I often volunteer at our local Centre for Arts and Entertainment.
I get dressed up in my best volunteering outfit, take tickets, hand out programmes, show concert-goers to their seats, sell CDs, indicate the location of the washrooms.... whatever is necessary.
And after I do all that, I stay and watch the show.
This weekend's concert featured a pair of brilliant classical guitarists, Drew Henderson and Michael Kolk. They met studying music at UofT (University of Toronto) and have been established as one of Canada's premier classical guitar duos since 2004.
Drew Henderson was playing a brand new 8 string guitar. I know very little about guitars, but I'd never seen an 8 string version before. I was impressed.
Here's one of the pieces from the concert. The first movement of Le Tombeau de Couperin by Maurice Ravel. Enjoy!
