Zorin Calendar and Evolution

Is Evolution necessary to use the Calendar feature in Zorin 16.

It looks like both Zorin calendar and Evolution are both needed by the calendar feature in the OS.

It looks like Gnome Calendar is used to render the calendar events where as Evolution is used to managed events, is this correct?

If I remove Evolution from my system will it break the calendar Feature?

I am actually using mailspring for mail, I was going to remove Evolution but when adding events I noticed Zorin was using Evolution to manage them so I am guessing it's required?

An alternative would be to use Thunderbird (mail client) with Lightning (calendar) extension. Thunderbird is not installed as default mail app in Zorin, but can be found in Software Store. Just make sure you choose apt not Snap version.
