#ygkChallenge: Kingston Symphony

Kingston SymphonyWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Support the Kingston Symphony.  If you were to ask me 20 years ago whether or not I would become an avid symphony concert-goer, I probably would have responded with an immature fart noise.  Aside from planning on attending their upcoming annual Christmas concert, I’m also keen on other future performances featuring music by Tchaikovsky, Bach, Beethoven and the list goes on.  Bottom line, if you’ve never been to one of their concerts, now’s the time!

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge. As you work towards completing this week’s task, please feel free to lend others a helping hand by providing tips on how you achieved success.

  • I'm in! I know some folks who are huge supporters and I need to get out of my t-shirt and into a dress shirt.

    • I know for a fact that you can wear t-shirts to the Symphony. There is no real dress code that I am aware of, or at least it only applies to those performing.

      • Only a dress code for our musicians, although they have worn t-shirts for the odd performance. Come as you are – t-shirts, jeans, evening gowns – whatever you'd like.

  • The Christmas concert sounds amazing! Will definitely try to make it to that.
