The Kingston Road Village Concert Series is the brainchild of Tim Dawson, a bassist with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and member of Kingston Road United Church. Four to six concerts a year are presented at Kingston Road United Church, a central location in the Kingston Road Village and an amazing acoustic space. All concerts feature exciting professional musicians performing music that ranges from traditional classical to the avant garde. Everyone is welcome, especially kids. The proceeds raised from these concerts assist Kingston Road United Church to do critical repairs on its building, which serves as a community hub in the Beaches, Toronto.
Unless specified, concerts are $20, $10 for students, and free for children 12 and under.
Weimar to Vaudeville with Tom Allen & Company - February 26th 1:30pm
A Tom Allen & Company concert is a musical sensation! Part musical, part drama, this production explores the period of the 20's and 30's with wit, stories, and music by gifted local performing artists!
From Weimar to Vaudeville is the story of two men, both sons of musical royalty. As America emerges from the Great Depression and Germany descends into darkness and chaos. Two musical princes, one rich, one poor, reach to each other across hardship and time as the world tilts again toward war.
Featuring music by Richard Strauss, Charlie Chaplin, Kurt Weill, Fletcher Henderson, Mozart, Brahms, and stunning original songs by the cast. Weimar to Vaudeville is Tom Allen’s vivid imagining of the 20s and 30s: dirty as ever and roaring loudly enough to be heard half-way ’round the world. Featuring Patricia O’Callaghan, Bryce Kulak, Kevin Fox, Lori Gemmell, Peter Gemmell and Tom Allen.
Tickets are $30 for adults, free for children under 12 years of age. Proceeds of this concert support Kingston Road United Church's Building Fund.
