Emily Carr String Quartet

Emily Carr String Quartet

Date: 
Saturday, April 1, 2017 - 2:00pm

The Seven Last Words (Die sieben letzten Worte) by Franz Joseph Haydn was commissioned by the Catholic cathedral for Holy Week, the week preceding Easter, in 1785. It was composed originally for string orchestra, and made up of seven sonatas plus an introduction. The seven movements were meant to express and comment on the seven last statements of Christ as he was dying on the cross, as recorded in scripture. The Seven Last "Words" of Jesus Christ from the cross are actually seven short phrases that Jesus uttered on Calvary that serve as an excellent holy week meditation.

Renew your complexion and shed dull, blah, dry or congested winter skin.  The change of seasons can trigger skin issues, so four times a year (at the change of each season) it’s especially important to give your skin some love.  The key to healthy, radiant skin is to also counteract the effects of the previous season and customize your home skincare rituals to meet your skin’s ongoing needs.  As winter winds down and spring arrives, there are a number of common skin issues to manage.  Skin may be puffy, dehydrated, inflamed, irritated, dry, or congested at this time of year.

The Royal Jubilee Hospital archaeological collection housed at the Royal BC Museum captures a rare glimpse into the dynamic world of 1890's Victoria.

This history is captured in the artifacts that were excavated from the site in the 1990's, from ‘modern’ medical treatments like opium bottles and mercury syringes to children’s toys and fine porcelain from Japan.
