Sunday, February 24th., 2019 Join CHORUS HAMILTON for an enchanting performance of Franz Joseph Hayden’s THE CREATION on Sunday, February 24, 2019, at 3:00 p.m. in Central Presbyterian Church, 165 Charlton Avenue West, Hamilton. Soloists will be Vania Chan, soprano, Anthony Varahidis, tenor, Kyle Guglielmo, baritone, accompanied by the Concert Sinfonia, with Erika Reiman at the piano, all under the baton of David Holler.
    After a performance in 1799, a Viennese journalist, Joseph Richter, wrote: “...I never left a theater more contented, and all night I dreamed of the Creation of the World.” This most benevolent and life-affirming music is a fitting performance as Chorus Hamilton celebrates 50 years of choral music-making in the City of Hamilton. “Sing the Lord, ye voices all....through all creation....”
    Tickets are $30.00 and can be purchased through the website at www.chorushamilton.ca, by e-mail at chorushamilton@yahoo.ca, or by contacting Joan at 905-318-9381. To view a poster for this concert select The Creation.

Sunday, March 31, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The CPC Book Club at Central Presbyterian Church, 165 Charlton Ave. W., in Hamilton will meet to review and discuss We Own the Sky by Luke Allnutt, under the leadership of Valerie Smith. We Own the Sky is a heart-wrenching story about the boundless love of parent and child—of loss and finding hope against all odds. The author’s note to the reader at the start of the book tells us what his motivation was to write the book: “I wrote it because I thought I was going to die.” Having been diagnosed with a serious illness, on a journey of healing of his own, he wrote this story of healing and hope reflected in the journey of the characters in the story, Rob, the father, his wife Anna, and their beautiful son, Jack. Everyone is most welcome to join the group in the Allan Room (enter at 165 Charlton Avenue West). Refreshments are included. Please refer to the CPC Book Club program for future CPC Book Club meetings.



Preferred formatting for submissions to the Events Page of PresbyKirk.
The preferred formatting follows the pattern of most of the entries on this page. They open with the day and date, include the identity of the hosting congregation or organization, and then cite the particulars of location, time, event details, cost, registration process, website link, etc. This information can be submitted in a Word document or in the body of an e-mail. Additional supporting documents may include posters, registration forms or brochures. The ideal file format for supporting documents is .pdf but we can work with whatever you supply. Announcements that follow this protocol can be posted almost immediately. If you simply provide .pdf posters etc. then the process of extracting and reformatting the information is substantially more time consuming and may slightly delay the posting of the event.
