citizensmall.gifFull disclosure: I work part-time for Citizens Bank of Canada as I build up my coaching business (hello dental benefits, extended health, pension!). But I work for them ONLY because I’m nearly as passionate about Citizens Bank as I am about Your Money by Design. It’s a virtual bank based in Vancouver that is sincerely trying to do banking differently – ethics, member-driven, csr and on top of that, great rates.

Right now, if you open a savings account and drop $500 in it – and the interest rate is 3.8% right now – they give you $30 and me $30 as long as the money stays there at least 6 months. It’s a great way to start up a nest egg, or emergency fund, or holiday fund…. saving is always good! Open your Savings account, let them know I referred you and you get $30, and I’ll donate mine to the Downtown Eastside Music Academy (a music program for kids in tough financial circumstances).

And now for something completely different:  these Opus picture frames, mint condition, for $15 each.  Retail for $70.  Three frames available – buy them all for $30.  Thanks,  10onWednesday!

Delirio Amoroso: Handel’s Italian Years

St. James Church (Gore & Cordova)

Free admission

As a 20-year old musical hopeful, Georg Händel (he hadn’t anglicized his name yet) took a trip to Italy to find out what was going on in that musical world. The Italians were singing (what else?), and the young composer quickly adopted an exuberant operatic style. “Il Delirio Amoroso” was one of three cantatas he composed at that time. In this concert you’ll not only hear what Händel wrote, but also what he heard. Music by Handel interspersed with Stradella, Corelli, and Perti.

Mamma mia, bring on the pasta. You’ll love it!

Pacific Baroque Orchestra with Alexander Weimann, harpsichord and guest leader; Chloe Meyers, violin; and Washington McClain, oboe

Friday, October 26, 7.30 PM • Free Admission
