Inspired by rituals from around the world, Walking in Beauty features music by Thierry Pécou (France), Katarina Livljanić (Croatia), and Guillermo Diego (Mexico).
At a time when scientific and technological progress is at an all time high – this is an opportunity to unplug, to find a state in which “one feels that everything is in its place”.
Harmony, balance and beauty. It’s time to listen and it’s time to heal.
Please join us for a post-concert reception with wine generously sponsored by Consulate General of France in Vancouver.
