The Sidewalk Cellist
Back again for a second year this Spring the Britannia Centre, in partnership with Clara Shandler the Sidewalk Cellist, will present free cello concerts in Grandview Park. Clara wants to expose the world to classical music. A soon-to-be graduate of the UBC School of Music, Clarahas found that events featuring classical music are often tucked away in concert halls and discrete venues. In addition, the genre does not get a lot of attention through mainstream culture or in the public education system.
As a means to instigate change, and engage everyday people in the world of classical music, Clara is offering a free concert Saturdays in Grandview Park from 2:00-4:00 pm. (Commercial Drive @ Charles St.)
Concerts are weather permitting.
