Augustinian Order 75 years at Marylake

1942 ~ 2017
In celebration of the Augustinian Order's 75th Anniversary at Marylake and Canada's 150th birthday, the Marylake Concert Series is presenting a Magnificat Concert on Saturday, June 3 at 7 p.m.   Featured artists include the Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts Orchestra Ensemble, Coro San Marco and Alesandra Trimmeliti.  Tickets are $15 and are available at Marylake.

The organ at Marylake is a unique and famed melding of two separate Aeolian-Skinner "Duo-Art" organs, both built in the same factory, in the same year.   One organ came from the Seagram Estate and the other from the Eaton Estate.

Marylake's several hundred acres is a naturalist's treasure and fortuitously, the Oak Ridges Trail makes its way along a beautiful route across Marylake's expanse.

  1. What era do you guess those concrete barbed wire posts are from? I see them in a few places in King. Never saw them in the Quebec, I find them curious.

    1. I believe Henry Pellet Had these posts custom-made and installed to keep his private herd of elk confined to the hunting portion of his property.

  2. All kinds of word play on the organ. Came from Eaton Hall-organ transplant ; compiled from different organs - frankenorgan. Must say it is an impressive looking instrument , thanks for getting the photo.
