Erskine Presbyterian Church
343 Bronson Ave
Mon. January 28, 2007
Time: 7:30 pm


With Christmas over and the New Year upon us it's a good time to think about sorting through our collections of music, written and recorded, to identify things that we no longer use or will never use. Perhaps we have multiple copies of scores or recordings? Perhaps we have things that we know we will never have the chance to play or learn? Or perhaps you have recently recorded a CD or written an anthem and want to promote it to other members? Whatever you might be able to find or offer, members are invited to a social evening at Erskine Presbyterian Church 343 Bronson Avenue, Ottawa to exchange or sell scores and recordings etc. and see or play the organ for the last time. Erskine Presbyterian Church closed in October 2007 after 132 years of Christian witness but we have made special arrangements to host this social evening at the church and to celebrate the organ and to wish it well as it is offered for sale.

For more details, contact Ian MacKay, Program Convenor.
