What a night! What a privilege! No words just total awe. Yuja Wang, perhaps the worlds greatest living pianist, thrilled us all last night with a never-to-be-forgotten recital at the UBC Chan Centre here in Vancouver. She wrote in the program, “This recital will hopefully lift all of your spirits, sharing music written by many of the great souls who have lived before us.”
Be assured Yuja all of our spirits could not have been lifted any higher.
Remembering the start of Vancouver’s Winter Olympics when 10 years ago today Alex Bilodeau came flying down Cypress Mountain to win the Men’s Moguls Gold Medal.
Then in 2014 at the Sochi Games he became the first Olympian in history to successfully defend his gold medal in any free style skiing event. Congratulations once again to a true Canadian Olympic hero. 🇨🇦
Fifty five years ago today Canada’s maple leaf flag was raised for the first time on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. As we look back to Vancouver’s 2010 Winter Olympics this month what better way to celebrate our National Flag Day than with the maple leaves around the Olympic Cauldron in Jack Poole Plaza. 🇨🇦
On the 10th Anniversary of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics a lookback, with Sarah McLachlan carrying the Olympic Torch, street hockey, drumming on the newspaper boxes, and always thousands in the streets celebrating day and night. What a ride it was!
