Come and join us for High Tea with Richard Turp at the Atwater Club.
When it comes to the world of voice in opera, there is no one who can match Richard Turp’s encyclopedic memory, his relaxed and friendly manner of presentation and his charming personality.
With the help of sound and visual excerpts, you will discover six young Canadians who are poised to conquer the classical music world and also enjoy a series of musical anecdotes.
Following the presentation, sandwiches, scones, pastry, tea and coffee will be served.
Atwater Club @ 2:30PM

I congratulate the members of the St. James Literary Society as they gather to celebrate its 110th anniversary. Over the years, friends have come together and bonds have been formed in social groups all over Canada. The St. James Literary Society can be proud of its many accomplishments during the past 110 years. By promoting scholarly activities, you allow your members to develop a critical mind and open up to the world. Your discussions foster true universal dialogue while promoting a greater awareness and understanding of Canada. The commitment you have shown to the group and to the community are reasons to celebrate this milestone. I wish you all the best for the future.
