As part of their 175th anniversary celebrations, St. Andrew’s United Church in Pakenham invites you to Sounds of the Season, a concert of Christmas and seasonal music featuring The fiVe Woodwind Quintet on Sunday November 22 at 7:00 p.m.
The musicians are all present or former members of Ottawa’s Divertimento Orchestra. They have been entertaining audiences throughout the region for a dozen years.
Their performance at St. Andrew’s in 2011 brought rave reviews: “enormous talents”, “shared their knowledge and talents on a personal level. A rare opportunity to hear some splendid musicians .” “I come from a background where classical music was not what we listened to but … the fiVe have made me appreciate the beautiful music they create.”
Asked why they chose to return to St. Andrew’s, their oboist, David Sale described the sanctuary as “a wonderfully intimate space with marvellous acoustics, a hidden gem … and they also really know how to provide great desserts!”
Admission will be by free-will donation. Refreshments will follow the concert.
