Louise Rose, Lt.-Gov. Point pair for performance

Lt.-Gov. Steven Point’s writings in concert, for sale

B.C.’s lieutenant-governor is singing in support of Salvation Army.

Lt. Gov. Steven Point, in collaboration with local musicians, released a CD, A Dedication to the People of British Columbia. Point gave the CD to the Salvation Army with proceeds to go to the establishment of a recovery house for young women.

The album features two songs, both with music and lyrics by the lieutenant-governor. The first track, “British Columbia” features musical arrangements by the Naden Band of Maritime Forces Pacific. The Victoria Good News Choir, led by Louise Rose, provides the vocals and the Unity Drummers and singers provide the drumming. The second track, “God Grant Me a Sign” features vocals by Point and the Victoria Good News Choir. Rose wrote the four part choral arrangement.

The season finale for the Good News Choir is an opportune time to purchase the CD on the Peninsula.

The closing concert O Canada É is a musical event filled with the music of Canadian composers. The Victoria Good News Choir will perform “God Grant Me a Sign” and “British Columbia”.

The CD will be available by donation at the O Canada É concerts.
