"The Travelling Cellist" at Scarborough Civic Centre

Today Dad and I went to see "The Travelling Cellist".

In the book The Cellist of Sarajevo, a cellist plays Albinoni's Adagio for 22 days to remember 22 people who died while waiting in line to buy bread.

The Toronto Public Library and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra are putting on 22 performances of Albinoni's Adagio from March 17 - April 7. It's a part of the Keep Toronto Reading Festival.

Today's was at the Scarborough Civic Centre.

We got there early and it was nice to be there without it being for a flu shot! It's actually pretty nice in there.

There's even a buggy in the Rotunda.

Marie Gélinas played beautifully!
I was so into the music that I forgot to take pictures but my Dad remembered.
