Olympic Concerts and Medal Presentations in Vancouver

One of the best parts of having the Olympics in Canada, specificly Vancouver, is the amazing Canadian musicians who will be featured.

Those who haven't been following, there are two Olympic sites, Vancouver BC and Whistler BC. Both will feature a number of Olympics events and have musical performances daily.

Victory Ceremonies Daily Schedule:

■6:30 PM Provincial/territorial celebration live in BC Place
Provincial/territorial celebration simulcast live in Whistler Medals Plaza
■7:00 PM Medals presentation in BC Place and Whistler Medals Plaza
■7:30 PM Live concert in BC Place and Whistler Medals Plaza

Vancouver 2010 Website has a comprehensive guide to these performances which I will summarize for you here. Each evening begins with a provincial/territorial celebration, the awarding of the medals and a concert finale honouring the medallists. Vancouver presentations and concerts are held at BC Place, while Whistler's are at the Whistler Medals Plaza.
