The Walker Cultural Leader Series caps another successful year March 28 with a performance from Ensemble Vivant.
The group consists of pianist, founder and artistic director Catherine Wilson, as well as Sybil Shanahan (cello), Don Thompson (acoustic bass, vibraphone), Erica Beston (violin) and Norman Hathaway (violin, viola).
Championing a unique genre-diverse repertoire in their concerts and recordings since the group first came on the scene in the late 1980s, Ensemble Vivant has received critical acclaim for its work in the classical piano-trio literature, as well as for its forays into the worlds of ragtime, jazz and tango.
It has recorded for such labels as Fanfare, Pro Arte, Doremi, SPY and Opening Day/Universal and Opening Day Entertainment Group, and its recordings are heard on classical radio around the world.
The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre.
Tickets (not including GST) are free for Marilyn I. Walker School for Performing Arts students, $15.04 for adults, $10 for seniors and students, and $5 for the eyeGo high school program.
Tickets are available at the Centre for the Arts box office (905-688-5550 x3257) or online.
