Hilary Kilbourn Memorial Benefit
To raise money to purchase a grand piano
Toronto Island, ON. September 18, 2016 3:00-5:00PM
Toronto Island, ON – The St. Andrew-by-the-Lake Community proves time and again that great music is priceless & timeless. They believe the time has come to purchase a grand piano to enhance the vibrant music program at St. Andrew-by-the-Lake.
“We are grateful for the fine quality of sound that the architecture of St Andrew allows. Musicians comment on it and are eager to return to play within its walls. Martin Luther said, ‘Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.’ We wish to join together the beauty of space and sound at St Andrew with the fine performances of musicians and encourage people to feel the great treasures of word and music in this building.” The Reverend Michael Marshall
Along with a host of passionate musicians, donors and volunteers, a Piano Fundraising Party is to be held at the Church of St. Andrew-by-the-Lake on September 18th from 3:00 – 5:00. All proceeds will be used to acquire a new grand piano for the music program at St. Andrew-by-the-Lake.
Works of Mozart, Debussy, Gounod, and Jazz standards will be performed by Vadim Serebryany, Melissa Scott, Gilles Thibodeau, Kristin Day, Louis Lawlor, Jonathan Krehm, Rachel Krehm, Mike Milligan and Roger Sharp.
Throughout the event delicious light refreshments will be served. There will be a live auction of local art vacation retreats, unique experiences and wine from a local vintner.
