Valentine's Day: Think Outside the Chocolates Box and Give the Gift of Music Instead

We have been conditioned to think of giving chocolates and/or long stemmed red roses to loved ones on Valentine’s Day, both of which require us to dig deep into our wallets, as their prices soar during this time. And these traditional February 14th gifts amuse us, but for a fleeting time. Here is something else to consider for that special person or those special people in your life: the lasting gift of music.

Music at Trinity: Sat. Oct. 21, 2017

Ebonies in Harmony is a two clarinet-one piano trio featuring Sylvie Duchesneau (clarinet-bass clarinet) and Roxanne Léveillé (clarinet) and myself, Fabien Tousignant (piano). We invite you to experience a wonderful repertoire which blends the virtuosity and “velouté” of these instruments. We have put together a nice programme of some favorites of the classical repertoire arranged for two clarinets and piano, along with pieces written specifically for this kind of ensemble. You will have the opportunity to hear works by Mendelssohn, Ponchielli, Dvořák, some Klezmer and more.

Help Boost Donations

As one of twenty three longtime member churches of the Centretown Churches Social Action Committee, Southminster United Church provides ongoing donations of food and money to the Centretown Emergency Food Centre.

If you attend the Wednesday noon concerts at Southminster, please bring along an item of food to place in the collection boxes for the Food Centre. Each month some 900 individuals, including many families with children, benefit from a 3-day supply of food from the Centre. The volunteers who staff the Food Centre would suggest any item on the following list: canned tuna, salmon, meat and stews, canned vegetables, canned soups, canned beans, cereals, dry pasta, pasta sauce, or Kraft dinner.
