Moravian Music Festival

The Community of Makkovik is hosting a Moravian Church Music Festival in the next few days.

Joan Andersen is the Chair-person of the Moravian Church in Newfoundland and Labrador.

She says four students from Happy Valley, five from Hopedale and four from Nain will take part in different workshops.

Chris Guindon of Nain, Natalie Jacque and Andrea Andersen of Makkovik, Nancy Tuglavina of Hopedale and Rev. Glenna Tasedan of Happy Valley will be the workshop coordinators.

Guindon will teach brass band instruments, and Jacque will instruct students on the violin.

Taesdan will teach how to play the chimes and Tuglavina will be in charge of the boys and girls choir.

Andrea Andersen will demonstrate drum dancing techniques.

Andersen would like to thank Rev. Brigitte Schloss, Aurora Energy and Nunatsiavut Recreation for their donations to make this festival a reality.
