“Food & Faith: Mennonites Farming Locally and Globally”
Mennonite sociologist Winfield Fretz called farming the ‘sacred vocation.’ Even though fewer and fewer Mennonites are involved in it, we are all dependent on, if not blessed by it. We used to talk together about farming and faith a lot more when more of us were farmers. Maybe it’s time to talk again.
Bass Daniel Lichti, tenor James McLean, and pianist Anna Ronai are well known to local audiences.
Ralf Buschmeyer celebrates his return to Ontario with friends new and old. Michael Wood is a Stratford vibes player Ralf worked with while a faculty member of Ambrose University Calgary.

Clark Johnston is an old school chum of Ralf’s, both having graduated from Hamilton’s Mohawk College Applied Music program in the 90’s.
The concert will be a mix of original material, Jazz Standards with new arrangements and classic Jazz-Vibes repertoire.
