I should not be allowed to copy and paste the text of previous concert announcements unsupervised.

The concert is in fact on the 21st OF NOVEMBER, not the 28th as previously announced. That’s one whole week sooner. As in, this upcoming Saturday.

Many thanks go out to Ceri and MLG for verifying the date with me. Apart from my unsupervised copying and pasting, I try to get the concert announcements out two weeks before the date to give people plenty of time, and it got away from me this time; but I probably defaulted to the usual two-weeks-from-now thing anyway. (When I find out who authorized it to be mid-November I will have sharp words with them, I tell you what.)

The correct details:

The time has come again to make plans to attend the Lakeshore Chamber Orchestra fall concert! Every fall we present an introspective and soul-uplifting concert to celebrate the season, and for your entertainment we have prepared a challenging programme that our new conductor and musical director, Stewart Grant, has titled Wien un München (Vienna and Munich).

Circle Saturday the 21st of November on your calendars. At 19h30 in the Valois United Church in Pointe-Claire (70 Belmont Ave., between King and Queen), the Lakeshore Chamber Orchestra will present the following works:

    Mozart: Ouverture Der Schauspieldirektor (The Impresario), K. 486
    Schubert: Rosamunde – incidental & ballet music
    Weber: Concerto pour clarinette no. 2 op. 7 – Allegro (soloist: Eric Braley)
    Mozart: Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) K. 620- In diesen heil’gen Hallen (soloist: John Manning)
    Beethoven: Symphony no. 8 op. 23

Admission is $10 per person; admission is free for those under 18 years of age. The concerts usually last approximately two hours, including the refreshment break. There are driving directions and public transport info on the church website, linked above. I usually encourage people who are vehicle-less to find someone who has a car and share the cost of the driver’s admission to the concert among them. It’s more fun to enjoy the evening in the company of others, after all.

This is the first concert with our official new conductor Stewart Grant. We’re really enjoying the work he’s doing with us, and judging from the reception of the Canada Day concert, audiences are enjoying it, too. Come experience our first proud formal performance with this talented and experienced conductor!

    Drat! If it had been the 28th, then we would all (minus Tallis) have been able to come. Now I’m afraid it’ll have to be just Jeff and Devon . . . but they are both looking forward to it! (Will Liam be there?) I will just have to be there in spirit this time, alas.
