Livestream Concert – Sept 3

The Kingston Classics Trio will be performing a concert at the Royal Theater that will be streamed using Facebook Live, Sept 3rd at 7: 00 PM.

The concert is funded by the City of Gananoque, and the Musicians Trust Fund, which is a fund set up by record companies to help fund live music, with the requirement no charge for the audience. 

The Royal Theater is trying to attract sponsorship for the concert series; if you know a business or somebody who would be interested in sponsoring this concert, the fee would be $200 which would give them advertising for the concert, and the ability of introducing us at the start. Let Katie know if you do know someone interested (legerek@queensu.ca) and I will pass it along.

Here is a recording we made at the Isabel last year put together with some or our travel photos…
