Halifax Explosion 100th anniversary event - The Lost Memorial | St. Paul's Halifax | Wednesday, 06. December 2017
St. Paul’s church was one of the few Halifax churches to fully withstand the Halifax explosion - and records suggest it may have been the only church able to organize a service the next day. While the specific events of that service are a mystery - its was surely a somber affair - with church pews surrounded by coffins - with more than 300 church families dead, displaced or injured - and with the church hall transformed into a makeshift hospital and relief station. In the “Lost Memorial” we re-create what words might have been spoken in this tragic setting. What songs would have been sung? What might the church have looked like? Most important - where did the people of Halifax even begin to look for hope? Featuring: Featuring: David Christensen, Karis Tees (and the St. Paul’s Junior Choir), El Jones, Ben Stone, Ian Bent (St. Paul’s Musician in Residence), the St. Paul’s Senior Choir, and other special guests.
