In 1817, the 20 year old Franz Schubert wrote a song for voice and piano about a fish. Two years later, he created a set of variations from this delightful theme which became the 4th movement of his immortal quintet nicknamed “The Trout”. Four friends and colleagues from the KW Symphony strings section joined by Catherine Robertson on piano bring you this loved work.

Fretz lecture.

The idea that Mennonites moved across the Russian Empire as settlers is not new. However, recognition that Mennonites frequently colonized land belonging to Muslims has rarely been incorporated into historical analysis. This public lecture with Aileen Friesen titled, "Fretz Visiting Scholar Lecture: Muslim-Mennonite Encounters in the Russian Empire" will explore that little known history.

Friday, January 26, 2018 — 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM EST

Speaker: Gurpreet Chana

Born in Etobicoke and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Gurpreet Chana "The Tabla Guy" is a mechanical engineering graduate from the University of Waterloo who now lives in and creates out of Toronto. His musical explorations stem from the diversity he experienced growing up in a pluralistic society. At a time where genres collided openly and playfully, he embraced the tabla as his means of being heard in those creative conversations.
