Friday August 6th, Kingston Musicians Union co-hosted with St James Anglican Church, Kingston’s first live concert. This concert series has been made possible by the sponsorship from the Music Performance Trust Fund. The idea for the concert series has been in the works since July 2020 when the Local was looking for venues to host the streamed concerts that they initialized and were fully funded by MPTF, however the church was unavailable for use so streaming was exclusively performed at the Royal Theatre in Gananque.
This current series, doors opened to the public for a noon hour concert that featured Spencer Evans and his son Oscar. Stringent Covid 19 protocols were in place to ensure that both the audience and performers had a safe place to enjoy this live concert and with limited seating the Local provided a polished stream of the performance. The series continues for the next seven weeks with a variety of performances from Jazz, Classical, and concept art forms. Tickets are available from Eventbrite stjameskingston.ca/tickets
