On Thursday November 8 all of the students in Grade 8 and 9 performed Voices from the Armistice, an Opera in honour of Remembrance Day, written entirely by the students.
The Opera was based on real letters written by young Canadian men and women who fought in the First World War. Students were tasked with writing the songs and stories based on letters found on the Canadian Letters and Images Project website where one can find transcripts and original scans of thousands of letters sent from Canadian soldiers caught up in the Great War.
This was a great deal of work undertaken with the help of Evie and Kat from Vancouver Opera. Thanks to all those who worked so hard and thanks also to those who came and supported our show.
