LETTERS: World-class entertainment


We are so lucky to live where we do.


We are so lucky to live where we do.

On Sunday, Nov. 9, I attended one of the Encore Peninsula Concerts at White Rock First United Church, this one featuring exceptional pianist Francesco Nicolosi.

Aside from being the best value in this or any other town, there are other reasons to consider going to these concerts:

1. If you like classical music, why wouldn’t you go?

2. If you are not such a fan that you would spend $$$ and go all the way to Vancouver for a long concert, why not dip your toe in an hour-long session in your own backyard?

3. The concerts are at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoons and last about an hour; you can be home in time to get Sunday dinner together.

4. If you are a music student, this is an inexpensive chance to hear world-class professionals.

There are four more concerts in the new year. Info and tickets are available at any White Rock Leisure Services venue, or at www.whiterockcity.ca

I have no connection to this organization. I just love to let folks in on a good deal. See you in 2015?

Michèle McManus, White Rock
