“...astonishing...” (Stephen Pedersen – The Halifax Chronicle-Herald)

Close your eyes and slip into a fantasy shrouded in mystery, love and Scottish fabrics!? Award winning pianist Barbara Pritchard (Nova Scotia) conjures up surreal worlds generated by Canada's leading contemporary composers. Centred around Barbara Pentland's vibrant 'Fantasy' (1962), this program delves into the most imaginative of musical forms while reconceptualizing old favourites such as Chopsticks, Vivaldi's Four Seasons and Schumann's Albumblätter. Not your average piano recital, you can expect to hear three new works by @Monica Pearce, Michael Parker, and John Beckwith in addition to works by Peter Hatch and Paul McIntyre.

Tickets available at the door for $20 General & $10 Students/Seniors. Cash only.
