Sing for Syrians concert Dec. 15 in Halifax

Singing for Syrians, on Saturday, Dec. 15 at St. Matthew’s Church, is a sequel to a concert held two years ago by Halifax Voice Studio students, to raise funds for a Syrian family in the midst of immigrating to Halifax.

Now the family is living in Halifax, and a second concert will draw on the spirit of the season to assist them with settling into their new Canadian life. Led by singer and instructor Janice Jackson, the ensemble will present a selection of Christmas songs, musical theatre and jazz standards as well as some Arabic music to suit the occasion.

The matinée concert starts at 3 p.m. at the Barrington Street church, and donations will be accepted gladly at the door.
