We were delighted to have a packed house for the Suzie LeBlanc in the Round concert on Sunday afternoon. The doors opened just after 2pm, and soon we had a church full of enthusiastic music-lovers, buzzing with anticipation!
All in all we had over 200 in the audience, bringing in $5000 to jumpstart our the renovation of the music room space!
Many thanks to the musicians — the Saint George’s Parish Choir, the Saint George’s Consort (Celeste Jankowski, Kirsty Money, Hilary Brown, Max Casper), guest artist David Greenberg, the fabulous Suzie LeBlanc, and of course the driving force behind this whole concert, our own Music Director Garth MacPhee, who played harpsichord, directed the choir, and sang (sometimes all at the same time!)
Special thanks also to those who helped make this happen behind the scenes — Dr Kathleen Jaeger, Janet Ross and Steven Burns, the Rev’d Debra Burleson, Henri Gauci, the Friends of Saint George’s Society, Cheryl Bell, Elisabeth Kleven, Davinia Wright, Matthew Stones, Jacquie de Mestral, Marilyn Melanson, and many others who helped us tell everyone about this exciting concert!
