Hot Sheet for the week of April 3, 2017

UBC Music Hot Sheet | April 3, 2017

“The design of a performing arts centre encapsulates everything I love and believe about architecture. Like music, a building must always respond to human emotional needs, especially our yearning for the next surprise or the next delight.” ~ Bing Thom, Architect of the Chan Centre
