The 88 Keys Grand Piano Society of Fernie presents this concert featuring award-winning pianist and composer Jesse Plessis, a native of Sparwood British Columbia.
Jesse is working towards recording and performing all 32 piano sonatas of Ludwig van Beethoven in the year 2020 (the 250th birth year of the composer), and this concert will feature the latest addition to his repertoire – the fearsome and tragic “Appassionata” Sonata, written shortly after the composer received news of the incurability of his impending deafness. Also on the program are the Six Piano Pieces Op. 118 by Johannes Brahms – touching musings on love, loss, and life by a composer in his autumnal years. Rounding out the concert are two of Arvo Pärt’s most beloved meditations: “For Alina” and “Mirror in Mirror.”
The concert starts at 7:00 p.m. at Mountainside Community Church, 1622 Tenth Avenue. Tickets are available at the door: $20 adults, $18 seniors (65+) and youth (13 to 18).
Wednesday, June 28 at 7 PM – 9 PM at Mountainside Community Church

Girl Days. It’s kind of a big deal in these parts. And this is the 40th Griz Days! Fernie has endless events scheduled from March 3rd to 5th. It’s almost too much. You gotta just pick something here and there and be alright with missing the rest.
You can find a detailed schedule on Tourism Fernie’s website:

There are no posters for Wapiti this year? Shocking. This is the best I could find.
