Events and performers

Nature displays, games and events hosted by Stanley Park Ecology Society including naturalist-led wildlife trail walks and mural art workshops at the Nature House, plus musical performances at the Lost Lagoon stage and roving entertainers.


Glittering Kingdom

Glittering Kingdom spins a sparkly web of sonic alchemy, slack-lining between lonely circus swing, jazz, folk-noir and post-apocalyptic acoustic. This group twists and braids fine harmonies amidst guitar, violin, musical saw, harmonica, kazoo and tinkly percussion. 


Late Thaw

Late Thaw, an acoustic band based in Vancouver showcases original music written by singer-songwriters Kate Main and Warren Murfitt. They are backed by Bruce Clausen on mandolin, Chris Murphy on banjo and Simon Kendall on piano.  With a sound steeped in country and bluegrass, Murfitt and Main create new music with a traditional foundation rich in honkytonk, heartache and harmonies.


City Opera

City Opera Vancouver announces Pauline, a chamber opera based on the life and final days of Canadian writer, poet, and actress Pauline Johnson. The music for Pauline will be written by Tobin Stokes, and the libretto by Margaret Atwood. Workshop pieces from the opera, that will premiere in May 2014, will be performed by mezzo-soprano Rose-Ellen Nichols, David Boothroyd on keyboard with Charles Barber narrating at the Lost Lagoon stage.
