Not Your Typical Sonata to entertain and support a Rossland charity

Admission proceeds will go to supporting “Cycling Without Age”

An event this weekend is not your typical classical music performance.

In fact, that’s the name of Carolyn Cameron’s fundraiser at Mayor Kathy Moore and David Cornelius’ house this Saturday: Not Your Typical Sonata.

Cameron will perform sonatas for violin and piano, with each piece presented in a format that we don’t normally associate with sonata.

All proceeds will go to the local organization Cycling Without Age, which will usE the funds to buy a special bike so local seniors can use Rossland’s wonderful trails.

“I’m hoping to learn more about the organization at the concert,” says Cameron. “But I’m totally supportive of several aspects of this fundraiser. Firstly, I remember distinctly how liberating it was for me to have a bike as a child. It was literally my first set of wheels and it allowed me and my best friend to explore Saskatoon in ways that maybe we shouldn’t have.

“The second thing is that I applaud any group that caters to our growing senior population. Rossland can be a difficult terrain to negotiate for those with balance and mobility issues, so bravo to those helping our seniors get around.”

Cameron notes that city council is trying to create and maintain seniors programs. “As I am headed in that direction, and not to burst anybody’s bubble but we all are! I appreciate efforts to keep our seniors in this community.”

A quirky take on classic music, with a fine performance and great company will make this a charity event to remember.

“Just come to the concert,” says Cameron. “I’ll explain the rest when you get there.”

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Admission is by donation. To attend, please RSVP to
