Over 500 people attended this year's concert, and donated non-perishable food items for the food basket collection at the door. This year our concert featured the international group, Rosheen. Founded in 1997 by Lynn Vallières, this is a group from Quebec City that has a passion for Celtic music. It was the opening act for Celine Dion during Quebec City’s 400th anniversary. This group of singers and musicians celebrated our special anniversary with their repertoire of Christmas music. Along with Rosheen theinternational ensemble Buzz Brass also performed. This five-piece brass group was founded in 2002 by Sylvain Lapointe. They have performed in the United States and in Europe and have won the Opus Prize in 2007 for Production of the Year. This 20th anniversary celebration would not have been complete without a performance from Bernadette Short’s Celtic Grace. These award-winning dancers delighted our audiences with their intricate footwork and precision choreography.
