Hi Everyone,

For a number of years the Vancouver Cansing Choirs held a benefit concert for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank on the first Tuesday of December. In the spirit of the season, families and friends contributed generously, for a total of about $3500. Sadly, in-person singing is not currently permitted due to the COVID19 pandemic. We can't count on the special atmosphere of a live concert to open hearts and wallets. But the Food Bank still needs our help more than ever--demand is up and fundraising events challenging.

So we offer the next best thing--a short, virtual performance, "Here Comes a New Day!", looking forward to the hoped-for beginning of the end of COVID19 sometime in 2021. Seasonal singalong included. Truly, a New Day! Tuesday, December 8, 7 pm via Zoom (link at cansing.ca).

We are asking you to support the Choir's commitment to the essential work of the Food Bank by making a contribution and promoting the cause to family and friends. Please share the URL for this event,https://vfd.foodbank.bc.ca/fundraiser/cansingvirtualchoir, with people you know who love music and helping people in our community access the nutritious food they need (or by using the sharing options--Facebook, Twitter and email-- provided above). Gerda has warm memories of her own childhood in Prince George when her father suffered a prolonged illness and the food hamper from a local charity made Christmas possible for her family.

Thank you in advance for joining the Cansing Virtual Food Drive! And best wishes for this unusual holiday season and better times in 2021. We hope you enjoy the songs. Stay safe.

Gerda and Kevin.

PS You'll find more information about the choir here: http://cansing.ca/ . We've got our hearts set on getting the adult choir back to normal in September, 2021. Let us know if you're interested in joining.
