My Message

As a descendant of Mennonite refugees who came to Canada nearly a century ago, I feel a responsibility to help new refugees in Canada as they find new homes and communities here. So on October 2nd, I'll be participating in the Ride for Refuge project in support of Reception House Waterloo Region (https://receptionhouse.ca/), a local charity that helps government-assisted refugees in the area. Please consider donating to our cause.

The three-year programming project of the DaCapo Chamber Choir, the Road to Refuge, was to have concluded in May 2020 with the final concert in that series.  That concert was, of course, cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our “Road” was left incomplete. Happily, though, we now have the opportunity to move towards the conclusion of our project in a different way.

While our commitment as an ensemble is to the idea that the Arts themselves (music in our case) can make a difference in creating a more empathetic world than we have at the moment, we now have another way. By participating in the RIDE, we are able to move toward the completion of our three-year project by helping to fund a charity that is bringing hope and refuge to those who are in desperate need of both. We invite you to support DaCapo singers and friends in this fundraising ride.  Help DaCapo to make this Ride for Refuge another strong expression of our commitment to supporting the Road to Refuge that many are walking. #dcRideForRefuge #ride21
