Some upcoming musical events for great causes involving some of our CARTS volunteers. There is something about music that is good for the soul, especially when it is in support of a cause that restores and builds our common humanity.
( # 1 ) The Freedom Gospel Choir, a community choir singing mostly black gospel music. Under the same director for two years in the Cowichan Valley, and she has now started a choir here in Victoria as well! On Saturday, Feb 27th there will be a concert with both choirs performing, and part of the concert will be the two choirs combined! (80-90 voices). They are very excited about this opportunity! Tickets are $15 & can be obtained from any choir member or from the First Nazarene Church.
( # 2 ) All Victoria Hymn Along 2016: On Friday evening, March 4, you are invited to join your voices with other Victoria Christians at the first annual All Victoria Hymn Along at Victoria Christian Reformed Church, 661 Agnes Street. Many of your favourites accompanied by pipe organ, trumpet, piano, violin and bagpipes. Guest musicians Sandy Lockhart and Pacific Christian's The Other Group will round out the evening. You’ll get a chance (in advance) to help select the top ten hymns, all of which we’ll sing that night (www.surveymonkey.com/r/hymnalong) Tickets ($10) are available at Christian Book and Music and both Pacific Christian School offices.
