Cat's Eye: Sarah McLachlan School of Music + Black and Blue
She’s one of West Vancouver’s most famous residents, and now, thanks to the donations and support of another prominent West Vancouver family, the Sarah McLachlan School of Music has a stunning new home.
Last week, a special formal reception marked the official opening of the new school. Providing full scholarship music programs to less privileged students in Grades 4 - 12, this latest step helps bring to fruition a dream that started some nine years ago.
“I want to give as many children as I can the chance to know how it feels to find their voice through music,” said McLachlan before she proudly joined the student choir on stage to sing for the audience of invited friends and guests.
Also last week, West Vancouver’s Shannon and Emad Yacoub, of Glowbal Group restaurants (Coast, Italian Kitchen, Sanafir), hosted a sexy soiree opening party at their newest establishment – Black and Blue. This chic steak house now gives the restaurateurs a commanding presence along Alberni Street and turns the former business-y boulevard into one of Vancouver’s hottest see-and-be-seen streets.
