Canada 150 Choral Celebration
Sun May 14
Sunday, May 14, 2017, 2:00 PM
Command Performance Choir, in collaboration with The Goulbourn Jubilee Singers of Ottawa, will celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial with a concert of all Canadian music, from our distant past right up to the present moment. A highlight of the afternoon will be the premiere of a newly commissioned work by Composer James Wright, ” Sleep Softly Spirit of Earth”, which is set to poetry by Al Purdy, the County’s poet from Roblin Lake.
This initiative is made possible by support from the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between Prince Edward County Community Foundation in conjunction with Canada 150 and co-sponsored by Quinte Arts Council , the Government of Canada and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast.
A portion of the proceeds will go to support the A-Frame Association. Tickets $25-available from The Regent Theatre.
