Peace River Regional District Electoral Areas ‘B’ and ‘C’ will contribute $5,000 towards the North Peace Community Choir performance at Carnegie Hall, New York City.
The Regional District made the announcement Friday of the donation. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for many of the choirs members”, said Electoral Area Director Karen Goodings “we need to continue to support the arts and showcase the talent in the Peace Region.”
“The arts are fundamental in our communities”, said Electoral Area Director Brad Sperling “they inspire us— fostering creativity.”
The City of Fort St. John also donated to the group after originally turning them down. This week Council decided to donate $1,000.
The North Peace Community Choir will be performing Handel’s Messiah along with choirs from all over the world in November.
