An upcoming event

Canta Arya School for Strings (Suzuki) is hosting a brunch in the Grandview Room at the Delta Hotel next Sunday, October 29th from 11:30 to 2:00. Aqua Terra will be catering. Excellent music will be provided by the Canta Arya students!

Tickets are $60, and the funds raised will support Canta Arya’s Outreach Programmes. We are raising money to provide bursaries for students, and this year we are providing supplies and lessons for a recent Syrian refugee. Outreach projects include everything from community concerts and charity events to teacher training and supplies for Suzuki students in Zimbabwe and South Africa. In fact, one of our supported students from an AIDS orphanage in South Africa is now attending university for violin!

Please see the attached invitation for details. Questions or ticket requests may also be directed to Marilyn Broadhead marilyn.broadhead.

Please consider attending this wonderful event!

Thanks,

News from Karen Wallen

Just to let you know that I went in for an Echo Cardiogram and stress test on 3:00 Wednesday. When they were completed I was not allowed to leave the hospital, but was admitted to the cardio ward.

Thursday afternoon I had a angiogram through the wrist but because of small arteries they could not get the catheter past my elbow to put in a couple of stints. So Friday they went in through the femoral artery and put in 4 stints.

Today they released me on the understanding I will have a couple of days rest.

However they said I could start playing the saxophone on Monday but would need someone to carry the bag because I can’t carry anything over 10 lbs. for a week.
