How does one stop a heart from bleeding? Through hard work, exercise, crying, anger, rage?  Or does one just try to pretend that it never happened?

I promised Chris an Alaskan cruise in the summer of 2014. He never made it. I did.

On the first night on board ship, I heard the exquisite strains of a violin. Following the music led to the Adagio musical duo:  Cristian Herki from Romania, on the violin, with a pianist.  Cristian is a world class violinist who plays with sensitivity , agility , depth and artistry. Each night listening to the music of Cristian, the healing journey began.

The Gallagher family wish to welcome Cristian Herki and thank him for coming from Romania to Vancouver to perform “Jewels of the Violin ” to honour the memory of Christopher Gallagher with music, beauty and love. Cristian Herki is a world acclaimed violinist from Romania. When he plays his 200 year old violin he tugs at your heart strings .

Cristian will perform a program with music from the baroque era through to the 20th century.

Joining Cristian will be Cathy Gallagher on piano. Joseph Gallagher will read a poem by Dylan Thomas, ” The Other Side, Letters to My Son”. Margaret Gallagher and Patrick Gallagher will host and MC this concert.

Through the transcending language of music, you will journey through an evening of tears and laughter. We hope you will enjoy this concert as a very special night to remember.


Ticket Prices: $20.00 (adult) / $15.00 (student/senior)
