Benefit for Red Cross of Alberta

At Müzewest Concerts, we have been very moved by the devastation that happened to the city of Fort McMurray, Alberta.  The province of Alberta is our neighbours and many of our good musical friends are from this part of the country.

On Friday, May 20th at 7:30 PM, the dear people of St. Helen’s Anglican Church in beautiful Point Grey have donated their church for this event.  They have a lovely Steinway Piano.

Admission is by donation to the Canadian Red Cross.  Here’s the lineup of fantastic visiting and local artists.  Thank you in advance for supporting this cause.  There will also be a special, guest appearance which will be a surprise!
