2010 One-Year Countdown Celebration kicks off with Sarah McLachlan
Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan headlines a stellar all-Canadian program for a concert to celebrate the official one-year countdown to the 2010 Winter Games. On Feb. 12, 2009, Vancouver's Queen Elizabeth Theatre welcomes the Juno and Grammy award winning musician, who will perform songs from her 20-year multi-platinum recording career.
The evening program, which begins at 7:30 PM, also features the alternative rock of Halifax singer and songwriter Joel Plaskett; the dynamic young Canadian violinist Adrian Anantawan; and Alberta Ballet’s performance of If -- an excerpt from the 2007 ballet The Fiddle and Drum by Joni Mitchell and choreographer Jean Grand-Maître.
Tickets for the One-Year Countdown Celebration go on sale Saturday, Nov. 1, 2008 at www.vancouver2010.com/culturalolympiad.
