Villanova College Chaplain, Fr Peter Wieneke, at the QCMF Mass on Sunday, commented that music is a way of uniting people and challenged the students to keep spreading their musical stories and energy, through their respected ensembles, to bring about more peace and love in the world. A special mention must go to Kaitlin Rainbow and Grace Cornell who represented LHC beautifully at the Mass.
Congratulations to all our musicians on a very successful festival. Thank you to Ros Brown for all of the behind-the-scenes work as well as the leadership team, Rachel O’Brien and all the LHC supporters who added to the wonderful atmosphere throughout the festival.
