On Saturday March 18, the Kingston Centre of the Royal Canadian College of Organists will be hosting an organ concert at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church.
This “Community of Organists” event begins at 3:30 pm and will include performances by students who are recipients of organ scholarships offered each year by the Kingston Centre, as well as established organists who play in local churches.
Although admission is free, donations going toward the organ scholarship program will be accepted.
St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church – located at 130 Clergy Street – was erected in 1822, becoming the first stone church in the city.
In 1839, recognizing a need for an educational facility in Kingston to provide training for Presbyterian ministers, a motion was passed at St. Andrew’s that led to the founding of Queen’s University.
