‘Joyful’ music on tap for fundraiser

Stella Maris Concert Choir performance to benefit hospice society

Music to uplift the heart and soul will be offered this Sunday (Oct. 6) at 3 p.m. at Victory Memorial Gardens (14831 28 Ave.) when the Stella Maris Concert Choir performs a special concert to benefit the White Rock and South Surrey Hospice Society.

The award-winning, internationally-touring choir, based at Good Shepherd Church in South Surrey’s Star of the Sea Catholic Parish, will sing a repertoire that director Trudi Stammer said is “joyful and moving at the same time – and includes some beautiful gospel pieces.”

In addition to enjoying the music, the audience will be able to meet the choir for post-concert refreshments, included in the ticket price, along with a raffle for a gift basket.

Stammer said the Stella Maris mission statement  “includes using our music to provide opportunities for spiritual, physical and financial outreach to others – and the choir is doing just that in our own parish and in the greater community.”

All funds raised will go to the White Rock and South Surrey Hospice Society.

Tickets are $15 ($10 for seniors and students) and can be obtained from Victory Memorial Gardens at 604-536-6522 or Good Shepherd Church at 604-531-5937.
