WMCT volunteers

“Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep these courageous couriers…”

Tomorrow is concert day, and that means program booklets, the banner, and lots more. It’s also Launch Day for the 122nd Season, 2019-2020, and that means brochures, subscription forms, and lots more. Diane, Jerri and Julia show they have the right stuff!

Volunteers honoured at the AGM Sept. 28

The WMCT had the best Annual Meeting in town!

Half an hour of positive reports from the treasurer and president, then a mini-recital by Scholarship and Fellowship winners, a free lunch, and a floral “Thank you” to volunteers who plan and staff Music in the Afternoon, serve on awards, finance, and fundraising, committees, and document the history of the WMCT. For more photos, taken at the Women’s Art Association, see the WMCT Facebook page.

Jean Edwards retires at 90

 

Canadian soprano and long time WMCT member Jean Edwards said farewell to the stage recently in a fund-raising concert at the Heliconian Hall. For her surprise finale Jean dressed as a ballerina complete with tutu sang the piece made famous by the British comedienne Beatrice Lillie, “There are Fairies at the Bottom of Our Garden”.
