For many years, Holy Trinity Church, Gore (Lakefield) has held a series of summer concerts. The line-up provides a mix of both French and English entertainers and includes a variety of music genres from classical to bluegrass.
Holy Trinity is devoted to being a positive contributor in the community. The proceeds from these concerts support several community outreach programs. A Food Basket Project serves over 35 families. A School Supplies Project provides over $100 per child to nearly 40 children at the beginning of each scholastic year. A Prayer Shawl Ministry distributes hand knitted shawls to over a hundred recipients who are grateful to be remembered in difficult times as well as at celebratory moments like the birth of a child. Additionally, a free Christmas meal is offered to anyone who comes through the doors, whether or not they have attended the Christmas Eve Service. Last year over 100 meals were served.
April 7: MG3 – THE MONTREAL GUITAR TRIO – will open the 2018 Holy Trinity Church Concert Season, as they present their latest album “DANZAS”.
Considered by the CBC as one of Canada’s hottest guitar ensembles, MG3 has rapidly become a force for renewal and interaction among the diverse musical genres.
The trio includes Gore’s very own Marc Morin as well as Sébastien Dufour and Glenn Lévesque. Together for 20 years now, with their virtuosity, rigor, and creativity along with their captivating stage presence – where humor and banter with the audience intermingle – they have captivated audiences all over the world.
“… Their debut in Germany was one of the most unforgettable events in the festival’s history, both artistically and programme-wise. […] The audience applauded and didn’t quieten down until the event organiser had promised to engage the Montreal Guitar Trio again next year… “
– Klauss Ross, Bergsträßer Anzeiger, Germany
This renowned group of musicians has filled the house each time they have played at Holy Trinity. MG3 is always a sell-out so reserve early.
All performances begin at 8 pm, doors open at 7:30 pm.
Tickets are $25 with reservations / $30 at the door – Call Linda @ 450-562-9620
