Each year CASS holds a special fundraising concert to support the work of CASS in South Sudan. The concert is held the first Sunday of November at Wesley Knox United Church in London. This concert always features a number of choirs and musical groups from around London and area, including London’s own Denise Pelley. Also featured is a special guest speaker, and representatives from CASS who will give updates on current projects.
The 2011 annual concert featured the usual lineup of performers and musicians from various local groups. One of the special additions this year was a selection of songs from the recently produced show “Abuk – A Musical”, featuring the talents of Saidat, Denise Pelley, and Breanna Nkiwane as Abuk. Glen Pearson also spoke on the recent work of CASS and our plans to begin work on the secondary school very soon.
Please see below for some pictures from this year’s show, as well as a video created by Glen documenting some of the pre-show activities. Click here to see pictures from the 2010 and earlier concerts.
