Two international prize-winning Canadian musicians â€“ one established and the other well on his way â€“ share the stage in the finale of Mooredale Concertsâ€™ 20th season. Pianist Richard Raymond, only the second Canadian to win the Montreal International Competition, and cellist David Eggert, winner of the 2008 Antonio Janigro Competition, perform Sunday, April 5, 3 p.m. in Walter Hall, at the Edward Johnson Building, 80 Queenâ€™s Park Crescent (south of the ROM; Museum subway).
The Lorraine Kimsa Theatre for Young People is pleased to announce that the most recent production in Judith Marcuse’s trilogy of dance-theatre works for young people, EARTH=home, will be presented on the Mainstage from March 31 to April 9.
Based on three years of workshops with young people from diverse communities, EARTH=home explores the state of the earth â€“ where we are taking it and each other â€“ by examining global warming, diminishing resources, environmental sustainability and social justice. This high-energy, multi-discipline production incorporates original music, dance, theatre, humour and video to tell the tale of a group of young people who are forced to confront their very survival when they are trapped by a cataclysmic storm.
