Comox Valley ElderCollege presents local and highly esteemed musician Sarah Hagen this Saturday as part of the Saturday Lecture Series.
This semester’s series topic is Music in the Comox Valley and Sarah will talk about her life as a freelance classical pianist.
As an artist who always felt that music chose her, she’ll share her viewpoint on the sacrifices and rewards, the discipline and the bliss that are a part of an independent musician’s life. In addition, Sarah will perform some of her favourite pieces to further illustrate her thoughts.
This series is open to all ElderCollege members 55 and older and is held on Saturday mornings from 10 to noon at the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College, which is named for Sarah’s father.
For those not registered for the eight-week series, the cost is $10 to attend each lecture.
This is the fifth presentation in the series, with three remaining. Next week, Rick Husband and Dale Graham will talk about jazz. they will be followed by Pippa Williams, director of the Strathcona Symphony Orchestra, and will include a short performance of some of their pieces.
The final lecture will be a retrospective on the Comox Valley Youth Music Centre (CYMC), and a discussion of the many alumni that are now part of the Canadian and international music scene.
