Happy 150th Canada! In 2017 our country will celebrate its 150th birthday. There will be fireworks, birthday cakes, festivals, air shows, and there will be Music! The Richmond Orchestra and Chorus is proud to present Canada 150: Canada’s Music from Coast to Coast. How do we start to choose music for this exciting concert? A good place to start would be to look to our First Nations people whose musical heritage predates the birth of Canada by more than a thousand years. And we shouldn’t forget the first settlers from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland who gave us our Celtic music traditions.
