Five fine Canadian artists will bring you silver keys, the green wood, the beginning of things, a resonant piano, and many other wonders for your delighting.

This concert will feature stories from Jennifer Ferris, Stéphanie Bénéteau, Tom Lips and Shayna Jones. Beverley McKiver will be providing musical performances and Kathy Jessup will be hosting. Artistic Direction by Jennifer Cayley.

Ce spectacle sera présenté exclusivement en anglais; toutes nos communications à ce sujet seront donc, elles aussi, en anglais.
