A little weird to just see that statement on a post, however that is what the concert I am singing in on June 10 is called. It is a concert with my old choir – the Richard Eaton Singers and it is called ‘UK Calling” for a very good reason, the choir will be going to the UK in July, 2017.
We will be flying to Edinburgh on July 6 and will be on the coaches and in the churches and such until July 18, where most of the participants will fly back to Canada.
We should have around 6 concerts. Here is the program as we will be singing on June 10:
- Healey Willan – Lord our Governour (with organ)
- Stephanie Martin – Ave verum corpus, O salutaris hostia
- Ruth Watson Henderson – Magnificat (with organ)
