Something of a cross between a concert society and a social organization, our -goal is to entertain and educate; presently we have more · than 200 loyal members. Each season we present approximately six concerts, an annual party, and usually a lecture/discussion, all free of charge to members. Guests are always most welcome, and we meet at the First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto, 175 St. Clair Ave. W., near Avenue Road. The recommended tax-deductible donation for a family membership is per calendar year. The Society has recently presented such artists as violinist Erika Raum, fortepianist Colin Tilney and soprano Meredith Hall, and the Gryphon Piano Trio. Our next two programs will be Monday, December 2, featuring the Kocian Quartet from Prague, and Wednesday, December 11, with the Toronto Chamber Society choir led by David Fallis. Both events are at 8:00 p.m., and new members for 1997 are also invited.
