Of Rights and Freedoms

On Saturday we went in to see Courageous at the Tarragon Theatre. I’d heard good things about this play and it certainly didn’t disappoint. I don’t want to give a blow-by-blow account, but in a nutshell it is a clever play that deals with issues of rights and freedoms. The story is told through the lives of 3 couples and, although the two acts were very, very different from each other, they work really well together.

On Sunday we went to the “Follow the Freedom Trail” concert put on by Choralis Camerata and featuring soloist Theresa Holierhoek (for a sample of Holierhoek’s talent, check out this performance from the Ice Wine Festival in Jordan). This was an amazing event that focused on the role of music in the Underground Railroad. As a newcomer to this region I don’t think I realized just how significant St. Catharines was in this history.
