Listening for Lent

At this time of year, many of you are observing the season of Lent, a time that has often been part of Da Camera’s seasonal programming.  Most recently, Da Camera had the great pleasure of joining Pro Coro Canada in a performance of Bruckner’s Mass in e minor at Pro Coro’s 2019 edition of “Good Friday at the Winspear.”  In 2018, Da Camera offered a Lenten program at Holy Trinity United Church with works by Poulenc, Marc Sirett, and others. 

This year, of course, we are not performing a concert during Lent, but are enjoying visiting the music of past Da Camera recordings as we look back on the history of our choir and think ahead to our 60th anniversary coming up in the 2021-2022 season.

As we reflect on the season of Lent, please enjoy this splendid recording of Louis Vierne’s Messe Solennelle in c# minor, from a 1995 album recorded under the direction of Dr. Mel Unger, with Bruce Wheatcroft at the organ.

Salisbury Greenhouse Gift Card Fundraiser

Spring has arrived and our gift card fundraiser is in full swing! We have placed our first order and will be placing another order toward the end of April. Our final order will be placed in mid-May so folks will have their gift cards in advance of the May long weekend when we’ll all be out in our gardens!

Remember, you can purchase gift cards in denominations of $25, $50, $100 and $250. They do not expire and can be used year-round for bedding plants, baskets, garden tools, soil and compost, shrubs and trees, perennials, all items in Salisbury’s amazing gift shop including home décor, furniture, clothing, and jewelry and much, much more. The gift cards are not eligible for landscaping services.

Place your gift card order through info@dacamerasingers.ca A member of the choir will contact you to confirm that your order has been received and to obtain a mailing address. As an extra convenience, Salisbury Greenhouse can mail the gift cards directly to you!

This is a great opportunity for us to earn some funds for our choir! We all love beautiful gardens – yes? The more gift cards we sell, the more the choir will benefit. We thank you for your interest in our fundraising efforts and look forward to your participation!  Happy Spring!
