1Music Monday 2017
Got the Monday blues? Conductor Bramwell Tovey of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra leads 200 young musicians from across the Lower Mainland in Music Monday 2017 (May 1). A free public concert supporting school music programs, the free event will feature the performance of Sing It Together in honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
Silvia Gallerano bares it all in the Canadian premiere of Cristian Ceresoli’s provocative feminist La Merda (May 2-13). In a three part monologue, all performed completely naked, the play probes the depth of modern society, politics, mental health, female sexuality, and the patriarchy.
For the first time Buena Fe (May 7), one of Cuba’s most popular duos, comes to Vancouver for an intimate acoustic concert followed by a Cuban fiesta with DJ Kubanito.
