The Festival Songbook launches our new original song, Cherry Blossoms For You & Me composed by JUNO award-winning Tom Landa and Robin Layne, Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, the haunting Navajo chant Now I Walk in Beauty, and Japanese folk song Sakura Sakura in honour of Japan’s gift of cherry trees to our city in celebration of international friendship. Choir conductors are encouraged to incorporate rehearsals of this repertoire into their schedules and then come together for the one massed choir rehearsal/performance.
