This is a very busy year for our Queen and her household. The next appearance will be spectacular and I am really looking forward to it. On Sunday, May 16 at 3 pm at St. Luke's Anglican Church in Annapolis Royal is grand musical afternoon. There's a combined concert with A Royal Consort and the Annapolis Basin Community Band. If the weather permits, I will be walking from the Town Hall to the church with my household to listen to the Annapolis Royal Suite and The Ode to Queen Anne which was written to celebrate her birthday.
Along with the glorious music in a grand setting will be the unveiling of the Queen's Portrait painted by local artist Rick Zenkner. I have not been allowed to see this painting so it will be a surprise for me too.
After the concert, the Queen will direct the planting of an 'Anne' Magnolia on the church grounds by the Queen's Gardener Angelika. This is Magnolia Festival time after all.
So be sure to get your ticket for the grand event - Westside Studio certainly has tickets for sale.
