The battle at Vimy Ridge in 1917 during World War One was a defining event for Canada, considered by many contemporaries and later scholars to be a significant event in Canada’s progress to full independence from Britain. Over 70 performers are joining their talents to pay tribute to Canada’s sacrifices and achievements at Vimy Ridge and to celebrate Canada 150. Traditional and original music will blend throughout the evening ending with a grand finale not to be missed. Singers, dancers, and a concert band will join pipers and drummers to mark the 100 anniversary of the victory at Vimy.
