1000 Voices for Peace: Fellowship concert at Hoboken

Antwerpen ontmoet Canada3

1000 Voices for Peace is the fellowship of 22 Belgian choirs and 17 choirs from all over the world, from countries which were involved in the Great War. Together they make up 1,000 voices that seek to carry a clear message of peace. 1000 Voices for Peace is the Flanders Festival Brussels’ contribution to the Great War commemorations.

The Don Bosco Choir subscribes to this ardent plea for peace and welcomes the Hart House Chorus from Canada. On 6 November 2014, they will perform a best-of from their repertoire during a fellow concert at the Church of the Holy Family (Hoboken).
