Concert in Support of a Syrian Refugee Sponsorship Effort

of the

Summerlea Refugee Support Coalition

March 12, 2016

We at Summerlea were delighted when Leslie and Keith Field approached us with a concert idea featuring the Lakeshore Saxophone Quartet and the Trio Chalumeau and to dedicate any raised monies to the Summerlea Refugee Support Coalition in support of our efforts to sponsor a Syrian family seeking a new life in Montreal.

Trio Calumeau
Left to right: Dave Spencer, Susan Keess, Christine McCurdy.
It was the Trio Chalumeau and their clarinets who filled the first half of the concert with their joyful toe-tapping music.
And just in case your toe needs tapping, have a listen to this rag by Scott Joplin performed by the Trio Chalumeau that night!

Lakeshore Saxophone Quartet
From Left to Right: Keith Field, Leslie Field, Dave Spencer, Elizabeth Burnell.
After a brief intermission it was on with the show with the
Lakeshore Saxophone Quartet running the gamut from the classics to showtunes -- wonderful!

Don't believe me?
Give a listen to the jaunty ragtime offering of
That's a Plenty from the early 20th. century!

An extra thanks to Dave Spencer who did double duty: on the sax and on the clarinet.
That's an awful lot of those little black dots on the page!!!

A success?? Yes!!

Our thanks to the Lakeshore Saxophone Quartet and the Chalumeau Trio for their generous sharing of talents.

With the take from the door and the help of a very generous donation from Leslie Field's west coast brother Dave and partner Paul
we were able to add over Two Thousand Dollars to the SRSC fund!

Thank you, thank you -- to ALL who contributed.

And of course, at such an event, there must be a chance for
fellowship, goodies, chat with the musicians and the opportunity to discuss the project with different members of the SRSC committee who were on hand.
