Clunis

Retired Winnipeg Police Chief, Devon Clunis is speaking at our 125th Anniversary Service today. He will tell his story about growing up in Jamaica, to becoming the first black Police Chief in Canadian history and how important it is for us to work together for our communities. Join us for cake and conversation after the service in the Lecture Hall where Mr. Clunis will be selling his book.

Sarah Jo Kirsch

Our soloist today, Sarah Jo Kirsch is a soprano/vocalist currently based in Winnipeg, Canada. She continues to make waves as a soloist with local ensembles—large and small—and maintains a continuing presence at the WSO New Music Festival, Cluster New Music + Integrated Arts Festival, and Groundswell, Winnipeg’s new music concert series. Sarah surfs the gamut of musical evolution seeking the most harmonious alloys forged from text and music. More than anything, she aspires to be a worthy muse and an evocative interpreter. Westminster is so pleased to have Sarah with us today, representing our Wolseley/West Broadway community on our 125th anniversary. Thank you Sarah!
