Canadian College of Performing Arts honors veterans through travelling Remembrance Day tribute

The Canadian College of Performing Arts honors veterans through a special Remembrance Day tribute.

This year’s performance is a mix of music and spoken word inspired by wartime letters provided by family members of the students. The work also includes a series of poetry, classics audiences are sure to recognize and new pieces written by students.

“The students put on a military tribute that was second to none,” says Don Strank, Royal Canadian Legion, Trafalgar Pro-Patria Branch 292. “If you were here on that day and did not have a tear in your eye, I suspect you’re not telling the truth.”

CCPA students will tour Victoria over the Remembrance Day long weekend performing at Berwick House and Royal Canadian Legion Trafalgar Pro Patria Branch # 292. They will perform during church services at St. Matthias Anglican Church and St. Mary the Virgin Anglican Church. This year the tour expands to Sidney where the students will present at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church’s service.
