After finishing up all the dry grad events this year, it’s official... Summer has arrived (somewhat). We’ve already jumpstarted the season with The International Jazz Festival. They have some big names added to this year’s itinerary- George Benson, who performed last Saturday at Queen E. and Nikki Yanofsky returns to Vancouver on July 3! There will be performers at different venues, so if you don’t see us at Granville Island, you can catch us at the David Lam Park or the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. For free shows, click on the link . As you all know, with summer, comes the Cirque du Soleil and we are proud to announce that this year, we will be a part of this event. They have called it Kooza that “tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world”, exploring themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. A theme, I believe, we can all relate to on some level. We are excited to be involved with such an elaborate production and look forward to making it a successful one. Although we’re not seeing much sun, it’s going to be a bright and busy summer for us.
