Spotted two neat-o events in my mailbox, and wish I had the time to attend. Murphy’s law dictates that one always finds the coolest stuff scheduled on dates you’ve already got booked. I present them here for your perusal:
- The Toronto Consort, November 9th & 10th. The city’s leading Mediæval and Renaissance chamber ensemble presents The Queen, an arrangement of pieces by John Dowland, Edward Johnson, Thomas Morley, Francis Pilkington and Thomas Tallis. Also featuring Karen Woolridge as Queen Elizabeth I, interpreting some of the monarch’s notable letters and speeches. Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church, 427 Bloor St. West.
- Royal Military Colleges Club of Canada 2007 Leadership Dinner, November 23rd, 2007. Black-tie soiree in military mess dinner format, so break out the full mess kit. General Rick Hillier, CDS, is the keynote speaker. Major Danny McLeod will receive the Air Commodore Leonard Birchall Award for his superior leadership in war and peace. Proceeds from the $200-per-plate dinner will go to the Sapper Mike McTeague Wounded Warrior fund, and also to a bursary which allows Reserve Force members to attend RMC. Fairmont Royal York, 100 Front St. West.
