6 ~ VAC

As a continuation of the Public Space project, Sahar Te invites JP King and Matt Nish-Lapidus to host an experimental sonic dialogue at the VAC’s Loft Gallery. Compos(t)ing challenges the behaviour of communication networks through the use of modular synthesizers and software that mimic and take inspiration from mycelial networks. Join us in celebrating the closure of Te’s installation, as King and Nish-Lapidus prepare a fertile bed to lay Te’s mycelial conversations to peaceful hibernation over the winter months.
Registration is recommended, spaces are limited

Join us over Zoom as we decorate a small object using the simple yet elegant method of decoupage. Take & Make kits will be available for pickup prior to the event at our Central Library. You will receive an email with pickup instructions and a link to the online event.

12 ~ Resound Choir

RESOUND's Trivia Night and Cake Auction
Join us for a fun evening of laughter and trivia. All are welcome! Meet some new folks, including a lot of us in the choir, as you puzzle out the answers (or perhaps just offer some smart retorts) to 3 games of 13 trivia questions. The randomly assigned teams of eight will re-scramble at the start of each game, and since there are no prizes, it's pretty low-key and just a ton of fun.
Homemade cakes (and at least one fruit pie) will be on the block for a live auction (in the chat), and the delivery (Durham Region only!) will be the next day. If you don't win a cake, perhaps you'll be our booze basket raffle or 50/50 winner . . .
The Zoom link to the event will be emailed two DAYS before and again two HOURS before game night!

Paul Anthony -CASH-
We all have either grown up listening to Johnny’s music in our parents’ home, experienced a Johnny Cash television show, Johnny Cash movie or a live performance somewhere in the world.
Johnny Cash spent his life writing music and telling the stories of people from all walks of life, people from both sides of the track. Our Mission is to continue telling the Johnny Cash Story with the sounds and storyline of the ‘Man In Black’ Johnny Cash.
Every effort has been taken to re-create the sounds of Johnny Cash. From the Guitar playing sound of Luther Perkins, The Stand Up Bass sound of Marshall Grant, The Drumming sound of ‘Fluke’ Holland and the vocal sound of ‘The Man In Black’ Johnny Cash.
