The Wishing Tree (H’art Centre, Kingston)

“In Prince Edward County, there stood a 700-year old sugar maple that some believed had magical powers to grant wishes. For 200 years, people would kneel beneath her canopy holding the branches and the leaves close to their hearts and make wishes that ultimately came true. Until one day, the tree was struck by lightning.

Inspired by stories and legends of Prince Edward County, The Wishing Tree is a storytelling concert performed by H’art School artists and local performers.

Featuring traditional and new songs, The Wishing Tree’s musical style ranges from folk, gospel, polka and more. H’art artists have created new illustrations, paintings, props, and sets to bring the story of resilience, community and healing to life.
