SACKVILLE, NB A special concert, SONGS of PEACE, will be presented again this year on Monday, November 7 at 7 p.m. in Convocation Hall, Mount Allison University in Sackville. The event will feature over 200 young choristers joining together in song in the name of peace.

They will be joined by the Elliott Chorale (director Gayle Martin) from Mount Allison who will perform and then join the children in the final Massed Choir selections. Music education students and Nancy Vogan from the department of music at Mount Allison are assisting with the organization of this event which is being sponsored by Mount Allison University and the Mount Allison music department in recognition of the Year of the Veteran.
