ACWC/AFCC commemorates Rebekah Cummings (1980 – 2019)

Rebekah Cummings

ACWC/AFCC commemorates Rebekah Cummings (1980 – 2019), our beloved friend and ACWC composer who passed away on March 23 after being diagnosed with cancer in December.  Her indelible spirit and imaginative, unquenchable zest for life revealed itself in her superb, sensuous, moving, and deeply grounded compositions which touched all who heard them.  Rebekah delighted in “creativity in its various forms, and love(d) to cultivate it in others! Concepts of life, growth, process and transformation tend to be at the heart of [her] creative expression in both art and music, along with themes related to [her] Bulgarian heritage.”  As well, she was a gifted visual artist with visionary, playful, compelling canvases.  Her Celebration of Life took place Saturday, April 13 at Meadowlands Fellowship Christian Reformed Church, Ancaster, ON.  And on the same day, April 13 at 3 pm , ON, the Mercer Duo (Rachel Mercer and Akemi Mercer-Niewoehner) performed a concert of violin and cello duos by six female Canadian composers, with three world premieres, including Rebekah’s “Our Strength, Our Song,” at First Unitarian, Hamilton, ON.  Listen to her hauntingly beautiful music, view her art, and read about her compositions
