Announcements round up

ChurchHere’s an assortment of announcements from my In Box…

December 10th at 4pm Rosedale Presbyterian there’s a fundraiser for the church.  The program is called Respite and Dream and will include Santoliquido songs, Tosti and Verdi songs, French and English songs, Brahms, Strauss, some excerpts from Rosenkavalier and some Xmas stuff.  Rachel Andrist will be at the piano with Sara Schabas, Danielle MacMillen, Jessica Scarlato, Jonelle Sills, Nicole Percifield and Jocelyn Fralick singing.  Not sure about ticketing yet but take a cushion.

November 14th is the annual fundraiser for St. Mike’s ICU in memory of Elizabeth Krehm.  It’s at 7.30pm at Christ Church Deer Park.  On the program this year is A Prayer for Elizabeth by Canadian composer Jean Coulthard alongside the Canzona Chamber Players Orchestra under the baton of Kingston Symphony music director Evan Mitchell. Yosuke Kawasaki, concert master of The National Arts Centre Orchestra, joins Canzona Chamber players as concert master. Soprano Rachel Krehm rounds out the first half with Mahler’s beloved Rückert Lieder. The concert concludes with Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6, also known as the Pathétique.  Admission is by tax deductible donation, all of which goes to the hospital.  Early donations, allowing bypass of the line, may be made on the St. Michael’s Hospital Elizabeth Krehm Memorial Page
