The Canadian Museum for Human Rights won’t open until 2014 but it has already had its first "concert."
The Canadian Tenors, famed operatic pop quartet from Victoria, BC, performed a pair of songs in the "Garden of Contemplation" in front of dignitaries and construction workers.
Gail Asper, director of the Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the long-time driving force behind the project, was ecstatic.
"I can die and go to heaven now," she said.
The four members of The Tenors said they were honoured to have been the first performers at the museum and looked forward to visiting it after it opens.
