The Owen Hart Foundation is very pleased to announce, "An Intimate Evening with Sarah McLachlan" on Friday December 01, 2017 at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. This live music event will mark the 18th Anniversary of The Owen Hart Foundation and the work they do within the Calgary community. This extraordinary evening will punctuate The Owen Hart Foundation's 18 years of humanitarian service and commitment to helping those with limited resources, but with unlimited potential.

"In celebration of Canada's 150th Birthday the Owen Hart Foundation is highlighting outstanding Canadian talent by presenting Award Winning musician Sarah McLachlan. Sarah McLachlan rose to superstar status in the 1990s as an exceptional singer/songwriter whose mezzo-soprano vocal range set her apart, with a number of her emotional ballads included in several Hollywood movie sound tracks. Sarah McLachlan is not only a brilliant singer/songwriter, she is also a philanthropist and activist, starting the Lilith Fair in 1996, an all-female music festival designed to promote female artists. Incidentally Sarah McLachlan will be the first ever female performer hosted by The Owen Hart Foundation. This year the Owen Hart Foundation celebrates its 18th anniversary by proudly displaying our patriotism in hosting Canada's own amazing Sarah McLachlan at the Jubilee Auditorium. Her beautiful voice and admirable personal values have positively impacted our country in so many ways, including her recent performance at the opening ceremony for the Invictus Games 2017 in Toronto, founded and attended by the highly esteemed Prince Harry" stated Dr. Martha Hart; founder and director of The Owen Hart Foundation.

Sarah McLachlan is one of the most celebrated singer songwriters in entertainment with over 40 million albums sold worldwide. She has received three Grammy Awards and twelve Juno Awards over her career and was recently inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

McLachlan's latest release, for which she also received a Juno Award for Adult Contemporary Album of the Year, is the 2016 Christmas album Wonderland. Wonderland contains fresh and inspired interpretations of 13 traditional and contemporary holiday classics.
