Bagatelle or Bust at Studio Live with Sarah Hagen

Have you ever wanted to know more about bagatelles?

Join pianist Sarah Hagen for “Bagatelle or Bust!,” an exploration of brief but remarkable piano works by Beethoven, Bartók, and others at Studio Live on Friday, Nov. 9.

The 75-minute programme will be offered twice with performances in the morning at 11 a.m. and in the evening at 7:30 pm.

Tickets are $23 and can be purchased online at and at the door, if available. As seating is limited and Hagen’s October performances at Studio Live were at capacity, advance purchase is strongly recommended. Studio Live is located at 2679 Beaufort Ave in Cumberland.

Hagen was recently inducted into the Comox Valley Walk of Achievement, alongside fellow Comox Valley musicians Doug Cox, Helen Austin, Trent Freeman, Sue Medley, Sarah Neufeld, and Kenny Shaw. She maintains a busy touring schedule across Canada as both pianist and humourist.

For more information, visit or contact Hagen directly at: (416) 454-2363 or
