ANZAC Day, 2009 in Belgium

ANZAC Day commemorations in Belgium will be held on Saturday 25 April 2009 in Mesen (Messines) and Ieper (Ypres) in West Flanders, Belgium.

You can find out more about events over on the New Zealand Embassy website.

The Flanders 1917 website also has information. Martin writes: Carleen Ebbs, a young award-winning New Zealand lyric coloratura soprano, will sing at the ANZAC Day services in Flanders this year.

She will sing at the Dawn Service at Buttes New British Cemetery, Polygon Wood organised by Zonnebeke, the official New Zealand ANZAC Day service at the New Zealand Memorial Messines, and at the combined New Zealand - Australian service at the Menin Gate in Ypres.

Carleen completed a Masters of Vocal Studies with Distinction at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London after obtaining a Masters of Music at Victoria University of Wellington.
