Congratulations, Cherilyn!

A big congratulations to this year’s Silver Tray winner, Cherilyn Yan, who won the Young-Ja Park Memorial Piano Competition at the London Kiwanis Music Festival last evening.  This award carries a $1000 prize, and Cherilyn was the only high school student competing among post-secondary pianists for this prize. Congratulations, Cherilyn! We are so proud that you got your start in the Chatham Kiwanis Music Festival so many years ago!

Bus Excursion – RENT

Tuesday, June 6 – Stratford Festival $240

Rent – Set in Manhattan in the 1990s and inspired by Puccini’s opera La Bohème, this rock musical by Jonathan Larson follows a group of young East Village artists, performers and philosophers as they struggle through the hardships of poverty, societal discord and the AIDS epidemic in the search for life, love and art. With a song list that includes the iconic “Seasons of Love,” Rent tells a story as relevant today as when it took Broadway by storm more than 25 years ago.

Trip Includes: Great Canadian Holiday coach from Chatham departing at 9:45 a.m. travelling directly to the Queens’ Inn for a buffet lunch, 2:00 p.m. matinee with A+ seats at the Festival Theatre, returning to Chatham around 7:45 with comfort stop at OnRoute service centre.
