There was a performance by the Millar College of the Bible choir over noon on Nov. 24. Music teacher and guitarist Michael Lyngstad presented introductory workshops for guitar and ukulele on Nov. 26. Canada Music Week takes place annually during the third week of November to raise public awareness about the importance of Canadian music and to provide an opportunity to Canadian musicians to perform their work. Canada Music Week was initiated in 1960 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers' Association.
