Our fundraising concert for Savoy and the CHEO Foundation is in rehearsal right now, and is planned for Saturday, November 22nd, at 7:30 pm, at St. Stephen’s Presbyterian, 579 Parkdale Avenue (south of the Queensway).

Tickets can be purchased from any concert participant, or at the door, and are $20 for adults, $15 for children under 12. Tickets can be reserved by calling (613) 727-6321, or by sending an email to info@ottawasavoysociety.org

We need some volunteers for front of house activities: a head of FOH, people to sell tickets, take tickets, hand out programmes, assist the audience members who need it, and set up and run a small snacks counter at the interval. Respond to this email if you can help with these tasks.

A bit of a sweetener for those of you who are so inclined: we are having a contest. The best re-write of the “Modern Major General” song from Pirates of Penzance will be performed at our Pirates to be held in 2015! Get those entries in to info@ottawasavoysociety.org by December 31, 2014. Anyone think they’re better than Tom Lehrer?

Attached is a poster for the fundraiser – please feel free to print out some of them and put them up wherever you can.
