Commemoration Day Sunrise Ceremony

Commemoration Day Sunrise Ceremony

Honour the Battle of the Somme with a sunrise ceremony tradition, hosted by US Branch #25 of the Royal Canadian Legion, representing the San Francisco Bay Area.

MORE

While the first day of July is a celebration in most of Canada, for Newfoundland and Labrador it is also a day for sombre remembrance as it is also Commemoration Day (also known as Memorial Day), when we remember the tragically destructive events of July 1st, 1916.

It is the opening day of the Battle of the Somme, when 806 members of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment climbed out of their trenches and went "over the top" at 8:45am as part of the battle of Beaumont-Hamel. In less than an hour, the regiment was devastated, most killed or wounded within the first 20 minutes of the battle. The next morning, only 68 soldiers answered roll call. Commemoration Day was established in 1917, just one year later.

After Confederation with Canada, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador continued the tradition of Commemoration Day during the morning of July 1st, and reserved the remainder of the day to celebrate Canada Day. 

The 45 minutes service will be broadcast on Zoom. 

RSVP here for live sunrise ceremony at 6am PST. 

RSVP here for replay at 10am PST.

Follow along with #CanadaDayInTheBay on social media and share how you are celebrating Canada Day.

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.

Dawson City: Frozen in Time at the SF Silent Film Festival

Dawson City: Frozen in Time at the SF Silent Film Festival

The Roxie Theater - 3117 16th Street, San Francisco

See footage from a trove of 500 films lost after burial in the permafrost in the 1929. Co-presented by the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.

MORE

This meditation on cinema’s past from Decasia director Bill Morrison pieces together the bizarre true history of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s. Located just south of the Arctic Circle, Dawson City was settled in 1896 and became the center of the Canadian Gold Rush that brought 100,000 prospectors to the area. It was also the final stop for a distribution chain that sent prints and newsreels to the Yukon. The films were seldom, if ever, returned. The now-famous Dawson City Collection was uncovered in 1978 when a bulldozer working its way through a parking lot dug up a horde of film cans. Morrison draws on these permafrost-protected, rare silent films and newsreels, pairing them with archival footage, interviews, historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Rós collaborator and composer Alex Somers. Dawson City: Frozen Time depicts the unique history of this Canadian Gold Rush town by chronicling the life cycle of a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation.

After a standing room only album release show, 23rd Hour is coming back to Angelicas on July 1st to kick off the holiday weekend. Leave your worries at the door and step into another time for one evening as the acoustic jazz-pop duo serenades you through supper. With a sound likened to Norah Jones, The Civil Wars and James Taylor, the duo's melodic originals meld seamlessly with their renditions of the standards, old and new. 

If you'd love to see great live music that comes with gourmet food, a good wine selection, table seating, a relaxing ambiance, and a volume that won't blast your ears, you need to get your tickets now! 

23rd Hour will be joined on stage by Marc Levine (bass), Brian Kunz (drums), Simmy Willemann (violin), and Anthony Paolini (saxophone).

From the band:

Our album "Perfect Strangers" peaked at #10 on the iTunes new jazz releases best-seller list and has received favourable reviews around the Bay Area and on blogs. The album was recorded primarily at Phase One Studios in Toronto (6 of 11 songs), with Toronto musicians and producers. One of the tracks is a French-English song co-written with another Canadian songwriter. Our first music video was shot entirely in Toronto. Although I am now based in the Bay Area, we love going to Toronto to make music and do so every year. We will be playing songs from the album, some new material and some covers. You can watch our videos and stream the full album for free on our website www.23rdhr.com

ZK Gallery, in partnership with the Canadian Consulate in San Francisco, is hosting a reception to celebrate the opening of My Wild Nature: Aurora Borealis, an exhibition of new paintings by Marie Catherine Péloquin.

Péloquin's paintings are based on her curiosity about quantum physics as well as her pantheistic beliefs about the universe. One can find at the basis of Péloquin's paintings a multitude of particles that appear to burst and harmonize the space. Her spontaneous "explosions" give birth to energetic pathways that exceed the frames of her paintings in order to signify a world that is in perpetual change.

MORE

Join U of T Engineering Alumni & Friends on June 23 for their latest California BizSkule event: Deep Genomics: Using Machine Learning to Enable Genomic Medicine with professor Brendan Frey. 

Deep learning will transform medicine, but not in the way that many advocates think. Biological complexity, rare mutations and confounding factors work against us, so that even if we sequence 100,000 genomes, it won't be enough. Professor Frey will present the “genotype-phenotype gap” and how the value of closing this gap exceeds Google's $200B ad market. Using machine learning systems that properly incorporate biological knowledge, professor Frey will describe this approach, how it has improved our ability to “read the genome”, and could be an indispensable component in the future of medicine. 

