This looks like a fun event… as well as educational and musical. Some of my favorite Vancouver musicians are Heather
Pawsey, as well as the Orchid Ensemble with Jonathan Bernard and Lan Tung. Heather has been a repeat featured performer at Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinners since 2004. Lan Tung performed at the 2010 Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner with her jazz fusion group Birds of Paradox.

the snapshot: a casual after image of a fleeting moment in the recent
past. In time it can become an embarrassment (did we really wear those
close? that hairstyle?). Then, after generations, it becomes a relic, a
potent (and poignant) piece of social history and a powerful reminder of
who we were is always a part of who we are.

125 years. For more information click on Vancouver Snapshots 125 or download our poster!
