Chapters’ Book Signing

Elaine A. Small will be at Chapters signing copies of her award winning book, "Priests in the Attic"--recognized as a Winner by THE WORD GUILD. In the words of the Judge: “Out of all the books I read for this competition, this is probably the only one where I came away from the experience excited to have discovered a voice. So many writers are focused on the literal truth. I feel this writer has moved herself to go deeper into herself. Finally I see beauty, imagery and metaphor…. So, well done." K.M. Word Guild Awards.

Carmina Burana Concert

Who would have suspected that bad behaviour would lead to wonderful music? Orff’s immortal Carmina Burana returns to the Kingston stage, accompanied by our friends in the Queen’s University Choral Ensemble. This theme continues with Wolf-Ferrari’s delightful overture to an opera centred around a woman concealing her smoking habit, and the Smyth selection represents an achingly beautiful aria, interrupted by raucous pub crawlers. Along with the Kingston Symphony, this concert will also feature soprano Elizabeth Polese, tenor Christopher Mayell, and baritone Jean-Philippe McClish.
