A Winter Walk helps makes a world of difference

Talented musicians from Central Alberta have come together using their gifts to help make a lasting difference in the lives of children in Africa

Talented musicians from Central Alberta have come together using their gifts to help make a lasting difference in the lives of children in Africa.

Collaborating with A Better World, an organization based out of Lacombe, the Rosedale Valley Strings has put out a CD to help give love and hope to the children of Kenya.

The CD, A Winter Walk, is a beautiful classical ensemble of various instruments that make for a professional and attractive sound.

The musicians play with confidence and each song has its own flavour. From the Vanguard Overture to Scottish Mist, the CD has something for everyone to enjoy.

The Rosedale Valley Strings was founded in 2002 by violinist Naomi Delafield. The group on the CD consists of seven first violinists, six second violinists, six viola, five cellists, one person on bass and vocals by Debbie Zepick.

The Rosedale Valley Strings performs around Alberta in various communities, and church and school events around the province.

The CD sales go to the Ian Castleman Orphanage in Kenya to help improve the lives of the children there.

The Ian Castleman Orphanage was founded after Australian Ian Castleman visited Kenya in 2002. Recognizing a great need for a home among Kenyan children, Castleman began helping abandoned babies, mentally and physically disabled children and those who had HIV/AIDS as well.

Presently the Ian Castleman Orphanage is home to more than 115 children with many of them requiring special care and attention.
