Jouney to Kapasseni 1999

A film about the 1998/9 beginning of the Gettin' Higher Choir's involvement with the people of Mozambique via the Kapasseni Project. This video shows the reasons for initial involvement and the difference it made for the villagers of Kapasseni.  That involvement has since evolved into a wider involvement in that country via our support of the Caia Connection.  With our support the Kapasseni Project has been so successful in helping the people of Kapasseni to turn their lives around after 30 years of civil war in Mozambique that in recent years we have been expanding our support to other projects and communities in the area.

Return to Kapasseni 2011

It documents the success of the of the partnership between many citizens of Victoria, B.C., and those of Kapasseni in the recovery of the village from the devastation of a 30 year civil war.  It also shows the broadening of the partnership to encompass other communities in the Kapasseni area with the Kapasseni project as a successful working model.

Aura Arindam, GHC Thursday Soprano, took this casual video at the Gorge Canada Day Picnic SWAT

Denis's new style of conducting for Lay Back In The Arms Of Love at the May 31st Monday practice.  It's a bit slow to load for such a short video but worth the wait.  Especially for the prospective choral conductors among us looking for methods to make conducting more laid back.
