Syperek painting of James MacPherson

 

Everything is set for the pastoral Airs concert at St. Ninian’s cathedral this Saturday, July 7th at 8:00 p.m. The concert is being dedicated to the memory of long time organist and choir director, James MacPherson who passed away November 8, 2017. Members of the MacPherson family will be on hand to listen to wonderful music and to unveil the Anna Syperek painting commissioned by James before his death. (Shown above).

I have been attending rehearsals for several of the performers and the St.Ninian’s Senior Choir. I can assure you that people will be more than pleased with the depth of the talent that has been lined up by the organizing committee. There are many familiar faces and some that you might not know but they are all accomplished musicians.

Tickets are still available at 5 to $1.00 and MacKinnon Pharmasave as well as the St.Ninian Parish office. If you are coming from out of town, you can order your tickets on line by going to the Antigonish Highland Games website (https://www.antigonishhighlandgames.ca/ ) and clicking on tickets. Tickets are $20.

All of the proceeds of the concert will go towards art restoration at the cathedral. If you want to see firsthand what is being done, check out this short video: http://www.saintninian.ca/history/artrestore.mp4

Please share this if you would.

Have a great Highland Games weekend.

And…. Stay cool!
