Attention Tintern Knitters and Crocheters - Communication this week with the teacher at the Tusarvik School in Naujaat, Nunavut has identified further need.

Chorus Niagara - Pursuit of Peace, Saturday November 5, 2022 at 7:30pm. Compelling and powerful music calls us to remember our shared humanity and work for peace. Chorus Niagara celebrates the 150th Anniversary of Ralph Vaughan Williams with his epic anti-war statement Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant Us Peace) along with Canadian composer John Estacio’s deeply moving plea for tolerance and unity, The Houses Stand Not Far Apart. Beginning in darkness and rising toward the light, these powerful works are a cry for universal harmony.
