  • Start spring with a celebration of wine, food and wellness!

    When you head west across the mountains, spring comes a lot earlier.  The sun has more heat, and you can’t help but feel a re-awakening from what has been a cold and lengthy winter in the prairies.

    Here’s a great option for the April 6-8 weekend.  Head west on Highway 3 through the historic Crowsnest Pass, check out the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre or the Hillcrest Mine tragedy where 189 miners were killed in Canada’s worst coal-mining disaster. It’s a great drive and that will give you some perspective on life and provide many delightful surprises along the way.

    Set your sites on Cranbrook, BC  and the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino  for WineSpring,  a wine tasting and appreciation festival.   The resort partners with wineries and vineyards from across the Okanagan Valley and brings you the very best wines the province has to offer. The event features cool things all weekend long;  an amazing plated dinner (see photo gallery), wine-themed classes and excellent live entertainment.  The main tasting celebration takes place on the Saturday night, April 7th.

    The weekend VIP Package starts at $389/person and includes:

    • Two night stay at the resort for Friday, April 6th and Saturday, April 7th
    • Accommodations in a Lodge room (upgrades available upon request and availability)
    • Complimentary bottle of red or white wine in your room upon arrival
    • Admission to the Okanagan Five Dinner on Friday night featuring live entertainment by The Talbott Brothers
    • Access to all classes and seminars on Saturday; including (new this year) our Journey Around Scotland’s Scotch 
    • Entry to the Main Wine Tasting Event on Saturday night including an after party with Burn ‘n’ Mahn Dueling Pianos
    • Bellini Brunch not included in package

    Renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma to give free concert in Montreal’s subway today

  • MONTREAL — World-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma has announced he’ll give a free concert in Montreal’s subway today.

    The Chinese-American musician’s Facebook page says the concert in the Place-des-Arts metro station will explore connections and disconnections in contemporary lives.

    A spokesman for Montreal’s transit agency says Ma will take the stage at 2 p.m., following a multimedia presentation that combines music, art and technology.

    Philippe Dery says the subway stations often draw strong busking talent but rarely anyone of Ma’s renown.

    The 63-year-old cellist’s concert is part of what his website calls a “day of action” that will explore the topic of culture and its role in humanizing technology.

    Dery says the concert will be free and also live-streamed on the transit agency’s Facebook page.

    Violinist Christina Day Martinson on the ‘intense spiritual journey’ behind her Grammy nod

    Published

    on

  • TORONTO — When Christina Day Martinson left her house Friday morning to drive her kids to school, she didn’t expect to return home a Grammy Award nominee.

    But the violinist, who grew up in Saskatoon, is learning that one accolade sometimes leads to another. Earlier this week, her album “Biber: The Mystery Sonatas” was chosen as one of the year’s best classical recordings by the Chicago Tribune.

    The adrenaline rush of being praised by the newspaper was still wearing off when one of her colleagues phoned to share the Grammy news, while she was on the road.

    “I was screaming, ‘No way, really?’ Just all these superlatives,” the 42-year-old performer said during a call from Boston.

    “I was very excited — more excited than I realized I would be.”

    Martinson, concertmaster for the Boston Baroque, splits the nomination in the classical instrumental solo category with conductor Martin Pearlman.

    Their version of Bohemian-Austrian composer Heinrich Biber’s 15 “mystery sonatas,” written in the mid-1600s, has been praised for unearthing a deeper meaning in the pieces, which are inspired by the life of Christ and the Virgin Mary.

    Biber’s composition is recognized for its complexity, which involves re-tuning the strings of the instrument during the performance. With all 15 mysteries played over three hours — with two intermissions — the live performance is gruelling.

    “For me, it was a very intense spiritual journey,” she remembered of the recording made in March 2017.

    “Whatever you believe, whether you’re religious or not, it’s a very powerful story to be experiencing. And I really felt like I was going on this journey through all the sonatas.”

    Heading to the Grammys on Feb. 10 will be an entirely new experience to take in, Martinson said. But first she’ll have to explain what it all means to her kids.

    When she was celebrating her Grammy nomination in the car, her two boys, aged six and eight, sat puzzled in the back seat.

    They hadn’t heard of the Grammys, but they wanted to know more.

    “When I pick them up I’ll probably elaborate,” Martinson said.
