CANCELLED


It is with deep regret that the Strings of St. John's have decided to cancel the final concert of our season scheduled for Sunday, May 3rd. We have continued to follow advice from Ottawa Public Health and the Ontario Government in regards to social distancing and this was clearly the only choice at this time.  Please check back for updates on our 20/21 season later in the summer.
