“Love In a Canoe: Canada at 150” (April 1, 2017) was such a moving and deeply rewarding concert. It was a privilege to honour our great country in this way. The choir sang so beautifully and with great heart. Our partners, Nova Craft Canoe and the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority, helped round out the message and spread it even farther throughout the community. The audience was right with us the whole way. We filled the place and had to turn people away at the door. The energy around the concert and the love of Canada was palpable throughout the evening. There was such a build-up that the audience spontaneously stood up in the middle of the last song. Many had tears in their eyes, and when we all sang “O Canada” full out with the organ and timpani as the encore, it was an experience I’ll never forget. This was our time to celebrate and we did it. We did it for Canada. It is a richly satisfying feeling—and unforgettable.
