Portia White Gala Concert A Success!
On November 25, 2016, the eleventh annual Porta White Gala Concert took place at Faith Tabernacle in Halifax. A sell-out crowd enjoyed a wide variety of music (including seasonal favourites) presented by the Dalhousie Health Professions Chorale, the Vocal Chords, the Testostertones, guest soloist Allison Angelo (two-time Portia White award winner) and the Sackville Concert Band. Concert goers were part of the show -- they sang along with some holiday favourites!
This concert honours Portia White, a renowned Nova Scotia vocalist whose talent inspired the creation of the Nova Scotia Talent Trust. Concert proceeds support the NSTT Portia White award that assists a young Nova Scotia voice student. The Trust is celebrating its 72nd anniversary of “supporting tomorrow’s artists today”.
