This image of the Celtic Cross on Grosse Île will be one of many by artist Margaret Forrest that will be projected on the backdrop during the performance of Grosse Île : Une histoire chorale / A Choral Story.

In the summertime, my wife (Mary Moseychuck, a proud Cape Bretoner) and I often travel back “home” to Cape Breton. While there, we frolic on Kelly’s Mountain or around the Bras d’Or Lakes and swim and sunbathe at a secluded sandy beach near the Fortress of Louisbourg.
