We have some very exciting news! Paul Mitchell, the President of the Local Musicians’ Union has offered us 100% sponsorship for 4 additional concerts to occur between January and April 2023. Since the 2 Universities and St. Andrews also offer free concerts during the week, we decided to offer these 4 concerts on Sunday afternoons from 2:00 – 3:00. The union stipulates that the concerts be free to the public, feature only union members, be one hour in length and are livestreamed across Canada and the U.S. We plan to offer home made pie, coffee, and tea for refreshments. Details will be available soon on the church’s website under EVENTS so stay tuned!
At our last concert on November 29th, the Renaissance School of the Arts’ Flute Choir under the direction of Wendy Wagler, presented a wonderful variety of music; from the Ukrainian “Carol of the Bells” to a medley from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite and finishing with a medley of Christmas favourites to an audience of 154.
