Our annual Remembrance Day Concert also quickly became a tradition.  In 2006 we also were fortunate to have many guest musicians, Wesley Warren, Organ, Bertrand Doucet, Djembe, the Harmonia Brass Quintet, and the Newfoundland Style Band "The Fumbling Fingers!"

Songs of War and Peace

Our first Remembrance Day Concert, "Songs of War and Peace" struck a chord that influenced us to continue to perform concerts on, or around, Remembrance Day.  We were joined for the first time by renowned organist Wesley Warren, and for this concert the very capable Choir of St. Barnabas Apostle and Martyr, and young trumpeter Alex Wenzowski
