SF Pride Parade 2018 - Friends of Canada and Mexico March (San Francisco)

SF Pride Parade 2018 - Friends of Canada and Mexico March (San Francisco)

Dear Canadians and Friends of Canada,

Prime Minister Trudeau reaffirmed that no matter who we love or how we identify, all of us deserve to feel safe and secure, live free from discrimination and persecution, and express ourselves fully.

MORE

We must continue to fight against homophobia, transphobia, and biphobia, and to defend gender expression, gender identity and sexual orientation rights.  I am personally committed to fight hatred, honour love, and defend human rights for all.

It is in this spirit that I would like to invite you to join me to march together in the  San Francisco Pride parade on Sunday June 24th. 

Please note the link here for the invitation/RSVP.  Please forward to your Canadian friends!  

https://sfpride2018canadamexico.eventbrite.com

The march will begin around 11:00am, at the Embarcadero, and will end at San Francisco City Hall, at around 14:00.  Please join me, and together, we can build a world where all of us are free to be who we are and love who we love. 

Dress comfortably, colourfully, bring your friends, family, your dogs…and your bottle of water.  The exact departure point will be communicated very soon – look for Canadian rainbow flags.

For the first time this year, we will be joining the Mexican Consulate as a demonstration of North American solidarity!

Looking forward to meeting you!

Rana Sarkar
Consul General
San Francisco

Red Violin, with Composer Joshua Bell, and live orchestra (and Canadian Director, François Girard) at Festival Napa Valley

Red Violin, with Composer Joshua Bell, and live orchestra (and Canadian Director, François Girard) at Festival Napa Valley

First Republic Bank Stage at Lincoln Theater

World Premiere! Joshua Bell performs the Red Violin with live orchestra while film is screened. Special appearance by the Red Violin's director, Canadian filmmaker François Girard.

MORE

Arguably the world’s most famous violinist, Joshua Bell returns to Festival Napa Valley to perform the beautiful music he recorded for the Academy Award-winning 1998 film, The Red Violin. Audiences will enjoy a truly immersive experience: watching the gripping film on screen while, for the first time, Bell performs composer John Corigliano’s lush, Oscar-winning score in its entirety with orchestra.

The Red Violin follows a mysterious antique violin as it travels through four centuries, impacting all who come in contact with it — from its creation by a legendary violinmaker in 1681 Cremona, Italy — to a present-day auction house, where it draws the eye of an expert appraiser (played by Samuel L. Jackson). Festival Orchestra NAPA performs with Bell under the baton of esteemed conductor Michael Stern. Making tonight’s concert particularly special is the appearance of the film’s director, Canadian filmmaker François Girard, and Corigliano, who celebrates his 80th birthday this year.

Tickets required.
