Kicking Horse Culture will be presenting a special Mother’s Day concert when acclaimed pianist Sarah Hagen performs at the Golden Civic Centre on May 12. Chamber Music with Sarah Hagen & friends will be an afternoon filled with great music along with tea and cake as Hagen plays the grand piano at the Civic Centre.
Hagen has been described as a visionary and an idealist whose performances are conceptually innovative.
She is the Artistic Director for Pro’ject Sound, a performance project involving live piano with large-scale projected images. An avid collaborator, Hagen has performed with Ariel Barnes, Trio Accord, Ballet Victoria, Rebecca Wenham, Larry Knopp, the Emily Carr String Quartet, Ian Peaston, Marit Sjödin, Per Johansson, Vaida Rozinskaite, among many others, and recently appeared as soloist with the Victoria Symphony.
Her primary teachers and mentors throughout her career have been Jamie Parker, Glen Montgomery, Gregory Chaverdian and Christine Purvis.
Since her move in 2011 to an artist loft in one of Vancouver’s most vibrant neighbourhoods, she has become deeply involved with intricate projects inspired by urban vitality.
