Our Home, a Canadian Travelogue

The Victoria Arion Male Choir, under the direction of Alan Whitmore, closed their first season with a tribute to our country – Canada. In June 2019, the choir presented Our Home, a Canadian Travelogue, an exciting musical sampling of the diverse heritage, geography, and lifestyles that make up our great country.

Dr. Harris Loewen visits VAMC – March 18, 2019

Dr. Harris Loewen, retired professor of Choral Music of Brock University, and his wife Ruth, attended a VAMC choir rehearsal on March 18. Dr. Loewen spent some very productive time rehearsing “Peaceful Niagara”, one of his many choral compositions and a piece to be included in the VAMC’s June 2 concert, “Our Home: A Canadian travelogue…”. It was a wonderful opportunity for the choir to gain insights into both choral singing and this particular piece from one of Canada’s finest choral conductors.
