CORN­WALL, On­tario - On Satur­day, the Corn­wall Con­cert Se­ries pre­sented Pi­ano Caméléons, fea­tur­ing pi­anists Matt Her­skowitz and John Roney.

Dur­ing the evening, Aultsville The­atre rec­og­nized the gen­eros­ity of the On­tario Tril­lium Foun­da­tion (OTF), and other con­trib­u­tors to the the­atri­cal light­ing re­place­ment project. As­so­ci­at­ing the recog­ni­tion event with the Corn­wall Con­cert Se­ries pro­vided the hon­oured con­trib­u­tors and guests with a chance to see the newly-in­stalled light­ing dur­ing a daz­zling grand pi­ano duel be­tween the two masters of im­pro­vi­sa­tion. Among the con­trib­u­tors, Aultsville The­atre rec­og­nized the Canada Cul­tural Spa­ces Fund, the Cen­ten­nial Choir of Corn­wall, the Ro­tary Club of Corn­wall – Sun­rise, and the Corn­wall Con­cert Se­ries.

Over 100 new light­ing fix­tures, most of which are new LED tech­nol­ogy, new cy­clo­ramas, and pro­gram­ming gear are now in­stalled at Aultsville The­atre, much to the de­light of the the­atre staff and its clients. The project con­trib­u­tors who were of­fi­cially rec­og­nized, played a ma­jor part in the pro­cure­ment of the state-ofthe-art equip­ment. “We’ve been wait­ing for a chance to thank On­tario Tril­lium Foun­da­tion and our gen­er­ous con­trib­u­tors to the project, and this par­tic­u­lar evening seemed to be a per­fect op­por­tu­nity”, said Felic­ity Sven­son, The­atre Board Pres­i­dent. “The Corn­wall Con­cert Se­ries has been very sup­port­ive of the the­atre and we thought it was a nice pair­ing for our recog­ni­tion evening.”

Aultsville The­atre has been serv­ing the City of Corn­wall and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties since 1976, host­ing both tour­ing and pro­fes­sional shows for the ben­e­fit of lo­cal au­di­ences and pro­vid­ing a fully-equipped per­for­mance venue for lo­cal arts and per­for­mance groups.

The On­tario Tril­lium Foun­da­tion (OTF) is an agency of the Govern­ment of On­tario, and one of Canada’s lead­ing grant­ing foun­da­tions. OTF awarded more than $120 mil­lion to some 700 projects this year to build healthy and vi­brant com­mu­ni­ties in On­tario.
