Remembrance Day 2019

We are very proud to have been able to participate again this year in Chelsea's annual Remembrance Day Ceremony. We sang 3 songs:

  • The junior choir began with "Ma Petite Lumière à Moi" (This Little Light of Mine)
  • The senior choir joined Ian Tamblyn to sing "Soldier Down" an original song whose lyrics are co-written choir member Hazel's brother, Simon, in collaboration with singer-songwriter Ian Tamblyn.
  • Both choirs sang "Amani" by Jim Papoulis, an inspiring song about freedom and peace.
Then, senior choir member Ellie Lemieux led all gathered in O Canada.

Thanks to the Gatineau Valley Historical Society for inviting us to join in.
Thanks to Wayne Anderson for filming the videos shared below.
