UPCOMING CONCERTS

The Kingston Community Strings concerts for the 2020-2021 season have been cancelled due to concerns about COVID-19. We hope to resume our in-person rehearsals and concerts (an outdoor concert in the late spring/early summer of 2021 is a possibility) when it is safe and within the public health guidelines to do so.

LOCATION

Most concerts, unless otherwise noted, are held in Christ Church Cataraqui, 990 Sydenham Rd, Kingston, ON K7M 3L7. There is ample parking at the church.
