Non-profit organizations like SONG survive and flourish when part of a community. It is a wonderful juxtaposition of ideas when one notes that SONG provides community for young musicians as well as existing within a community of supportive individuals, corporations, and other organizations.
Our sixth season has begun with wonderful partnerships, both new and renewed, to help strengthen our program and our community. Please take note of these upcoming opportunities to support SONG, local business, and the wider local arts community.
- Furby House Books is hosting a book launch with all proceeds going to SONG. Peter Goddard has authored a new book on legendary Canadian pianist Glenn Gould entitled, “The Great Gould”. He will be in conversation about the book with Furby House owner, Terry Foord, at The Loft Cinema (201 Division St. in Cobourg) on Saturday, October 20th at 2:00pm. Tickets are available at both Furby House Books in Port Hope and at Ten Thousand Villages in Cobourg.
- Musician Michael Pepa has become an Honourary Ambassador of SONG and will promote the program at all his Les Amis concerts this coming season. As well, he will make it possible for SONG children to attend some of the concerts to help them hear and see Chamber Ensembles live. The first concert will be held on Sunday, October 7th at 3:00pm at The Loft Cinema. View the entire season offerings at: Les Amis Concert Series
- In both of the above events, you’ll note that The Loft Cinema is becoming an indirect support of SONG as the venue for these opportunities. Keep abreast of what’s happening at Cinema (which is also a live music venue) at their website: The Loft Cinema
- Rhino’s Roadhouse Restaurant in Bewdley is, once again, donating a portion of food sales to SONG. Dine at Rhino’s during the month of October to help support SONG. If you plan to dine out this month, consider Rhino’s and watch the colours change on the shores of Rice Lake!
