Anglican Church: Choir and 'Sound Lee

anglican church: Luke's Anglican Church in Hubbards, and a day of workshops and community fellowship at the Black Cultural Centre in Cherry Brook on Friday, Aug. 3, according to The Chronicle Herald. It's a visit that's been 30 years in the making, dating back to when Toronto Mass Choir director and educator Karen Burke co-founded the ensemble with her husband Oswald in 1988, facilitated more recently by her former student Owen O'Sound Lee's arrival in Halifax to become the Nova Scotia Mass Choir's musical director. But the Toronto team of 54 singers, musicians and support isn't coming all this way just to raise the roof at one show, there's also a Thursday night performance by the choir on Aug. 2 at St. My husband and I actually travelled to Halifax six years ago, and we had lunch with the executive of the Nova Scotia Mass Choir, recalls Burke over the phone from Toronto. But with Owen coming to Halifax and becoming their director, it made this trip a little more possible, with someone there on the ground that knows all about our ministry and what we do. We talked about how nice it would be if we could get our choirs together, and since this was the first time we'd met, we were just sort of dreaming about it. ( As reported in the news.
