Our annual Building Bridges Among Faith Traditions concert on January 29, 2017 was a huge success. Here are some of the musical (and dance) highlights:
Our annual concert is coming up on January 29, 2017 – and in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, it’s going to be free (donations welcome)! It’s at 2:30 at the Royal Alberta Museum’s theatre (the old location – 12845 102 Avenue). We’ll still be having our silent auction and excellent cultural musical entertainment. Here’s the Facebook event – be sure to invite your friends! We’ll be posting more information as we get closer to the date, so please keep checking back!
On Sunday February 10 we held our third annual multifaith concert featuring music, dance and chants from different traditions around the world. Our 2013 volunteer awards, nicknamed IFFY’s by Mayor Mandel, were given to Sofia Yaqub and Rabbi David Kunin. Popular young singer/songwriter Sean Sonego was the Master of Ceremonies, other entertainment was provided by the Balada Romanian Dance Ensemble, the Prince Charles Guitar & Fiddle Group, Nepalese Folk Dancers and the Willan Chorale. The stirring sound of the conch shell being blown opened the proceedings, Buddhist Compassion Chants raised us to an awakened consciousness,and prayers from the Eckankar and Baha’i traditions were included. Prizes were given to three young winners in our art contest.
The silent auction was also very lively, and we thank everyone whose attendance, advertisements, donations of items and sponsorships in honour of our award recipients, all added up to make this our most successful fund raiser yet.
