Giving thanks with music

Valerie-Anne Rutter performed in Gibsons last Saturday, Oct. 5. The audience enjoyed music on piano and recorders in the sanctuary of St. Bartholomew’s by the Sunshine Coast based international performing and recording artist on her theme of Giving Thanks. Rutter’s selections included classics by Bach, Beethoven and Handel, well-known pieces by Cohen, Lennon and McCartney, British folk tunes, and an African-American spiritual.  Since it was built in 1995, the fine acoustics, coupled with its recently restored lighting and sound, continue to make this Gibsons venue a favourite of musical performers and their audiences.
