One of the most poignant places our Choir will visit, and perform, during their tour is the Canadian War Cemetery. On this site remain 1,393 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War (of whom 1,355 are Canadians).

In May, as Holland marks its war remembrance, twenty-five Victoria Children’s Choir students will join Dutch children to place flowers among the Holten graves. We will also sing to honour the soldiers contribution to freedom.

Those gathered at this event is anticipated to exceed 5,000, and include local and international dignitaries, relatives of the fallen, and people who wish to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Liberation.
