Lanny Pollet and Denis Donnelly will perform their 12th annual New Year’s Day Music for Meditation at First Metropolitan United Church.

Denis Donnelly and Lanny Pollet will perform their 12th annual New Year’s Day Music for Meditation on Sunday, Jan. 1 from 2 to 4 p.m. at First Metropolitan United Church.

This event debuted on Millennium New Year’s Day and has become a popular finale to Victoria’s Christmas holiday season.

Award-winning musicians, Donnelly and Pollet now have two very successful CD recordings based on music offered at “Music for Meditation”.

Their lovely, reflective music-making, while rooted in Celtic tradition, features music based on folk melodies from around the world – presented in the beautifully peaceful, candle-lit setting of First Metropolitan United Church. Guests are invited to drop by – for two minutes or two hours, and to help themselves to refreshments available throughout the afternoon.

Suggested Donations of $10 are welcome. First Metropolitan United Church, Quadra at Balmoral. Call 250-388-5188 or visit
