SCUGOG: The Port Perry United Church will host an exceptional concert this Sunday, Nov. 9, in honour of the nation’s troops on Remembrance Day.
Beginning at 3 p.m., the show will feature performances by many local performers and musical groups.
According to Tim Griffen, who is helping to organize the show, “The Remembrance Day Tribute is something we try to do as often as we can, it’s important for us to bring the community together and honour the men and women who fought for our freedom.”
The Port Perry United Church’s Senior and Junior Choirs will be joined on-stage by the Port Perry Children’s Choir, and local performers Cathy Pavlik-Griffen and Hayden Kerry.
The Port Perry #41 Army Cadets will act as honour guard for the show, and will provide a special performance by their Pipe and Drums Band.
Tickets will be available at the door, in exchange for a goodwill offering, which will be split between the P.P.U.C. Building Fund, and the #41 Port Perry Cadets - the P.P.U.C. plans to put their share of the money towards a new roof over the rear of the building, which is located at 294 Queen St., at the corner of Simcoe St.
Each group will perform a few songs each, varying from war songs to poems and dramatic readings - for a total concert length of two hours.
