The Petawawa Public Library hosted members of the Pembroke Symphony Orchestra and the Canadian Military Wives Choirs Petawawa on Dec. 1 during Family Story Time; music included excerpts from the Opera Hansel and Gretel, a Schubert Symphony and some carols in both French and English. Liz Pombiere with the library’s Children and Teen Services also read the story of Hansel and Gretel to those in attendance. The event was to promote both the various activities that will be held at the Library this December as well as the PSO’s annual Christmas Special concert slated for Dec. 15 at Pembroke’s Festival Hall. The concert will also feature the Canadian Military Wives Choirs Petawawa as well as Schubert Symphony No. 6 “Little C Major”, Coleridge-Taylor Christmas Overture, a selection of seasonal music and a carol sing-along.
