Our Messiah singers are back from an extraordinary experience in New York City. We were part of a 467 member chorus for DCI-NY's 2018 production of 'The Messiah-Refreshed.' We sang from the Carnegie Hall stage and from the balconies, astounding ourselves and our audience. The production received a glowing review from New York Concert Reviews and left us all in a state of awe. Check out the gallery page for photos and links to the event.
We leave for New York City this week. Performers will congregate for first rehearsal with the DCINY staff on Friday. Performance on Sunday, November 25.
Our fall concert is on November 9 at Hants East Rural High School in Milford. We will once again honour our local veterans in this Remembrance event. Our special guests include piper, Gillian Blaney and the Enfield District School choir.
Veterans please contact your local legion for information about receiving your free ticket to the concert.
More information coming soon!
