1. What is the address of the venue for this event?
Creekside Hall at Canmore Seniors Association is located at 600B Ninth Street, Canmore, AB, T1W 3L9
2. Where do I get tickets? How much are they?
This will be a nonticketed free community event (thanks to the Alberta Foundation for the Arts): first come, first serve.
3. How long will the concert be?
The concert runs about 50 minutes. If viruses aren’t running too rampant, we’ll have a stringed instrument discovery zoo afterwards, where audience members can take turns trying a kid-sized cello and violin or two (with the help of our performers).
4. What will the show be like?
We start with a short selection of Beethoven’s music, followed by introductions, a little about our instruments and about Beethoven, some listening games, a short history of Little Red Riding Hood, and then the main event: Little Red Riding Hood narrated alongside Beethoven’s epic String Quartet No. 11 in F minor Op. 95, “Serioso.” This is not your typical fairytale! It has many of the traditional elements, but Beethoven’s music seems to suggest a different ending…
5. Are costumes allowed? Are costumes required?
All are welcome, with or without costumes— although this being an all-ages event, we encourage costumes that will foster a sense of fun for even the littlest among us.
6. Who will be performing?
Luminous Voices singer Julie Freedman Smith will narrate/sing, along with Kensington Sinfonia members Genevieve Micheletti (violin 1), Diane Lane (violin 2), Liza Scriggins (writer and viola), and Andrea Case (cello).
