Broadcast Live on Sunday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m. EST
Update: The provincial government has imposed a Stay-At-Home Order for all of Ontario beginning Thursday, April 8. Unfortunately, this restriction prohibits streaming concerts. This means that we cannot proceed with our final two cabarets that were scheduled to be broadcast live from St. Jacobs Country Playhouse on Sunday, April 11 (Kelly Holiff) and Sunday, April 18 (Little Big Band). We hope to reschedule these concerts later this spring when it’s safe to do so and restrictions are lifted.
Vocal powerhouse Kelly Holiff sings songs by Broadway and popular composers who shaped her life including Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”, Céline Dion's “It's All Coming Back To Me Now”, “Defying Gravity” from the hit musical Wicked, and more. Kelly is accompanied by Music Director Jeannie Wyse on piano, Mike Allen on guitar, Pol Coussée on reeds, Jamie Drake on drums and Ross MacIntyre on bass. This concert is not pre-recorded and cannot be viewed at a later date. Audiences must tune into the live broadcast in order to watch.

I have friends and family who would like to watch the series. Can I share the concerts with them?
Yes, these concerts are free to the public. However, they are only available to viewers in Canada and the United States because the series is supported by the Music Performance Trust Fund, which only permits viewers in these two countries.
What is the Music Performance Trust Fund?
Established in 1948, the Music Performance Trust Fund (MPTF) is a non-profit independent public service organization whose mission includes contributing to the public knowledge and appreciation of music, as well as making music a part of every child's life experience. Headquartered in New York City, MPTF evolved from a landmark collective bargaining agreement between the American Federation of Musicians and the major recording companies of the day. Today the MPTF is a vital organization that brings music to the public and supplements the income of musicians, all at no cost to those receiving this precious gift of music.
