Trio’s concert supports Haitian school effort

Drei Stimmen hopes to raise $2,000 from Nanaimo shows

A unique musical group from Germany, Drei Stimmen (Three Voices) are coming to Nanaimo for the first time to perform their eclectic style of music and raise money for charity.

The group hopes to raise more than $2,000 from two Nanaimo concerts, with all funds going to a school construction project for the German organization Rebuilding Elementary Schools in Haiti.

The German trio raised more than $700,000 for various charities with more than 50 sold-out concerts.

“I wanted to have Drei Stimmen perform in Nanaimo because they have such a powerful style of music,” said Reinhard Schneider, president of Rebuilding Schools in Haiti. “The trio is dedicated to raising money for this charity to rebuild schools in Haiti and they have volunteered part of their Canadian summer vacation to perform in Nanaimo.”

Rebuilding Elementary Schools in Haiti has already raised funds to rebuild a school for 600 students and are in the process of rebuilding another. The project is managed voluntarily by German organizations and the money raised from the Drei Stimmen’s Nanaimo concerts goes 100 per cent to the project.

Drei Stimmen blends the sounds of Ingi Fett, Tom Pfeiffer and Heinz-Joeg Ebert whose passionate, outstanding performances have been delighting audiences for 10 years.

The trio is vacationing in Canada and wanted to share their enchanted music with a Canadian audience.

Drei Stimmen’s music is complemented by classical guitar, jazz and big band sounds all guided by the theme of love.

The group performs Saturday and Sunday (July 23-24) at St. Andrew’s United Church. Tickets $15 at the door.

Doors open at 6 p.m., with the two-hour concert beginning at 7 p.m.
