Kingston Symphony Association
Music Lovers' House Tour
May 24, 2008

March 26, 2008-- For Immediate Release

The 13th annual Music Lovers' House Tour, a fundraiser for The Kingston Symphony Association and one of Kingston's premier springtime events, will take place on May 24th, 2008 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Featured this year are eight residences which have been graciously offered by their owners for the tour. These include a charming west end family home featuring a tapestry of rich colours melded with noteworthy antiques; a wonderful limestone carriage house, preserved and updated; two homes offering sweeping views of Lake Ontario and a distinctive home set in the co-operative neighbourhood of Grenville Park. A 1920 vintage home, a remodeled Alwington Place residence and a new Trailhead Place bungalow complete this years selection of private homes. In addition we are excited to offer a mini tour of the refurbished Grand Theatre, home of the Kingston Symphony. .

A special feature of the House Tour is the live music that is played throughout the day in each of the houses. Musicians from the Kingston Symphony Orchestra, The Kingston Youth Orchestra, The Queen's University School of Music and other local musicians performing as soloists or in groups provide an enjoyable musical background as participants take in the unique and stunning features of each house.

A light lunch is provided from a choice of one of three local churches. One is a picturesque church, St. John's Anglican, built in 1849-1850, Chalmers United, a beautiful limestone church built in 1890 and Our Lady of Lourdes Church has a more recent history, having been built in 1970 and on its 25th anniversary, added a new Parish Hall.

Passbooks, which include lunch, cost $30.00. They feature sketches of the houses and churches by the well known artist Shirley Hulley. Passbooks may be purchased after April 14th at the following locations:

Expressions Fashion Boutique, 2815 Princess St.
