Song of the Phoenix Easter concert

The IDEAL Society (Institute for the Development of Education, Arts and Leisure) is offering a concert, The Song of the Phoenix, by the Vera Choir on Palm Sunday.

Everyone is invited to join the Vera Choir on April 13 for an afternoon of sacred songs from around the world on the Easter weekend. In addition, excerpts from the art and poetry book The Song of the Phoenix, written by Natacha Kolesar and illustrated by her daughter Slavka Kolesar will be presented.

This concert is also in memory of Natacha Kolesar who initiated the IDEAL project of bringing families and individuals together to create a holistic environment for people of all ages.

Kolesar is described by some who knew her as a visionary and leader who left a legacy of participants who practice a way of life that combines education, wellness and the arts in an environment of natural beauty. Her vision was dedicated to sharing with our community the richness of collective living.

Admission to the concert is free, but donations are welcome. The concert will be held on April 13 from 4 to 6 pm at the Knox United Church 201, Second Avenue, Fernie.
