Imagine you have been quarantines on a ship at Fort Lytton because of the outbreak of Spanish flu.  Experience a chamber music concert that may have entertained on the deck of a quarantined ship filled with returning WW1 soldiers.  The days includes tours of the Q Station, a d isplay representing the Isolation Hospital in 1919, an encampment of soldiers in the paddock representing the Military guard and chamber music from Yellow Bird Trio and Vivace chamber ensemble.
