On Sunday, November 27 at 3 p.m., a concert called “Darkness to Light” will feature Acquire choirs. An adult choir and a children’s choir will perform and will sing some pieces together. The Knox Bell Choir will also be performing at this concert, which is a fundraiser to bring a refugee family to the Vankleek Hill community. The concert takes place at Knox Presbyterian Church and the choirs are under the direction of Rosemary and Reg Harden. The theme for this year’s concert is “Darkness and Light” and Rosemary Harden promises that the selections will truly take the audience from “darkness” to “light.” Selections to be performed by the adult choir include “Yuletide Fires,” Gordon Lightfoot’s “Song for a Winter’s Night” and “Noël c’est l’amour,” in addition to the beautiful “Al Shlosha,” the tranquil Ubi Caritas and the uplifting, “Rise Up, Shepherd,” to name just some of the pieces you will hear at the concert. There is no admission charge, but a free-will offering will be collected to assist with the refugee family.
