For March Wonder Sunday we look at the fascinating world of clothes. How are they made, why are they made in that way, how it's different from other generations, and how it can be different right now? We take scissors to it all and imagine a completely new approach to fabric. Come discover how what goes in doesn't always look the same on the way out. Wonder Sunday is an interactive, learning-based special event that happens from 1-3pm on the last Sunday of every month (excluding December, July and August). A theme, based on ideas inspired from our current exhibitions, is offered through activities and lively presentations for families.

As the Museum prepares to open its new exhibit on BC's gold rush, archivist Ann ten Cate will take a behind-the-scenes look at how the exhibit is being produced. The journey from the beginnings of an idea to a finished product is a long, collaborative process between curatorial, design and exhibit production staff - and there are inevitably a few bumps along the way. But bringing BC history to life for an audience that includes children, non-English speakers, and visitors with many different learning styles has been fun. 2:00 - 3:30 PM $5 admission, free for Friends of the BC Archives

B.C. Cadet Honour Band Concert - Victoria

#3 Centennial Square
Victoria, British Columbia
V8W 1P5

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

The 45-piece B.C. Cadet Honour Band is the pinnacle of achievement for cadet musicians, who have worked years to achieve a high level of performance. Many are multi-talented, playing several instruments or adding vocals to the concert. Competition to be part of the band is fierce and the experience is intense. Musicians learn a concert's worth of music in just three days and then tour the province performing each night in four different cities. Featuring music from Disney's Frozen and The Hunger Games as well as a selection of military marches and a special Pipes & Drums performance, this one-night only free performance by B.C.'s best cadet musicians should not be missed.
