Hope, Help & Harmony for Haiti

On January 12, 2010, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, just 15 kilometres southwest of its capital, Port-au-Prince. More than 250,000 people were killed and one million left homeless.
The Orangeville Chorus was pleased to participate in organizing and performing in a highly-successful fundraising concert for the children suffering the devastating effects of this earthquake. All proceeds from the concert - $12,714.37 - were donated to UNICEF.
