Coetzee sisters release Journey of Remembrance for Remembrance Day
Brooks Bulletin

Former Brooks sisters Mari, 21, Ine, 18, and Luka Coetzee, 12, performed a cello instrumental for Remembrance Day which they posted on social media.
Journey of Remembrance is a “unique film in which the power of music and nature combine to create a token of commemoration in honour of Remembrance Day (Canada), Veteran’s Day (U.S.) for the lives that have been lost due to injustice and war,” states a preamble to their film.
The video was shot after the girls carried their cellos on their backs up Mount Lady MacDonald near Canmore in September.
Eldest sister Mari told media the piece, Requiem for Three Cellos and Piano by David Popper, was first played by the sisters in their homeland of South Africa the year they lost their grandfathers.
“Since then we’ve always wanted to bring it out and have it as a remembrance for everyone who has meant something to Canada, to the world,” she said.
The cellists are well known in the Brooks community for their incredible talent, having performed at many Brooks area events and music festivals over the past few years.
Dr. Marteen Coetzee continues to practice medicine in Brooks.
