High Noon Choir with Cathy Baker and Dick Jackson 

We welcome you to the High Noon Choir, a place for singers who are looking for a daytime outlet for their voices through the summer. We invite all who like to sing in harmony to join us for lively and joyous sessions of song. Drop-in admission is on a sliding scale from $10 down to $8 for seniors, students and the unwaged. If finances would be a barrier to singing with us, please reach us to discuss.

Our repertoire is eclectic, including (but not limited to) world music, spirituals, African freedom songs, various rounds and chants, as well as some contemporary music. No previous singing experience is necessary. You do not need to know how to read music, as most of our songs are learned by ear. Our first-ever Summer Season is led by Cathy and Dick, the new directors of the Gettin’ Higher Choir. The High Noon Choir Fall Season will continue with Siobhan Robinsong on September 25.

For more information, contact Cathy Baker at or 250-857-9984.

Diemm: Ethereal chamber folk that borders on the shamanic.

Crystalline vocals, lyrics like arrows. Layers of harp, acoustic bass and tasty percussion. Singer-Songwriter-Harper-Poet Diemm plays for that one note, that one resonant chord that opens a cascade of ‘yes’ inside you.

Diemm’s Ten Thousand Miracles Album Release Tour is a celebration of Diemm’s debut Chamber Folk album, featuring critically acclaimed folk-roots artist Oliver Swain on acoustic bass, and world percussionist Ben Johnson – who are also featured on the new album. They’re putting on thirteen concerts in churches and halls across Diemm’s home province of BC. The rafters will ring at Church of Truth James Bay Sept 22nd 7pm! Tickets $15 at Niagara Market (James Bay) and OR $18 at the door. #harpediemm

Community Grief Ritual, facilitated by Shauna Janz, MA (

During this 3-hour experience, we will explore the soulful necessity of being in touch with our pain, whether it be grief for personal loss or the cultural wounding so prevalent in our times (racism, colonialism, environmental destruction etc). Within the ritual container of community, we will tend our grief as a way to fuel our continued vitality. All forms of grief is welcomed here.

The afternoon will consist of Council practice, personal reflection through writing, small group sharing, song, and a collective grief ritual around the community altar. The structure of this offering draws from the wisdom and lessons learned from ritual practitioners Daniel Foor, Francis Weller and Malidoma Some.

More info:

Cost: $40. A few sliding scale spaces open, please inquire.

To register, please email:
RSVP required as spaces are limited, and confirmed upon receipt of email transfer.
