Spend the day enjoying the luck of the Irish with traditional food, Guinness and other tasty brews, stages featuring Irish rock, traditional Celtic music and classic rock 'n' roll, and an arts and crafts section. Children can have a blast acting like knights in the medieval Kids' Castle, and the entire family can learn to dance the Irish Stew and speak a few Gaelic phrases. Fill up on a hot shepherd's pie and a cold glass of Dale Bros. Brewery's Shameless McDale -- and you might even take home a prize or two from one of the many contests. Learn More
April's program opens with the exuberant virtuosity of Lowell Leibermann's Flute Sonata; a 1988 work written to explore the colour and technical ranges of both the flute & piano. Following Liebermann's sonata is Witold Lutoslawski's Partita for Violin and Piano - equally demanding technically - but with a force that drives the program into the realm of deeper substance.
The progam's nucleus resides in the 2nd half of the concert : Shostakovitch's Opus 67 Piano Trio. This composer's music speaks with a relevance that is both of, and beyond, his time. About the piece pianist Emanuel Ax says, "I feel that all mankind can respond to his anguish - anguish that hatred, whether racial or political, should exist anywhere."
