“Sounds of Strabane” is hosting an unforgettable event filled with song and music on Sun., May 28 at 7 p.m.

“The evening will be an amazing opportunity to bring music out and speak to everyone as music is a universal language,” said Strabane United Church volunteer Lorraine Hadaller.

Musician Marvin Munshaw, who is the church’s organist, has assembled an experienced group to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, noted Hadaller.

“Marvin has such a tremendous background within music and he really pulled together all these people performing together in celebration of Canada 150,” she said.

The concert will feature a guest performance by singer-songwriter and pianist Ken Munshaw, Bob Reeves on woodwinds, vocalist Ria Dowling, bass player Sean Browne and percussionist Paul Dickenson.

Additional contributors to this year’s concert are saxophonist Brett Dickenson, guitarist Randy Dowling and Rev. Bill Wheeler.

“It will be a great opportunity to share all the music from Canada’s 150-year history,” Hadaller said.

Guests will be invited to participate in a group singalong with Marvin and the choir that will cover songs from the First World War era to the present.

Giving the community the true experience for the evening of what Canada is all about, said Hadaller. “Were really excited about the whole event,” she said.
