A modern major fundraiser!

Posted on Nov 2, 2014 in News


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.
