Toronto for Voices of War, Dreams of Peace: The Legacy of the First World War
St. Andrew’s Church on Saturday, October 4 at 7:30 p.m.
Foreign correspondent Brian Stewart, classical music expert Rick Phillips and friends will be featured in an evening of talks, dramatic readings, music and a visual show about the First World War and our community.
Voices of War: Dreams of Peace: The Legacy of the First World War will recall an important period in our history – from 1914 “Toronto the Good” to the wartime stories of St. Andrew’s fallen soldiers and their families – and examine the legacy of “the war to end all wars” for 2014.
Period music including It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, Keep the Home Fires Burning, and Nimrod from Elgar’s Enigma Variations will be performed on the church’s splendid Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano and Karl Wilhelm organ.
A reception will follow the event.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students. Advance tickets are available atwww.standrewstoronto.org or at the door (cash or credit card). For more info, call (416)-593-5600, ext 231.
