James Ehnes @ 40 Canada 2016 Tour

We celebrate the beginning of another season of fine chamber music with a recital by James Ehnes. During the year of his milestone 40th birthday, he is joined by the dazzling pianist Andrew Armstrong on a cross-Canada tour to perform beloved works for violin and piano and a new piece by JUNO Award–winning conductor and composer Bramwell Tovey.

The celebrations continue after the concert! James shares his insights on his illustrious career in a special event and reception, Reflections on 40 Years: Behind the Curtain. Enjoy complimentary light refreshments and a cash wine bar.
