Concert to rekindle fond memories and raise funds for voice scholarship

  • the famous duet Domʼe lʼepais from “Lakme” sung by soprano Samantha Borgal and mezzo-soprano Amelia Daigle
  • solo performances by mother-daughter songstresses Katherine and Grace Quinsey
  • Pie Jesu from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Requiem” sung by soprano Lesley Andrew and boy soprano Will Ebere
  • a special performance by the Mac Sisters

to name just a few of the treats in store for the audience Friday. Find concert details and program on the event website.
