You are encouraged to bring a lantern and candles as well as photos if you wish to create a memorial for a loved one. Also, at 7:11 pm, you can be witness to the Premiere of “11” which will be a site-specific performance of Mark Haney’s composition commemorating 11 individuals who served in the World Wars. Cued by a solo trumpet, every 11 minutes brass instruments placed around the central area of the cemetery will tell their 11 individual stories in concert, their sounds harmonizing over the landscape through which visitors are walking. Inspired by the stories of WWII veterans who settled in Renfrew Heights. The piece celebrates an often forgotten part of Vancouver’s history. The event takes place rain or shine.  To learn more about All Souls Night and events that continue to November 2nd visit a Night For All Souls.
