Georgetown Bach Chorale to perform St. Elias Church benefit concert, Saturday, June 21, 7:30 pm

Georgetown Bach Chorale in front of St. Elias Church last year.

On Saturday June 21, at 7:30 p.m. at St. George’s Anglican Church, the Georgetown Bach Chorale will present a benefit concert to aid in the rebuilding of the Ukrainian Church of St. Elias the Prophet.
On April 5, fire ravaged this unique spiritual monument, taking with it glorious icons imported from the Ukraine and breathtaking hand-painted art work which adorned the dome and walls of this sacred space.
The Georgetown Bach Chorale sang many times at St. Elias, and the choir considered it to be one of the most exciting yet intimate venues in which they have performed.
The members of the choir, its Board of Directors, Artistic Director Ron Greidanus and valued patrons, are committed to seeing the structure rebuilt and the spiritual family of St. Elias restored to our community.
We invite you to join us to help make it happen. All proceeds from this performance will go directly to the rebuilding fund of this beautiful church.
The program will largely step out of the traditional GBC repertoire, and will instead feature more mainstream works, (even Simon and Garfunkel!) as well as a few classical favourites. In addition to choral music, instrumentalists Roxolana and Karl Towes, members of St. Elias Church, will be highlighted in works for cello, violin and piano.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or in advance at Foodstuffs or Pat’s Prime Cuts and Deli in Georgetown, and at the Holland Shop in Acton.  Additional donations of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt.  Please join us to share in our gift of music and show your support.
