Musical fun for the whole family
Saturday, March 2, 2019 3:00 p.m.
St. Paul's Anglican Church,
20 Young Road, Kanata

Join us for a mid-winter break: Solos and small groups from the choir members, as well as choral music for kids of all ages. Sing-along songs and lots of family-friendly musical activities to break up the winter doldrums.

The McLeish Five are our special guests. They have individually had extensive experience with vocal music, from choirs and coffee houses, to musicals and general sing-alongs. In the past few years they have been geographically gravitating back to the Ottawa area where they started and are able to spend more time singing and composing music together. They will perform as the special guests of the the Kanata Choral Society in the March concert and will trot out three of their own compositions. The concert relates to “Families” and two of the songs they will be singing they wrote as entertainment for their grandkids. As an extension to the family theme, they will be also honouring in song their parents, both long passed, who brought music and family affections into the household.
