The Amherst Island Waterside Summer Series was established in 1994 to raise funds for St. Alban’s Church but is now an independent not-for-profit organization. Its goal is to present quality music in the wonderful setting of Amherst Island, a place of tranquillity and natural beauty just a half-hour drive from downtown Kingston, west along the Loyalist Parkway. The concerts take place at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, just south of Stella.  Tickets cost $35  and include refreshments served during the 20-minute intermission.
