Please join us June 15, 2019 at 3:00 PM at the New Central Library’s Performance Hall (800 3 St SE, Calgary, Alberta), for the story of a Richardson’s ground squirrel as he finds his way in the world, set to the Dohnanyi Serenade for violin, viola and cello. This will be a free public concert, thanks to the Alberta Foundation for the Arts! Grounder’s Grand Adventure features narrator Samantha Whelan Kotkas, violinist Elisa Milner, violist Liza Scriggins, and cellist Olena Kilchyk. Audience members can meet the musicians afterwards and participate in an instrument discovery zoo.
We also look forward to performing this program for Create (the new Calgary Children’s Festival) on May 26 at 5 PM, as well as for children at the Heartland Agency’s various locations in late May. So pleased Olga Cuttell could provide her stunning artwork for all this! See more of what she does at Oladesign.
