KINTORE — The Thames Centre Community Choir will present a Remembrance Day concert at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 11 at Chalmers United Church in Kintore.
This event, which is part of the 100th anniversary celebrations of the Kintore church and commemorates the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War and 75th anniversary of the start of the Second World War, will feature familiar songs of the wartime eras, as well as settings of traditional Remembrance Day songs such as “Flanders Fields.”
The choir will also remember former member and friend Dennis Rumble, who passed away this past May, by donating all proceeds to a Memorial Award fund at the music faculty at Western University. This fund will generate an annual scholarship for deserving music students.
