Island Voices Choir will remember those who gave their lives in war with a Remembrance Day concert at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Campbell River.

Remembering in words and song those who gave

The Remembrance Day concert seeks to acknowledge those who make and have made sacrifices in war-time

Remembrance Day, Sunday November 11, will once again be honoured in words and song by Island Voices Chamber Choir, under the direction of Jo-Anne Preston.

The Remembrance Day concert seeks to acknowledge those who make  and have made sacrifices in war-time and to celebrate those who use their lives in the service of peace.

The power of music to access our deepest feeling is revealed in the range and beauty of songs written for occasions of remembrance. In their 2012 offering, the reality of soldiering is echoed in the poignancy of such songs as Canadian Soldier and In Flanders Fields; faith is expressed in Prayer of St Francis, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms and Oseh Shalom; friendship is honoured in Stand Together, and hope for peace is sung in Dona Nobis Pacem and Earth Song.

These and other songs will be interwoven with a selection of readings by community members which underline the theme of remembrance.

Voices In Remembrance will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11 in Christ the King Catholic Church in Courtenay, and at 7 p.m. in St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Campbell River.

Admission will be by donation, with partial proceeds to the Royal Canadian Legion.

For more information call 250-338-1439, 250-287-4236, or visit www.islandvoiceschamberchoir.bc.ca.
