Open Ears has a new look!

Just spent a weekend or two updating the new website for Open Ears, and it’s now live at openears.ca. I used squarespace, which works wonderfully for us. We’re coming up to our first mini-festival, which is also my first event as the new artistic director. May 31 & June 1 in Kitchener – check it out if you can!

Piano Ecstasy…umm…

Ecstasy is a funny word – I can’t always spell it and I can’t say it without risk of a giggle-frisson (unless we’re talking about MDMA – which is serious…very serious). Whatever or whichever, on April 26, I’m playing with eight other great pianists on six grand pianos in Koerner Hall, the most acoustically perfect hall south of Sheppard. We’re also playing Six Pianos, which is probably my favourite Steve Reich piece – who is sort of the Johannes Brahms of 20th Century North America. Pretty Great. Also, super cute piano image – find all of our faces in the piano! Special thanks to Robert Lowrey Pianos, who is ponying up the grands, if you know what I mean.
