I wanted to share this song I wrote as a proposal for my wife Catherine… We are both environmentalists, and we met at a composting convention… I was hired to sing environmental songs that day, and Catherine was the environmental representative at the London School Board at the time. We met over a composting unit, and our relationship just grew organically from there…”
Happy valentine’s day everyone :)
Against the backdrop of southeastern British Columbia’s dramatic mountain scenery, the Kootenay region is one of the smallest populations in Canada to support a symphony orchestra. This weekend, the Symphony of the Kootenays, led by conductor Jeff Faragher, will present a world premiere event in Cranbrook, BC with acclaimed musician Chris McKhool and Sultans of String!
Show time is 2:00 pm Mountain Standard Time at Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre on Sunday Feb 2, 2014.
The Symphony is also playing with Sultans of String for adult audiences on Saturday February 1, 2014 at Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre.
