Valley Youth Fiddlers Year End Concert—The Knot
Wednesday May 30th, 2018 7:00pm-8:30pm
Della Herman Theatre - Smithers, BC
This is the fiddlers' year end concert and they will only be performing the show one time, 7:00 pm on Wednesday May 30th at the Della Herman Theatre in Smithers.
The one-hour performance features 90 musicians, and was developed by the same creative team behind Alaria's Fiddle: Leslie-Jean MacMillan (musical director), Facundo Gastiazoro (art work), and Patrick Williston (writer).
Admission is by donation.
The show will be followed by a little year-end social gathering in the foyer.
The Knot explores the relationship between a young kite flier and her grandfather who finds quiet contentment in untying the tangles of kite string generated by the child. When his reputation for solving knots grows among the local children, the grandfather's yard becomes a social hub for kite fliers. The neighbourhood curmudgeon decides to teach the grandfather a lesson by sending the old man a truly impossible knot that would take several lifetimes to untie.
What does one do when faced with a problem that may take more than one lifetime to mend? You simply begin, and see what happens.
