Maureen Forrester Recital Hall
Wilfrid Laurier University
75 University Avenue West, Waterloo, ON
To reach WLU from Highway 401, take
exit 278B (coming from London) or 278 (coming from Toronto), follow Hwy.
8 West onto Hwy. 85 (Conestoga Pkwy., formerly Hwy. 86) North, and exit
on University Ave. West; follow this to the university campus. The entrance
is on the south side of University Ave., at the first traffic light west
of King St. As you enter the campus, the Recital Hall is the first
building on the right. There is meter parking in front of the building,
and a parking lot further into the campus, on the left as you drive in.
Victoria University is located on
the south side of Charles St. (one block south of Bloor St.), just east
of University Avenue. It's a red stone building on which the stained
glass windows of the Chapel are prominent, set back from the street and
now largely blocked from view by the new Isabel Bader Theatre. To
reach the Chapel, either walk through to the left of the Bader Theatre,
or go further down the street and through the archway into the quadrangle.
The front door is on the east side of the building, up the semicircular
steps under the columned portico. The Museum subway station is a
couple of minutes' walk away. Parking is available in a relatively
reasonable flat rate outdoor lot a block east on Charles St., sparsely
along Charles St. itself, or at various locations farther afield.
Trinity-St. Paul's Centre (aka Trinity-St.
Paul's United Church) is located on the south west corner of Bloor St.
W. and Robert St. (to the south)/Walmer Rd. (to the north), two blocks
west of Spadina Ave. For concerts, enter by the door facing Bloor
St. and towards the eastern end of the building. Street parking is
available north of Bloor St., and the Spadina subway stop is a couple of
minutes' walk away.
Chamber Music Society
KWCMS concerts are held in the KWCMS
Music Room at 57 Young St. W., Waterloo, one block west of Albert St. (just
west of King St.), overlooking Waterloo Park. If travelling from
out of town: From the south and east, take Hwy. 85 (Conestoga Pkwy.,
formerly Hwy. 86) and exit onto Bridgeport Rd.; go west, through Weber
St., to King St.; turn right and go up King for 1 block; turn left onto
Young St and go through Albert St. From the north, exit off Hwy.
85 onto King St. and follow it down to Young St., which is five blocks
south of University Ave.; turn right. If no street parking is available,
there is a parking lot in Waterloo Park nearby.
The Church of the Holy Trinity is
nestled behind (to the west of) the Eaton Centre, at the north end.
From inside the Eaton Centre, exit though the door on the west side just
south of the Sears (formerly Eatons) store itself, and the Church is in
front of you. From Dundas Street, walk down the alleyway just to
the west of Sears and the church will be on the right. The Dundas
subway station is a couple of minutes' walk away. Parking is available
in the Eaton Centre indoor lot, another new (and cheaper!) indoor lot on
the east side of Yonge, and outdoor parking lots in the area. Trinity
Square, unfortunately, is not on marked on either standard street maps
or online maps, but the Church is not difficult to find.
The Women's Art Association of Canada
is located in a large white-painted house on the south side of Prince Arthur
Avenue (parallel to Bloor St., one block north), between Avenue Road and
Bedford Road. From the Subway, take the Bedford Road exit from the
St. George station. Parking is normal for downtown Toronto:
ticket machines on Prince Arthur and adjacent streets, free street parking
a few blocks north, and an underground parking lot accessed off Bedford.
Pubs and restaurants abound in the area.
