The Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts is going to take us on an adventure this year.

Members had the opportunity to hear Tricia Baldwin and Elizabeth Macdonald in conversation and then the opportunity to experience Italian folk music through the ages in October at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts.  In November, we get to experience classical music from the perspective of the next generation who has their own unique take on the great composer, Ludwig van Beethoven.  In March, we will be invited to a socially engaged, social justice work called The Mush Hole, directed by celebrated Mohawk artist Santee Smith (who is also the Chancellor of McMaster University).

We have been given the opportunity to attend the Beethoven recital by internationally acclaimed pianist Jonathan Biss on Sunday afternoon, November 17, 2019 at 2:30 PM.
Believer In Beethoven : Jonathan Biss
Believer In Beethoven : Jonathan Biss

“One of the most striking North American pianists of the new generation.”—The Globe and Mail
For a concert of Beethoven sonatas, the Isabel welcomes one of the great Beethoven interpreters of our time, Jonathan Biss. He is a world renowned pianist who shares his deep curiosity with music lovers in the concert hall and beyond. As the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth approaches, Jonathan Biss is recording the nine-disc cycle of all Beethoven sonatas. Winner of the Leonard Bernstein Award and the Lincoln Center's Martin E. Segal Award, Jonathan is both a beautiful and formidable interpreter of Beethoven.  Website here

The Mush Hole acknowledges the lives and spirits of Mohawk Institute residential school survivors. Keeping hope as the driving force the performance offers truth and relives the devastating impacts on the students and parents without their children. It is about survival, resilience, and is an embodied way to say: “Enskwakhwahshón:rien” – we will feed your hunger, “kwè:iahre – we remember you, kwanorónhkhwa – we love you. Conceived by Six Nations Artist/ Director Santee Smith, incoming Chancellor of McMaster University, in collaboration with Onkwehon:wen artists Julianne Blackbird, Montana Summers, Semiah Smith, Brandon A. Oakes, The Mush Hole opens the mind, heart and spirit toward a path of feeling and experiencing. We welcome all to share in dialogue and reflect on the performance. This event is for general audiences. Please be aware there are mature themes involved and not recommended for ages 12 and under. Website here

We are grateful for this wonderful and meaningful adventure in the arts made possible for us by the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts.
