There is a lot of fine music around #ldnont this weekend . . . & here is word of ace voices raised for a good cause, the London Food  Bank. Western Don Wright music faculty student Melissa  Lalonde sent along the following details.

In the spring, Lalonde, a mezzo, helped lead the way in organizing a multi-singer fundraiser for the battle against cancer at another London church.

So find your way to St. James Westminster church in the Wortley Village hood & enjoy.

 Hi James,
Thank you again for your call! Here is the info for our concert . . . . We are music students and pianists from the Don Wright Faculty of Music. We enjoyed our spring concert for the Canadian Cancer Society so much that we decided to put our talents to good use in another benefit concert. This time we welcome a special guest, Jackalyn Short, who is a professor of voice in the Faculty of Music and has had an incredible international vocal career. Our concert consists of art songs and arias dating from the 18th to the 20th century, and is sure to entertain! Since 100% of the proceeds go to the London Food Bank, we are closing with a choral setting of the title “If Music be the Food of Love” by David Dickau. Everyone is welcome to come and share this evening of music with us in support of this fantastic organization which comes to the aid of so many people in our community. We are a group who loves to work together, sharing our passion for the betterment of our community.
