Twenty-five years ago a visionary woman left a bequest to buy a concert grand piano for the musical community of Owen Sound. On Saturday, March 21 at 8:00 p.m. that piano will be re-dedicated at a concert by Angela Park, a classical pianist of international repute.

Ms. Park will perform at the Harmony Centre, at 4th Avenue East and 9th Street. The community-owned teaching and concert space for many of Owen Sound's aspiring and professional musicians is now the permanent home for the grand piano, in the care of the Georgian Bay Symphony.

Formerly Knox United Church, the building has a rich musical heritage. In the 1930s and 40s, Mr. Cyril Moss was the organist. He often held public concerts at the church, encouraging its use for social and entertainment purposes to create and strengthen a sense of community.
