Fundraiser to benefit the Richmond Addiction Services Society (RASS)
“Music acts like a magic key, to which the most tightly closed heart opens.” So wrote Baroness Maria Von Trapp, the matriarch of the famous family in the film The Sound of Music.
Many Richmond choirs are hoping that their music will inspire people to open their hearts and pocketbooks during Richmond Sings, a benefit concert for the Richmond Addiction Services Society (RASS) which will take place on Monday, May 2 at 7:00pm at Fraserview Church in Richmond.
RASS is dedicated to creating a healthy and safe environment for children, youth and families in our community. Addiction services are historically underfunded but early and sustained access to counselling and treatment can make a huge difference in someone’s life.
May 2 is Music Monday in Canada, which sees musicians from all across the country come together to celebrate the power of music in our community. Helping in this endeavor will be singers from 8 to 80! The participating choirs include the Richmond Chorus, the Richmond Youth Honour Choir, the Steveston London Secondary Choir, the McNair Secondary Choir, the Canada Melody Choir, Our Saviour Lutheran Church Choir, Gilmore Park United Church Choir and South Arm United Church Choir.
With this diverse group of choirs there’s sure to be music to appeal to all musical tastes! So join us on May 2 for Richmond Sings, a wonderful night of entertainment for a very worthy cause. Admission by donation.
