A Little Night Music Under the Dome

Amazon Lily

Our next great event is booked! After the fun of Rumble in the Jungle held in January, we couldn’t wait to plan our next party to support Bloedel!  A Little Night Music will be held at the Conservatory April 28, at 7:30 pm.

Enjoy classic melodies of the Coast Trio, viola sensation Nathaniel Wong and Opera soprano Lucy Smith while you sip champagne and nibble exotic Xoxolat chocolates. What a perfect way to soak up the stunning evening ambiance of our own tropical rainforest atop Little Mountain at Queen Elizabeth Park! If you have never been in the Conservatory at night, it is truly magical and should not be missed. A Little Night Music will be a perfect after dinner event while you enjoy one of Vancouver’s most iconic public garden treasures.

Red Macaw
