Meet us in the Etherington House for INSIDE AGNES. Developed by members for members, INSIDE AGNES runs on the second Sunday each month from September through April. These congenial sessions of music performance, conversation, art and tea are organized by The Agnes Society volunteers, with the stellar team of Alan Grant, Marcia Shannon, Susan Gibbon, Catie Allan, Sandy Fox and others. All are welcome.

Free Family Care Drop-In is available in the Studio.

12 November 2017

A variety of music will be shared to suit all ages and musical preferences from Pirates of Penzance to Brahms by Kingston’s dynamic cello quartet. Cellists: Jennifer Tindale, Janice Ley, Nick Fall and Mara Shaw. Accellorando is a group of four Kingstonians who embrace all things cello.  They love the lush and deep sounds of a cello quartet, and are keen to see and play music from all genres arranged for cello quartet.

Art: Textile Conservation Technician Caitlyn Picard will introduce some of her favourite items from the Collection of Canadian Dress. Join her in exploring a selection of artefacts, including a unique monkey-hair coat, gelatine sequins, and a hat worn by Agnes Etherington in her 1950 portrait by Grant Kenneth Macdonald, which is currently on display in the Etherington House.
