Vancouver musician and singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan will be recognized with an honorary degree from Simon Fraser University during the June 15 convocation ceremony on Burnaby campus.

McLachlan is available to the media prior to the ceremony, plus she will perform two songs during convocation. During her performance, photographers/videographers can shoot from an upper gallery, plus have an opportunity to shoot in front of the platform (first song) and from behind the platform (second song).

Media accreditation is required for photographers/videographers who want access to the front and back of the platforms. A registration table will be set up in the upper gallery on the south side of convocation mall, next to the platform, for working media to pick up their accreditation badges.

Check the PAMR site for convocation stories, and for a list of grads from Lower Mainland/B.C. cities/regions, please see http://at.sfu.ca/WXgKwb
