Anna Vavilova, director of Steveston’s World of Music and Arts music school, will direct the evening, featuring famous masterpieces by Chopin (Vavilova and Pam Lam on piano) Brahms’ Violin Sonata No. 3 in D minor (Grace Tsang on violin and Vavilova on piano), famous arias and art songs (featuring sopranos Rowena Bridson and Caroline Jang) as well as contemporary guitar music performed by Ruel Morales.

The concert begins at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18 at St. Albans Anglican Church, 7260 St. Albans Rd. Tickets, $10, available at worldofmusicandarts.com or at the door (cash only). Proceeds go to B.C. Cancer Foundation.
