With the current uncertainty in the health crisis and not knowing when a vaccine will be available to the general public, the Festival Committee and OGEHR Board have decided to postpone the OGEHR May 2021 Festival, It's About Time.
We want our members to remain healthy and wait until safer times to get together. We intend to use our current plans for whatever date the festival is held. If you have purchased the music, please keep it for your future practices. We have contacted Kath Wissinger and Lisa Kyriakides to confirm their availability for May 2022. At this time, we are hoping to hold the Festival in May 2022 at St. Lawrence College in Kingston as originally planned.
We will keep you informed as time moves forward and let you know the Festival status by September 2021. In the meantime, we hope everyone stays safe and finds some bell music to enjoy if you can!
The Festival theme is It’s About Time which speaks to our Time to ring bells together again, Time signatures and changes of Time in the themes of our chosen pieces. It is also Time to think of our relations with Indigenous peoples as we spend quiet Time near the waters of Lake Ontario. Our logo designer, OGEHR member Madeline Lang, has created an image of Kingston’s iconic limestone City Hall, the First Capital of Canada, with its bell tower and clock. It’s About Time the bell festival returned to Kingston, The Limestone City!
