On Oct. 23 and 24, Hamiltonians will be treated to the premiere of a new operetta, St. George and the Dragon.

Written by Dundas composer John Laing, in conjunction with librettists John and Gillian Ferns, the musical is part of a concert being presented by The John Laing Singers at St. George’s Anglican Church in Hamilton to commemorate 100 years of hristiam witness at 134 Emerson St.

The concert will also include a wealth of choral music by composers such as Henry Purcell, Gerald Finzi, Pierre Villette, Nancy Telfer, Muzio Clementi and John Rutter.

In 1909, Canon Howitt, Rector of St. George's Anglican Church on Tom Street in Hamilton, founded St. Margaret's Anglican Church on Emerson Street. For 95 years Christian services were celebrated at St. Margaret's.

In 2004, St. Margaret's Church and property were purchased by St. George's, adding another five years of worship at that location. The John Laing concert is one of the events planned in celebration of this centennial.

Tickets for the concerts, which will be held at 134 Emerson St. at 8 p. m., can be purchased at the door.

The cost is $15 ($10 for seniors and students).
