Easter Weekend 2016 brought together various NAC choral choirs, along with the instrumental talents of accompanying groups and specialty talents from across Southwestern Ontario, Hamilton and the Toronto Areas.
Approximately 400 concert goers attended the Good Friday concert held in the Kitchener Central church. Among the songs that told of the Passiontide story of Jesus’ sufferings, the Soul Purpose Kids choir issued a playful challenge, echoing versus, to the delight of the congregation.
The concert held in Port Credit on Saturday March 26th, saw approximately 220 in attendance and included performances from the French-African choir.
In both concerts, the young soloist for Pie Jesu was outstanding with her delivery…capturing her audience till final note passed her lips. The oboist for Gabriel’s Oboe was flawless and the sound filled the church and auditorium – floating and elegant.
The two Soul Purpose hosted concerts, also accepted donations for the Terry Fox Foundation in which approximately $1,800 in funds were raised.
