‘Sunday Evening in the Park’ upcoming in Dresden

There’ll be something for everyone at 2019’s Sunday Evening in the Park.

Music fans of all ages will want to check out The Commissionaires on Aug. 11. This new “soul-roots-gospel” band is led by Jacob Moon (who performed at the 2013 Rock ’n Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony) and Joel Parisien (of the Juno-nominated Newworldson.)

This is a rare chance to see world-class musical talent with a message of social justice, finding peace and redemption.

Into motorcycles? A group from the Godspeed Chapter of the Christian Motorcyclists Association will be roaring into town July 14 – it’ll be a feast for the ears and the eyes.

Watch 100 Huntley Street? Be sure to turn up July 21 to hear the powerful vocals of Kevin Pauls, a regular performer on Canada’s longest-running daily TV show who has also toured with The Gaithers.

Want a taste of Nashville? On Sept. 1, Check out Julian & Bonnie George, who are touring Southern Ontario and Michigan all the way from Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Of course, most of the evenings will continue to feature what our supporters know and love – Gospel favourites, hymns and adult contemporary songs by well-known local musicians.
