Arts Council to present final concert of the season

Arrow Lakes District Arts Council prepares for its final concert of the season at the Bonnington Arts Centre.

On May 8 the Arrow Lakes District Arts Council will be presenting pianist Sarah Hagen, the last of this season’s Concert Series.

Because it takes place on Mother’s Day, this concert will be held at 2 p.m. in the Bonnington Arts Centre. This way, families can take mom out to lunch, then bring her to the concert, or take her to the concert and out to dinner afterwards.

When as a child Sarah Hagen first understood what it meant to pull notes off a page, throw them into the air, and wonder at their magical effects, she knew that music would forever be her life.

“I was recently asked what inspires me,” she said. “This is both an impossible question and a no-brainer. Everything inspires me: my astounding colleagues, strange dreams after a midnight feast with friends, three words strung together in a novel, a ridiculous joke, baskets of poignant memories.”

Sarah Hagen has been heard in concert halls and on airwaves throughout North America and Europe. Her interpretations have been described as outstandingly inventive, performed with infinite skill. She is the BC Touring Council’s 2015 Artist of the Year.

On May 8 at 2 p.m., come join us for a wonderful afternoon of piano music, at the Bonnington Arts Centre.

Tickets will be available at the Bon Marche/Dollar Store until 4 p.m. on Saturday, then at the door. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.
