Recent announcements

There have been a few announcements over the last week or two.  First up is a fund raiser for the music and social outreach programmes at St. Andrew by the Lake.  St. Andrew by the Lake is the Anglican church that serves Toronto Islands and as everyone in Toronto knows this has been a tough summer for island dwellers and, among other things it’s messed up the usual summer music program at St. Andrew.  The fundraiser is at Christ Church Deer Park on Thursday 24th August at 7.30pm.  The concert features the Canzona Chamber Players with Evan Mitchell conducting and Rachel Krehm as soprano soloist in performances of Mozart, Gounod, Charpentier and Brahms.  More details and tickets at http://www.standrewbythelake.com
