April 2020 Harp Festival with Sasha Boldachev and Sharlene Wallace is on hold. Refunds are being processed for all events
Unfortunately, both of these events had to be cancelled because of the COVID 19 pandemic. But this was what had been planned:
We had planned a harp-filled April when we hoped to host two fabulous visiting harpists. Sasha Boldachev is from Russia, now living in Switzerland, and Sharlene Wallace is from Toronto. Two very different but wonderful performers who are also providing learning opportunities to local students of all ages and stages.
To celebrate we were offering a "festival "pass that gets you into all the events for both harpists - or you could purchase individual tickets or a day pass for Sharlene Wallace only. You'll see the tickets on the right or immediately below this info.
Sasha Boldachev is a world renowned harpist who last visited Vancouver in 2018. His concert program was "Frederic and Freddie - a celebration the music of Frederic Chopin and Freddie Mercury - all translated by transfixing and masterful harp work. He was going to conduct two masterclasses for students on Sat, April 4th. Players had to register through their teacher, but there is much to be learned from just listening. Auditors pay $10, unless they are members who are FREE.
Sharlene Wallace is known for her extravagant Lever Harp compositions, and her performances on both lever and pedal harps. She is an in-demand Workshop leader and was to conduct one for intermediate level students of all ages, as well as a masterclass. Then to top off a fine day with "the Shar" as she is known, she was to play a concert at the same venue, April 13th, 7 pm.
Individual tickets were to be sold to any event in the festival, but the best deal was the Festival pass for $75, or the Sharlene Wallace Day pass for $55. We're so fortunate to have two such fine musicians visiting back to back - we encourage to come and celebrate fine music and thank you for your support!!!
