Brahms's Liebeslieder

Roedde House Museum

On September 14th, treat yourself to both sets of Johannes Brahms’ beloved Liebeslieder Walzer (Love Song Waltzes). Written for four voices and piano four hands, they were conceived in a popular style and likely intended for performance in an informal, private setting just like the museum parlour. Soprano Catherine Laub, mezzo-soprano Fabiana Katz, tenor Mark DeSilva and baritone Wim Vermuelen are joined by pianists Rita Attrot and Stephen Smith in these captivating masterpieces of the genre. This concert is part of a monthly concert series, taking place on the 2nd Sunday of each month, in the afternoon. Come at 1pm, for Tea and Tour before the concert (included in the price of the ticket), or show up right before 3pm for the concert, at your convenience *****PARKING******: Options include the parking lot at the Empire Landmark Hotel (Robson & Broughton) or street parking on Robson and in the West End. Parking spots are scarce in the neighbourhood, so give yourself some extra time or use public transportation. (Closest Skytrain station: Burrard. We are on the #5 Robson bus route) **This concert series would not be possible without the generous support of the Vancouver Foundation**

The Cultch
1895 Venables, Vancouver
Time is the container that is full of memories, fragrance, voice, thought, and emotion. When we're going to define time, time will deviate from its definition. This is a dance, but also a theatre. This is fragmental, but narrative. It is a collective reality, which may or may not exist. Hong Kong choreographer Iris Lau's new dance/theatre presented as part of the Vancouver Fringe Festival.

Dena Hankins
Sep 15, 7:30-9:30 pm
The Art of Loving
1819 W. 5th, Vancouver
Former sex educator Dena Hankins reads from her queer/trans* romance novel, Blue Water Dreams. Sailing, radical politics, and hot, hot sex characterize this warm, affirming story. Publishers Weekly has this to say about Blue Water Dreams: "Seattleites Lania Marchiol, a cisgender woman, and Oly Rasmussen, a transgender man, meet by chance and quickly bond over shared interests...and when Lania and Oly set their differences aside and embrace their sexual chemistry, the scenes are graceful, sure, and spicy." “I love these people,” says Dena. “The characters in this queer/trans* romance are fierce, passionate folks struggling to balance magnetism and self-sufficiency, trying to love all the way to the core without losing themselves in the process. You will be rooting for them to get it on and fall for each other. I hope you read the book and fall for them too."
