A Steveston-based fine arts venue is hosting its first live concert since the pandemic started.
The World of Music and Arts (WOMAA) is hosting "Savor The Light" on Saturday, Oct. 23 at the Canadian Flower Winery on Westminster Highway.
According to WOMAA's Anna Vavilova, a Russian pianist who is starring in the performance, the concert's theme has a double meaning.
"During the fall the days are getting shorter and shorter and we savour every moment of sunshine that we are lucky to get," said Vavilova.
"I would like to apply this as a metaphor to the current times that we live in today.
"We are showered with bad news at such a ratio that good news comes through as a fleeting ray of sunshine that we must savour.
Vavilova said she will performing the music of Schubert on piano, as a "short refuge" from everyday problems.
"His cycle of 4 Impromptus Op.90 is one of the most stunning compositions, full of light and beauty," she added.
And, as a thank you to the "wonderful audience" of past performances, Vavilova is offering four free tickets (two pairs) to the first callers at 778-297-5505.
Savor the Light goes Saturday, Oct. 23 at the Canadian Flower Winery, 16060 Westminster Hwy.
Tickets are $40 (including a glass of wine) and can be bought by calling 778-297-5505 or online at www.worldofmusicandarts.com.
