" At least one performer, dancer Rex . artist, a composer who is flattered Harrington, will go beyond what he when others compliment his unique voice but is nonetheless wary of being categorized as a result."

Serenata usually does and will sing and act as well as dance in this performance. And, as Harrington dances, flutist ciano Berio's Sequenza by memory as she relates to Harrington's every movement. The repertoire for the concert will cross genre boundaries, ling and Duke Ellington. • Avenue Road Arts School Owen Sound Ontario Douglas McNabney viola David Hetherington cello September 24, 25, 26, 2004 l\fark Fewer violin FRIDAY SATURDAY SUNDAY Historic Leith Church, Knox United Church Historic Leith Church, 8pm 8pm 2pm Bach, Britten, Beethoven, Martinu, Ager, Beethoven, Hindemith, Mozart Rea, Rossini Haydn Ticket Ticket Tickets 1· For more information and tickets .
