Monday, October 20th at 7:30pm will see the second annual Alex Clark Memorial Concert take place at St Paul's Cathedral.
The 2013 concert raised over $2000 to endow a music award at Medway High School in Alex's name. This award was created to honour the memory of a much loved former Music Teacher from Medway High School who, during his 17 years at Medway, created a huge band and vocal program that was known around the province.
Alex served as Music Consultant for the Elgin County Board of Education for 14 years, and as organist and choir director at Metropolitan United Church, London for 32 years. In his retirement he was Associate Organist at St Paul's for 12 years and frequently returned as guest organist.
This concert presents a wonderfully wide range of repertoire and the forces will combine for an exciting concert finale. It will feature the Medway High School Concert Choir and Madrigal Singers, our Cathedral Choir, Medway High School Band with Michael Bloss at the organ and Debbie Grigg on piano.
Admission is free but donations will be taken during the concert towards the fund supporting the annual Alex Clark Music Award at Medway High School - a fitting way to remember a wonderful musician, organist, choir leader and teacher who inspired and challenged those with whom he worked.
We invite you to study the Bible with us. Bible Study runs Thursdays 2 p.m. in the Guild Room led by the Reverend Ruth Ferrier. Continuing with the study of the Acts of the Apostles which was begun last spring, we will look at the historical background of the reading and discuss its spiritual implications for us today. Please join us for study, interesting conversation and refreshments.
Next Sunday, October 19th, the Cathedral Choir will be travelling to St. Paul's Church, Port Dover to sing Choral Evensong at 5pm. We invite members of our cathedral congregation to enjoy a Sunday afternoon drive to join us!
