Fri, Dec 3 & Dec 10, 7:00 & 8:30pm
Register for these unique tours that combine history and music for an atmospheric journey into the past.
These 60-minute tours offer visitors the unique opportunity to take a tour guided by an experienced Heritage Interpreter through some of the heritage buildings at Britannia Shipyards. Inside three of these buildings visitors will see a live musical performance, reflecting the experiences or cultures of the people who lived or worked in them.
In the Murakami House, Natalie Der the former concertmaster of the Richmond Delta Youth Symphony Orchestra, will play the violin just as Asayo Murakami once played the violin she carefully brought from Japan in 1929. Dressed in a winter kimono, Vancouver musician Noriko Kobayashi will draw upon her repertoire of folk music to play the tsugaru shamisen. Upstairs in the Chinese Bunkhouse where up to 100 men once slept in tiny triple bunkbeds, renowned teacher Zong Cai Yang will play the two stringed erhu – an instrument with over 4,000 years of tradition in China.
Tickets are $20.00 plus GST and places are limited to 15 people per tour best suited for ages 8+ years.