Gain insights from one of U of T's most enterprising professors on the future of machine learning and medicine, as well as a chance to network with fellow U of T grads over cocktails and canapés.

Northern California is at the center of the national debate around immigration. Comprehensive Immigration Reform has stalled anew, and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program's termination has created uncertainty for over 700,000 Dreamers. Meanwhile, rising anti-immigrant rhetoric and ICE raids have raised fears in our local immigrant communities. But behind the headlines, nonprofit lawyers continue to provide legal assistance to immigrants facing removal or seeking asylum before administrative tribunals and California courts. Hear our panel of local Canadians involved with immigrant legal services share their insights on how the current climate has affected their practice; what they have learned about our community; and how being Canadian has shaped their outlook. 

Helen Beasley, from Oakville, Ontario, is a Managing Immigration Attorney at the Community Legal Services of East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) and an expert on Children’s Immigration law; Cristina dos Santos, from Bowen Island, BC, is a Senior Immigration Attorney at CLSEPA and an expert on Humanitarian Relief for immigrants. The panel will be moderated by David Stewart, a McGill Law alum and a Digital Moose Lounge board member and CLSEPA volunteer. After the discussion, there will a Q & A with the audience and networking with other Canadians and attendees.

Thanks to our generous sponsors for this event: British Columbia Trade and Invest and McGill University. Also special thanks to Morrison & Foerster law firm for providing the space. Light food and refreshments will be available.

Bestselling author Guy Gavriel Kay returns to the Bay Area with a new novel, Children of Earth and Sky, set in a world inspired by the conflicts and dramas of Renaissance Europe.

Don't miss the chance to meet him at one of three engagements in the Bay Area, including this one at Copperfields in Petaluma.

More information >>

ABOUT CHILDREN OF THE EARTH AND SKY

From the small coastal town of Senjan, notorious for its pirates, a young woman sets out to find vengeance for her lost family. That same spring, from the wealthy city-state of Seressa, famous for its canals and lagoon, come two very different people: a young artist traveling to the dangerous east to paint the grand khalif at his request – and possibly to do more – and a fiercely intelligent, angry woman posing as a doctor’s wife but sent by Seressa as a spy.

The trading ship that carries them is commanded by the accomplished younger son of a merchant family, ambivalent about the life he’s been born to live. And farther east a boy trains to become a soldier in the elite infantry of the khalif – to win glory in the war everyone knows is coming.

As these lives entwine, their fates – and those of many others – will hang in the balance when the khalif sends out his massive army to take the great fortress that is the gateway to the western world.


ABOUT GUY GAVRIEL KAY

Guy Gavriel Kay is the international bestselling author of twelve previous novels and a book of poetry. He has been awarded the International Goliardos Prize for his work in literature of the fantastic and won the World Fantasy Award for Ysabel in 2008. In 2014 he was named to the Order of Canada.

ABOUT CHILDREN OF THE EARTH AND SKY

From the small coastal town of Senjan, notorious for its pirates, a young woman sets out to find vengeance for her lost family. That same spring, from the wealthy city-state of Seressa, famous for its canals and lagoon, come two very different people: a young artist traveling to the dangerous east to paint the grand khalif at his request – and possibly to do more – and a fiercely intelligent, angry woman posing as a doctor’s wife but sent by Seressa as a spy.

The trading ship that carries them is commanded by the accomplished younger son of a merchant family, ambivalent about the life he’s been born to live. And farther east a boy trains to become a soldier in the elite infantry of the khalif – to win glory in the war everyone knows is coming.

As these lives entwine, their fates – and those of many others – will hang in the balance when the khalif sends out his massive army to take the great fortress that is the gateway to the western world.

In this seven-section work, lasting just over an hour, Haydn is at his most reflective. Evoking the last hours of Christ’s life, the work’s individual sections carry tempo markings of Largo, Adagio, Lento, Grave. In this performance, and as it was written, Seven Last Words will be punctuated with readings from the Good Friday service.

At Stanford, the SLSQ is at the forefront of intellectual life on campus. The SLSQ directs the music department's chamber music program, and frequently collaborates with other departments including the Schools of Law, Medicine, Business and Education. The Quartet frequently performs at Stanford Live, hosts an annual chamber music seminar, and runs the Emerging String Quartet Program through which they mentor the next generation of young quartets. In the words of Alex Ross of The New Yorker: "The St. Lawrence are remarkable not simply for the quality of their music making, exalted as it is, but for the joy they take in the act of connection."
