An annual spring tradition for many, is back again this year, on May 25th at 7:30 p.m., at the Port Perry United Church.
The Church has a long history of community musical presentations. The talented Choirs of Port Perry United are proud to present “Thanks for the Memories”, a musical reflection of the events of the past 20 years, under the skilful leadership of Music Director, Joan Bretney.
It all started in 1999, as a means to raise money for the Grand Piano, which now graces the platform in the sanctuary. The event was so well received it has become an annual event and is in its 20th year of entertaining audiences of all ages. The Grand Event is presented and enjoyed by all ages!
The sanctuary will, once again, be filled with a wonderful variety of music, sure to please.
Tickets are $15.00 per adult, $5.00 for children under 12. They can be purchased at the Church office, on sale now. If any tickets remain, they can be purchased at the door, the evening of the show.
For more information please contact the office, at 905-985-2801, or go to www.portperryunited.com
