Müzewest Concerts announces new RUSH HOUR series

It’s Friday night. You’ve just finished a long week at work or school.  Many concerts start a bit later – at around 8 PM.  That can make for a fairly late evening!

At Müzewest, we have partnered with Tom Lee Music to present something new here in Vancouver. The Rush Hour Series.  Come for a shorter concert right after work or school at 6 PM and then you have time to grab a nice dinner with friends – or (let’s face it) head home to relax and rewatch Game of Thrones!

At our concert, you can expect a savoury snack, a refreshing beverage, and a memorable performance.
