The Vancouver Welsh Men's Choir (Music Director Jonathan Quick, Pianist Karen Lee-Morlang) joins with the Delta Concert Band (Director Jim Tempest) to present our annual Remembrance Day concert at South Delta Baptist Church. Our program honours the sacrifices of so many who have paid, and continue to pay, the ultimate price in wars near and far, past and present. We also celebrate the resilience of and spirit of civilians who have endured and overcome the hardships of conflicts. The program set includes:

- Grace (a unique arrangement of the Amazing Grace text, set to the tune O Waly, Waly, by Mark Hayes)
- Peace Song
- Bring Him Home (from the musical, Les Miserables)
- Finlandia Hymn (Jean Sibelius)
- Ose Shalom (The One Who Makes Peace, based on a traditional Hebrew text)
- A medley of familiar Vera Lynn songs
- and more.
