On May 7, 2016, at the Markham Missionary Church, 5438 Major Mackenzie Drive E, we celebrated the many faces of love with songs including For the Beauty of the Earth by John Rutter, The Ground by Ola Gjeilo, Five Hebrew Love Songs by Eric Whitacre, O Salutaris Hostia by Eriks Esenvalds as well as classic love songs such as The Glory of Love, Embraceable You and a medley from West Side Story. Guest artists were Oleksandra Fedyshyn, violin, and sopranos Mira Solovianenko and Anna Bateman.
Our December 2016 Christmas celebration featured John Rutter’s Gloria. Along with this superb piece of 20th century music, we sang contemporary carols such as Unto Us a Son is Born, by Trevor Manor, O Lux Beatissima by Howard Helvey, and Amy Grant’s Breath of Heaven, as well as traditional seasonal treasures by Sir David Willcocks. Our guest artists were Mira Solovianenko, soprano, Joan Andrews, flute and The Albury Gardens Brass Quintet. We performed this concert at Markham Missionary Church.
