The idea for SueFest was born in late 2013 after
the sudden passing of an incredible community member
known for her gentle kindness, musical ability and
commitment to the deaf blind community.
Susan Elaine Wallbank-Maher was a local teacher who
spent a lot of her time fundraising for charitable causes.
That is why we are excited to boast that in the festivals first
year we raised nearly $10.000 for continued research for
The Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada!

In many ways the Brant Men of Song have returned to their roots. Outside events have helped to precipitate this. The Associated of Male Choruses of American went bankrupt and has yet to recover. The Associated Male Choruses of Ontario has become less active. At the same time the Brant Men of Song and the Brant Belle’ A’ Dears [now the Brant Country Singers] have refocused on entertaining people in Brant County and surrounding communities. The two choirs have been able to create a flexible program in which audiences are treated to the music of a male chorus, a ladies chorus and a mixed choir. The music continues to be a versatile mix of sacred, folk, show, movie and popular music with a dash of classical.
This event will be supporting the Stedman Community Hospice, free will donations will be accepted in lieu of cover charges. Show starts at 7:30pm.
