Enjoy an evening of beautiful music from the stage with two of Kingston’s favourite performers, with a special appearance by the gentlemen of the Kingston Capital Men’s Chorus. Featuring Maryanne Wainman, soprano, Tim Stiff, tenor, and pianist Scott Davey. This concert is a benefit for Sistema Kingston, an intensive after school program that focuses on positive social change through the pursuit of musical excellence. Queen’s Community Music, in partnership with The Joe Chithalen Memorial Musical Instrument Lending Library (Joe’s M.I.L.L.) and Limestone District School Board, launched Sistema Kingston in the Fall of 2015. Through free, group centered music instruction, Sistema Kingston emphasizes inclusivity and teamwork, builds personal persistence, and fosters creativity and personal responsibility in all of its activities. Using the Venezuelan El Sistema as its model, Sistema Kingston aspires to bring social change to inspire children to reach their full potential as students, musicians and citizens. http://www.sistemakingston.ca
