Music program enriches students through sacred music
Uwe Lieflander shares his enthusiasm for sacred music with youngsters in the Sparrows program at Immaculate Conception parish in Port Perry, Ont. Jean Ko Din / Catholic Register (CCN).
Maestro Uwe Lieflander always begins a Sparrows choir practice with a warmup for the brain. A crowd of 80 children from ages three to 14 years old are busy chitchatting. But the room falls silent once Lieflander begins to play the first few bars of Mozart's "Requiem." For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
