On the evening of June 26, 2020, in honour of Italian Heritage Month and to officially launch the virtual music series of Italian Day on the Drive for Courage, a special ceremony and music concert will be live-streamed and available for viewing via the live-stream link noted above. Vancouver City Hall will also be illuminated in green, white and red to mark the occasion.
Inspired by Italy’s message of courage, delivered by uplifting music and song coming from balconies and rooftops during its COVID crisis, this performance marks the first of the virtual summer concert series, which will run throughout July and August. Italian Day on The Drive for Courage will embrace themes of hope, courage, and love – and how ’together we can make a difference’, while spreading healing within our community. A primary component of the initiative will also be to bring awareness to mental health and our community’s most vulnerable, and to build on the courage message, while driving donations to partnering organization, Coast Mental Health, and their fundraising campaign – Spread Courage, Not Fear.
Join us via LIVE-STREAM link below @ 9pm June 26:
