Vancouver Recital Society

April 11th, 2012 @ 1:49pm by Michelle Kim

I recently had a conversation with some fellow 30-something Vancouverites about how our generation doesn’t really listen to classical music, nor are we ever really exposed to it (except for maybe piano lessons as a kid), nor do we really “get” it.
