Until April 2017
New Exhibit at the Mennonite Archives of Ontario:
“Conchies Speak: Ontario Mennonites in Alternative Service.”
During the Second World War, 2,600 Ontario Mennonite men served in conscientious objector work camps. Through archival records, this exhibit recovers their voices and stories.
Tesatawiyat (Come in) is a community photography project led by Bryce Kanbara and photographer Mina Ao, with members of the Aboriginal community in the Hamilton area sharing their stories in their homes.
Join us for Grebel Student Council's production of "The Music Man" by Meredith Willson.
In celebration of Canada’s 150th, we have chosen music written by Canadian composers and inspired by the country’s landscape and wildlife, and by the various cultural heritages of its indigenous and immigrant peoples. You will hear both tender and rollicking versions of Newfoundland and prairie folksongs, along with gentle and glorious music by our established and emerging composers, inspired by their own cultural heritages and by their Canadian home. We even tip our hat to what should be our national bird (sorry, Gray Jay) -- the mosquito!
The Instrumental Chamber Ensembles are groups of talented students playing a wide selection of classical chamber pieces, from Dvorak to Beethoven. We have 5 different groups this term.
The UWaterloo Balinese Gamelan Ensemble will be performing a selection of classical Balinese music.
Join the UW Choir in an exploration of some of the most inspiring and beautiful choral music inspired by cycles of light, shadow, and darkness.
The UWaterloo Jazz Ensemble will perform a selection of jazz classics, embracing the music of Neal Hefti, Joe Zawinel, Jim McGrath and more....
