I'm very excited to report that tonight Chorus Niagara will be presenting, for its inaugural performance, "A Mighty Cry" by Niagara Region composer Michael Kositsky. It's great music, all about the War of 1812, General Brock, the Battle of Queenston Heights, Lundy's Lane, Drummond, Laura Secord...good stuff. We received a grant from the Federal Government to commission this work, and it's very relevant to our local history here in Niagara. The government just finished the bicentennial celebrations of the war a couple of months ago, so it's timely, too.

The video below is an excerpt from the second work we're also performing this evening, "The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace" by Karl Jenkins.

I hope everyone leaves the concert this evening with a fresh appreciation for what our men & women in uniform have done (and continue to do) to secure and maintain our freedom.
