John Barron Memorial Concert

Amabile Choirs of London, Canada will remember one of the founders of the Amabile Youth Singers this fall with the John Barron Memorial Concert, featuring the six senior Amabile Choirs. This no-charge event will be an amazing concert – the music selected by John before he passed away last spring. Maybe consider this, another event in London Cultural Days!

In memory of John, donations to the “John & Lowell Barron Amabile Fund” through London Community Foundation will be accepted.

John Barron made such an incredible impact on so many lives as a composer, arranger and philanthropist, plus through his work as an educator with the former Middlesex County Board of Education; his work as conductor of the Ontario Youth Choir; his work as a chorister with The Festival Singers and Primus: The Amabile Men’s Choir; and of course, as co-founder of the Amabile Youth Singers. His influence is felt by the entire Amabile organization. Click here for a biography of John’s life and just a small look at his influence on Canadian choral music.

Hope you can join us on September 28th to remember and celebrate an amazing man – John Barron.
