Choral trib­ute

Albany Advertiser - - AGENDA - Jes­sica Cuth­bert

A stun­ning per­for­mance will com­mem­o­rate the cen­te­nary of Armistice next month.

Among the glow­ing stems of Field of Light: Av­enue of Hon­our, the choral per­for­mance, By Other Eyes: The Armistice Day Choral Project, will pay re­spect to those who served Aus­tralia in World War I and ad­vo­cate for peace in the world and our com­mu­ni­ties.

The per­for­mance, to be held on Novem­ber 11 at 7 and 9pm, is pro­duced by the City of Al­bany’s Van­cou­ver Arts Cen­tre with Matt Ward and the Vo­cal Per­for­mance Ini­tia­tive and sup­ported by West Aus­tralian Opera.

Creative di­rec­tor Matt Ward said the choral project was an op­por­tu­nity for him to work along­side the Great South­ern com­mu­nity to com­mem­o­rate the cen­te­nary of Armistice Day.

“Singing plays such an im­por­tant role in my life and I’m al­ways thrilled when I get to share the joy of mu­sic and singing with oth­ers,” he said.

“I’m think­ing a lot about the theme of re­mem­brance and what it’s like to be grate­ful for the sac­ri­fices of the past and would ab­so­lutely love to ex­tend an in­vi­ta­tion to any­one to join us on the Armistice Day Choral Project.” If you are in­ter­ested in be­ing part of the project, con­tact the Van­cou­ver Arts Cen­tre on 6820 3740 or email arts@al­bany.wa.gov.au. Tick­ets and broad­cast in­for­ma­tion will be avail­able soon at www.an­za­cal­bany.com.au.
