Get tickets fast if you want to enjoy Shadbolt Centre's season-opening offerings

Shadbolt Centre for the Arts will definitely be the place to be for music lovers this month.

The 2019/20 season kicks off next week with a sold-out Live at the ’Bolt show on Friday, Sept. 20 featuring Kasandra Flamenco.

On Tuesday, Sept. 24, you can stop in for the opening concert in the Sound Bites series, which features coffee and refreshments along with top-notch musical performances in the Studio Theatre. The opening concert features the Vancouver Guitar Duo – British guitarist Louise Southwood and Canadian classical guitarist Stanton C. Jack – with their original arrangements of everything from Renaissance and baroque lute works to Brazilian sambas, bossa novas and Spanish dances.

They perform one concert at noon and another at 2 p.m., for just $5 in advance or $10 at the door.

Then, on Thursday, Sept. 26, you can enjoy the talents of Canadian singer Sarah Slean, along with cellist and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Fox. Their 8 p.m. concert was very nearly sold out at press time, so hurry if you want to try to snag some of the few remaining seats. It’s $36 for regular seats, or $15 for youth (18 and under).
