Mom and I went to Malvern Library to see "The Travelling Cellist".
The Toronto Public Library and the TSO are doing 22 performances of Albinoni's Adagio from March 17 - April 7 as part of the Keep Toronto Reading Festival. They chose this piece because in the book The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway, the cellist played it everyday for 22 days to remember 22 people who died while waiting in line for bread.
Today, Marie Gélinas played and it was wonderful!
Each time I hear Albinoni's Adagio, I love it more and more!
Here are some pictures from today.
When Marie was finished she posed for a picture with me.
