“Musical excellence is rewarding, exciting and what we ultimately aim to achieve, but we also value the process. The friendships that have been built, the skills we learn from one another week after week, the joy, the tears and the laughter... it is because of all these experiences that we excel.”

On Saturday, March 23, 2013, at the historic Basilica of St. John the Baptist, Lady Cove Women’s Choir and Newman Sound Men’s Choir will present PAX!, an evening of mystical sacred choral music. Come and be transported from the fast pace of reality by such works as Ubi Caritas by contemporary Norwegian composer, Ola Gjeilo, O Salutaris Hostia by Latvian composer Eriks Esenvalds, and Moses Hogan’s powerful spiritual, Elijah Rock.
This year, PAX! will also include performances by incredible young singers. The Clarenville High School Boys Choir, under the direction of Ann Lundrigan, the St. Bonaventure's College Camerata, under the direction of Maria Conkey, and the Junior and Senior Children’s Choirs of Shallaway will fill your heart with reflections of peace through their eyes.
What Does PEACE Mean to You?
In the weeks preceding PAX!, Lady Cove and Newman Sound will launch a social media campaign to explore how we find peace in our daily lives. We will be posting regularly and we encourage you to share your ideas with us too! We will be giving away a pair of tickets each Friday during the month of March (8th, 15th & 22nd) to be drawn from those individuals who share their ideas via Facebook, Twitter or email.
