Robert Harris' Illustrated Musical Lecture #4 - Stratford Summer Music
Event Date: Wednesday Aug. 9th, 2017
Event Time: 11 am - 12 am
Host: Stratford Summer Music
Join CBC Radio host and producer, and Globe & Mail music critic, Robert Harris, for the fourth year of his informative and entertaining musical lectures. Originally inspired by Harris’ own 20-part conversations with Michael Enright on CBC Radio One’s popular The Sunday Edition, these presentations have grown to become a significant annual aspect of Stratford Summer Music’s programming. Each lecture, liberally sprinkled with musical examples illustrating key points, will demonstrate the impact that the titles and selected works have had upon music’s place in our lives.
Wednesday, August 9. 11am. University of Waterloo/Stratford Campus
Citizens of the World Who Changed Canadian Music
In the same way that Canadian musicians and administrators have changed the way the world makes music, musicians and administrators from around the world have done so for Canadian music. This was especially true in the twentieth century when European refugees from Hitler's Germany laid the foundations for post-war Canadian musical life: from Franz Kraemer of the CBC and the Canada Council, to Helmut Kallman of the National Library. Along with others 'from away' like Nikki Goldschmidt, Richard Bradshaw, even Alexander Neef at the Canadian Opera Company, these citizens of the world have helped shape Canadian music into what it is today.
This event is wheelchair accessible.
Cost: $25/Per person (+$5 at the door)
Location: University of Waterloo | Stratford Campus, Stratford, 125 St. Patrick Street, Stratford
