Speaking of Baha’i choral music—a Baha’i-inspired choir from Winnipeg, the Abha Voices (see a RealPlayer clip care of the CBC), will be performing during the official Canada Day festivities in Ottawa this year. For those who don’t know, Ottawa’s Canada Day celebrations are annually beamed via national television across the country. That’s therefore a big thing!
