Canadian composer Glen Buhr’s 1989 composition Akasha (Sky) starts off this unique program followed by Jean Sebelius’ Pelleas and Melisande. After intermission the beautiful sound of John Rutter’s Requiem will pay tribute to those who have lost their lives fighting for our country. Performing with us will be a select mixed choir prepared by Lyn Vernon and soprano soloist Dr. Veera Khare-Asher.
Prince George born and raised Veera Khare-Asher began her vocal training under Kay Lim whom she continues to hold as her mentor today. Veera holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Voice Performance from the University of Nevada.
