Cat watches Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony in Barn, and The Magic Flute

c. August 14, 1995 - A cat watches the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony in a barn near Durham, Ontario.
Michael Schmidt is a dairy farmer who also used to put on concerts and operas in a barn until recently when the fire marshal said he had to make the barn up to code if he wanted to keep on doing it. I think they were playing Haydn's Creation.

Cat again.
Schmidt is also known for his struggle to be allowed to distribute unpasteurized milk
Some performers  were from the Six Nations reserve near Brantford. This is from 1996's production of The Magic Flute.
