Season Twenty Six began in October, 2016, with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra directed by Anne Manson, featuring Dame Evelyn Glennie, world premier solo percussionist.
Daniel Taylor then directed the University of Toronto’s Schola Cantorum and the Theatre of Early Music in January.
The Winter’s Eve Trio followed up in March with Sharlene Wallace, Joseph Macerollo and George Koller.
The series concludes in May with 3 Choirs: Voces Animae, Aslan Boys Choir, and St. Jude’s Choir, directed by John Laing, Tom Bell and Simon Walker.
For 25 years, St. Jude’s Celebration of the Arts has presented first-class musical performances in the warm and intimate setting of St. Jude’s Church with the help of generous patrons and sponsors. Concerts over the years, starting in 1991, have been varied and always exceptional.
Celebration of the Arts adds a special element to the vibrant musical scene of Oakville with artists whose excellence is perfectly suited to the exceptional setting of the 130-year old church, widely known not only for its beauty, but for its very fine acoustics.
