Less Violence, More Violins


Sunday September 11, at 2 pm

George Street United Church

Jennifer Johnson’s Less Violence, More Violins fundraising concert works to promote classical music as a positive means of self-expression, rather than violence, while raising money for a non-profit organization. This year it will fundraise for the Refugee and Immigrant Advisory Council, a local charity that helps newcomers to St. John’s through a number of valuable programs. The concert features some of the best classical musicians in the city.
We are partnering with Partakes (A new social enterprise initiative), who are helping to plan and promote the event.
Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased directly from the Refugee and Immigrant Advisory Council online at www.riac.ca, at their office at 204 Water Street, Suite 3000, call to 709-754-4122, at Fred’s Records on Duckworth Street, O’Brien’s Music on Water Street and at the St. John’s Farmer’s Market. The venue is accessible and parking is available.
