Cantiamo exporing roots

Canada is a collaboration of cultures, a tapestry of histories.

Canada is a collaboration of cultures, a tapestry of histories.

As a country it sifted through the explorers, the fighters, the lost and the helpless and it  reached out to those people looking for something more and planted them into our history.

This Sunday at 7 p.m., Cantiamo will explore those roots.

Cantiamo Chamber Ensemble is an inspiring group of young musical talent that is pushing into its 13th year, lead by Jennifer Riley and Shelly Brown.

Together, they have chosen to launch their season with an entirely Canadian program, ranging from songs that tell of a sailor who longs for nothing more than to come back from sea to the comforts of home, to the toe-tapping sounds of a locomotive, even songs that delve into our French Canadian history.

Join this group of young singers as they explore their roots through music and what it means to be Canadian this Sunday evening at 7 p.m. at the United Mennonite Church in Black Creek.

Tickets  are $10 and may be found at Video’s and More in Comox or at the door.
