert last Saturday.

Mark Donnelly is known to Canucks fans as simply “Mr. O’ Canada” for his spirited renditions of the Canadian and American national anthems.

Now, to celebrate the release of his new holiday CD, Donnelly and his family will perform seasonal favorites at the Clarke Theatre on Friday,  Dec. 23.

An accomplished choral conductor and arranger, Donnelly began directing church choirs as a teenager and continues to do so.

It is impossible to talk about Donnelly without mentioning music. The three eldest Donnelly children have grown up singing along with dad, earning them years of vocal experience.

Colleen’s beautiful soprano voice and vivacious personality have won her many accolades. Theresa hits you with a rich mezzo voice.  And Sean is a lively “tenortone”  like his dad.
