Community helps make shows a success


Sir: The Performing Arts Committee of St. Andrew’s United Church in Chatham wishes to thank all those who helped make the 2014-15 Saturdays at 7 at St. Andrew’s concerts such a success. Approximately 2,500 attended the six concerts in the series that included a variety of programs, including a 180-voice mass choir, spirituals, pop/folk music, organ, Broadway and Christmas music.

A special thank you must go to the choristers and instrumentalists who presented a variety of musical renditions with the competent leadership, talented accompaniment and solo performances of Devon Hansen, Director of Music at St. Andrew’s. Several Chatham-Kent musicians joined St. Andrew’s Chancel Choir for various concerts. Soloists travelled distances from Metro Detroit, Toronto, New York City, Waterloo and Windsor to name only a few. St. Andrew’s is especially pleased to provide a forum for amazing and young musicians to perform and share their talents.

Appreciation is especially expressed to the media, including The Chatham Voice, for promoting the events by making announcements and/or publishing informative articles and photos. Chatham-Kent is indeed fortunate to have media that positively supports events in this community to help make Chatham-Kent a great place to live.

We would also like to thank the many businesses in the community who help promote the concerts by placing our posters in their windows or on their community announcement bulletin boards.

Saturdays at 7 at St. Andrew’s will continue in 2015-16 with six more concerts. In addition the Windsor Symphony Orchestra will perform two concerts in the St. Andrew’s sanctuary. All are welcome to attend to enjoy delightful music programs.
