A Feast of Hallelujahs!
January 29, 2018
February 11 marks the last Sunday before Lent and thus also the last Sunday of "Hallelujah" before Easter Sunday. Join us as we say "Goodbye to Hallelujah" - with all of our favourite Alleluia or Hallelujah hymns and a special performance of Leonard Cohen's popular song as the postlude (featuring soprano Alison Gresik).
Alison learned to play recorder in Grade 4 just like everyone else, and she's been playing ever since. Her amateur credits include an ensemble concert at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario, a solo performance at her sister's wedding, and a Royal Conservatory of Music exam. She has also played a lot of folk tunes and Taizé music at churches past and present. Alison loves the recorder because it is a simple, versatile, portable instrument with a lovely tone (just don't call it a flute). When she's not playing the recorder, you will find Alison singing with the St. Helen's Anglican choir and performing with the new Vancouver music company, Players & Singers.
