The Christian Church in general, and the United Church, in particular, sing its spirituality ...we come close to transcendence through song.
So why not join us: June in Toronto? Live music? Theological and musicological reflection? College Street United Church is hosting us for the weekend.
Part of the EvenSong project, enlisting various jazz musicians this conference is oriented to those who love music, sing their hearts out, direct choirs and / or sing in choruses. A hands-on approach to workshops, 3 evenings of live performances…it promises to be a spectacular way to end the church year, do pre-planning for the new year to come, meet friends and restore and recreate our faith.
Sign up for only the 3 evening concerts for $50 or $20 each night
Registration for the two days of workshops and 3 evening performances is $99 for everything: groups of 5 and more: $80 each (plus one free ticket for those who need the concession)
Registration includes Saturday breakfast and nutrition breaks. A book display and CD sales desk will be present through the entire weekend.
