MARKET HALL'S NEXT EVENT IN ITS BRIGHT LIGHT SERIES
Market Hall Performing Arts Centre is proud to continue its Bright Lights Series on October 16th. The "bright lights" of this series are exceptionally talented local performing artists, often known internationally. Each event in the series features the life and work of one artist through conversation, anecdotes, stories and performance.
On October 16, the audience will have the pleasure of learning about and honouring Syd Birrell. Syd is the well-known conductor of the Peterborough Singers, a choir recognized far beyond Canada. However, Syd's life is a coat of many colours. Though born in Sarnia, he has a most interesting British background that accounts for his expertise in building and engineering. Some know him as a master organist; others, know him as a compassionate counselor and motivational speaker. Of course, many know him as founder, fundraiser and advocate of The James Fund which supports ground-breaking research to find a cure for neuroblastoma, a devastating child cancer.
Find out more about Syd Birrell, entrepreneur, community builder, artist, explorer, author, and lover of life. Come to "An Evening with Syd Birrell" at Market Hall on Wednesday, October 16 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available at Market Hall for $22. Call 749-1146, Monday to Friday, 12 to 5 pm.
The Market Hall has an elevator and thus is fully accessible for patrons and Artists. The Historic hall is also equipped with a hearing assist program.
