End of the teaching year brings cards and gifts (thanks kidlets!) I’m not quite sure what was intended here though…

Eve will Also be giving a masterclass to students of the Victoria Conservatory of Music’s Collegium on Thursday January 26th in Wood Hall. After hearing her on the cbc radio’s Studio Q I’m looking forward to seeing her advise and perform.
Attended Micheal Ondaatje’s reading of “The Cat’s Table” last night at the AGPH. Mr Ondaatje read for 40 minutes then answered questions. It turns out that the Cat’s Table is a German phrase for the least important table with the least important people–interesting term! The book is on my to-read list.
Thursday August 18th 6pm-10pm Vancouver is showing off its Literary Journals. I’d really like to go to this year’s Main Street Mag, but am busy this week introducing 7-12 year-olds to music through group piano classes at the Victoria Conservatory of Music. Go if you can!
Monday May 30th, 7:00-8:00, Wood Hall in the Victoria Conservatory of Music. 30 awesome performers from the age of 3.5 through 17 have been working hard all year and get to show it. I’m excited, students, as I’m sure you are too! Admission is free, but come early for a seat and to find parking (street parking only!)
