Our Christmas Concert!

We are hard at work preparing our annual Christmas Concert which will be held Saturday December 19 at 3pm in the Mill Road Community Space. We look forward to singing for you and WITH you: one of our favourite parts of the concert is singing Christmas Carols and other seasonal songs with our audience.

All are welcome - this beautiful space has not only pews and chairs for its audience, but also a huge, lovely carpet with cushions so that you can snuggle up with your children to enjoy the music. 

Admission is by donation.

Remembrance Day

We participated in the Remembrance Day Ceremony at Chelsea Pioneer Cemetery again this year.

I had the pleasure of working with some of the grade 5/6 students from Chelsea Elementary School so that we could join together with them to sing the song in the ceremony. Which song?! A very special song called We Are the Lucky Ones, written by Deborah Thomson our former accompanist and a very active musician in our area.

The Gatineau Valley Historical Society has put together a beautiful video from the day: http://www.gvhs.ca/news/remembrance.html.
