Canzona Concert – Tuesday, April 9, 7:30 pm at Westminster Church — Under the baton of their Music Director Kathleen Allan, the venerable Canzona joins the MCO to perform the underperformed, and oddly humorous, Handel’s Israel in Egypt. Its epic nature, fit for a Hollywood blockbuster, will be given its full due with a 28-voice strong choir and a mighty ensemble of the MCO that includes oboes, bassoons, trumpets, horn, timpani, organ, and harpsichord! Watch the trailer here; buy tickets here.

#passbillC262 now! – The Indigenous Rights Act is stuck in the Senate.

Please email Opposition Whip, Senator Donn Plett, and ask him to support Bill C-262 and the basic rights of Indigenous Peoples— don.plett@sen.parl.gc.ca.
