The Young Majesties Association

A comedy of humours in two acts. When twelve dead young rulers unite to create an association in the afterlife, there is an inevitable struggle for ultimate power: the title of President of the Young Majesties Association. Historic personalities construct a chaotic disorganization, filled with a series of tense relationships and inflated egos that can’t help but conflict with each other. It becomes apparent that “unite” is a relative term, and that it is not only the good that die young.

We’re looking for 100 Guitarists/Singers (and we will count ‘em!) to play and sing Ben E. King’s Stand by Me on Sunday, May 24, 2015 at 1pm, at The Registry Theatre in Kitchener. All money raised – from donations by participants, audience, sponsors  and subsequent social media campaign – will go to the Mennonite Central  Committee for their relief work in Nepal. Participants are asked for a minimum $10 donation.

Inspired by the recent 100 Guitars Falling Slowly event at the Mirvish Theatre in Toronto, instigator and amateur musician Susan Koswan said, “The concept felt like a natural fit to raise money for Nepal after the horrendous destruction from the earthquake and subsequent aftershocks—and what better song than Stand by Me, especially with the recent death of the song’s composer, Ben E. King.”

The Registry Theatre, Folk Night at The Registry, The Rookery and Creative Enterprise Initiative are supporting and contributing to make this cultural event possible.

Rick Cober Bauman, Executive Director of MCC Ontario said, “I am thrilled that the arts community is reaching out so generously. They really typify the spirit that MCC has often seen in this community. A deep human need appears and within a few days we receive calls from musicians who want to take the lead on creating an event that will benefit sisters and brothers across the globe who have lost everything. It is both humbling and inspiring to be surrounded by such a generous arts community.”

Interested musicians should register at: https://eventbrite.ca/event/16924464529/ where they can also download the lyrics and chords to Stand by Me.

A representative from the Mennonite Central Committee will be at The Registry to receive donations. Tax receipts can be issued for donations of $10 or more. You can also donate online https://donate.mcccanada.ca/ Any donations before Monday May 25, 2015 are eligible to be matched by the Canadian Government.

One Night Only: Live at The Registry

PENDERECKI STRING QUARTET meets QUINSIN NACHOFF
Jazz meets Classics & Beyond

PSQ is one of Canada’s finest, and certainly most adventurous classical ensembles. Wilfrid Laurier University’s Quartet In Residence carry a full teaching load, while also keeping a busy performing schedule. The quartet features violinists Jerzy Kaplanek and Jeremy Bell, violist Christine Vlajk, and cellist Katie Schailkjer. From Mozart, to Bartok, to Zappa, this group is fearless. The last time they appeared at The Registry was with Jane Bunnett’s renowned Spirits of Havana, featuring pianist Hilario Duran. The PSQ return in a collaboration with the remarkable New York based, Canadian chamber jazz composer and sax player Quinsin Nachoff and his trio, featuring drummer Dan Weiss, and bassist Mark Helias.
