Singing for har­mony

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA NEWS -

Queen­stown choral groups have come to­gether for a spe­cial one-off per­for­mance to pro­mote peace and unity in the world and raise funds for chil­dren suf­fer­ing in war-torn coun­tries.

The Queen­stown Com­mu­nity Choir, Lakes Com­mu­nity Mu­sic School and Corus Chil­dren’s Choir will join choir groups across the globe as part of the Peace One Day ini­tia­tive.

Queen­stown Com­mu­nity Choir mu­si­cal di­rec­tor Emma Wilson said the Wakatipu was far re­moved from some of the world’s most vi­o­lent ar­eas, but a de­sire for peace in our lifetime was a very real is­sue for many peo­ple in Queen­stown.

‘‘We know there’ll be a lot of peo­ple in the com­mu­nity af­fected by war and un­rest and our lo­cal One Day One Choir event will pro­vide them with a chance to think about those we’ve lost,’’ she said.

‘‘It en­ables us all to feel like we’re do­ing some­thing about the is­sues in our world to­day.’’

‘‘I shall say ’zis only once’’: Allo’ Allo’ stars Chris Parvin, as cafe’ owner Rene´ Ar­tois and Deb­o­rah Lind, as Michelle Dubois, re­hearse for the Re­mark­ables The­atre Company show which will open tonight.
