Thomas' Canada Day Performance featured on CBC

On July 1st, the Vancouver Maritime Museum presented a very special commemorative performance from the Borealis String Quartet. This event was the brainchild of Thomas Beckman and featured his compositions along with the works of 9 other Canadian composers honouring the St. Roch's historic voyage.

I had the privilege to record this performance as it took place below the hull of the ship. The quartet performed exquisitely and I was very pleased to discover a week later that the recordings had aired on CBC Radio One's "North By Northwest".
