Heritage Vancouver welcomes Heather Redfern and Charles Barber to our January meeting at the Vancouver Museum. Heather Redfern, Executive Director of the Vancouver East Cultural Centre is responsible for managing the York Theatre and Charles Barber, Conductor and Artistic Director, City Opera Vancouver has worked tirelessly to have the Pantages Theatre become home to neighbourhood, community and professional art, theatre and music in the DTES, and across Vancouver.
On December 18th, 2008, Vancouver City Council voted unanimously to support a plan to restore and reopen the historic York Theatre. What a triumph for a community that has worked tirelessly over the years to preserve Vancouver's three historic theatres – The Vogue – The Pantages – The York. The decision has given new impetus to the community's determination to see the Pantages and the Vogue restored.
The evening is an opportunity to participate with Heather and Charles in a conversation focused on what it will take to have the Vogue and the Pantages join the York in becoming part of Vancouver's cultural landscape for years to come.
