Time:8 - 10 p.m.
Location:    The Concert Hall at Victoria Hall (55 King St. W., Cobourg)
Cost:$40 concert only, $80 for pre-concert gala reception and premium seating at concert
Created by historian Hugh Brewster, the evening will tell the remarkable story of how Cobourg came to have “a hall so grand”, and give highlights from its 160 years – from the royal ball which launched it in 1860 to its rescue from the wrecker’s ball in the 1970s. Accompanying Hugh Brewster, as narrator, will be Brigitte Robinson, and a multi-media screen show of archival images and film clips. The Edison Singers, conducted by Noel Edison, will perform a program which evokes the many eras the Hall has seen, from the songs which welcomed the Prince of Wales in 1860, through the music of two world wars to the present. The concert will be followed by refreshments in the Citizens’ Forum.
