There is little so sublime as the freshness of an April evening. With the passing of winter, spring once again brings us promises of renewal and rebirth. Trees and flowers bloom, animals give birth, and our hearts are filled with hope, peace, and joy that life does go on.
The Cape Breton Chorale gave musical voice to these sentiments on Sunday April 15th at 7:00 p.m. at St. Andrew’s United Church on Bentinck Street in Sydney. The program of sacred and secular music was produced by Sister Rita Clare who shared the baton with Rosemary McGhee. Paula Jane Francis provided organ and piano accompaniment.
For this presentation, the Chorale had as its guests the piano duo of Katherine Fraser and Emily Hatcher, and the woodwind trio All Sorts Consort (Laurie Gorman, clarinet; Richard MacAulay, flute; and Barb Stetter, oboe)
