St. George’s Cathedral Summer Concerts conclude on Thursday August 29 from 12:15pm to 12:50pm with the Colioris Ensemble from Montreal performing “Be Free!”, a program of music by Haydn, Bloch, and Shostakovich. Admission is free, with a freewill offering collected. The Cathedral is at 270 King St. E. (at Johnson) in Kingston. Call 613-548-4617 or visit www.stgeorgescathedral.ca or www.facebook.com/StGeorgeConcerts. Join us for a mid-day musical interlude!

Each of the three composers wished to be free from oppression or the constraints of tradition. Haydn was inspired by his interactions with Gypsy musicians, Bloch implemented non-thematic melodies into “Three Nocturnes” with an ethereal quasi-impressionist style, and Shostakovich created a directly programmatic image into the “Piano Trio No.2”, as a result of being horrified by stories of Nazi SS guards. The Colioris Ensemble features Jung Tsai (violin), Rebecca Morton (cello), and Tomoko Inui (piano).
