The Way Forward for Travel & Tourism
The global tourism sector, decimated by the pandemic and devastated by restrictions on travel, is examining how the industry will rebound as the world gradually emerges from lockdown.
Some of the leading innovators in the international travel and tourism industry, including Greg Klassen, Deirdre Campbell, Muna Haddad, Cedar Swan & Damian Cook, will explore that path in an upcoming webinar.
Cows & Classics
The Stratford Symphony Orchestra
When the Stratford Symphony Orchestra board of directors were looking for a new fundraiser seven years ago, board member David Murray quickly offered up the farm he shares with wife Annamarie, as a possible venue to showcase local musical talent.
It was almost a no-brainer for David and Annamarie, as years earlier, while they were living just down the road, the couple hosted regular concerts on their porch, and later in their backyard, for as many as 300 people at a time - so they knew what it would take to put on an entertaining show for a large crowd.
As the Cows and Classics concert has become more well-known in the community, the calibre of musical entertainment has increased as has the number of musicians performing. This year's line-up is truly amazing!
Cows and Classics will broadcast from the Murray Farm site with social distancing guests and no audience. Join us online at 7:30pm on Sunday, June 28th
LIVE FROM REVIVAL
Revival House is pleased to have partnered with Ballinran Entertainment to present a live performance from Revival House featuring singer-songwriter and author, Kelly Walker.
On June 9th, we witnessed the words, the music & the stories which combine to create a most entertaining and inspiring Canadian performer.
Now and again you find a voice, a message and a man wrapped into one to bring songs to the hearts of people. Kelly Walker is it!
DARKNESS INTO LIGHT
The Stratford Symphony Orchestra
Tune in at 7:30pm on Sunday, May 10 - Mother's Day - for the on-line World Premiere of 'Darkness Into Light', a live SSO concert filmed by Ballinran Entertainment.

The Spirit of Community
This special celebrated the resilience of our community.
