March 2022: Laura Koch!

ArtStarts is excited to announce our return to River Market in New Westminster! For the first time in two years, come to the River Market for a FREE, family-oriented musical performance by Laura Koch. Laura is an award-winning performer, musician and songwriter, and is best known for her leading of the folk-pop band, The Kwerks. She also created and runs an elementary school songwriting program called Snap-Tunes, in which she shares her love of music with children, inspiring a new generation of artists. Performances will start at 11 AM and 1 PM and will be ideal for ages 8 and under, though all ages and families are encouraged to attend! Seating capacity is limited and will be first-come, first-served.
