Mark Monday, August 29 in your calendars for the 25th Anniversary Gala featuring David Braid on piano.
Hailed in the Canadian press as “A jazz genius to call our own” (Macleans Magazine), Steinway Piano Artist David Braid was recently awarded Jazz Pianist of the Year in Canada. He has released nine recordings, garnering six Juno nominations and two Juno awards; he is also a multi-National Jazz Award Winner and a recipient of the Canada Council for the Arts’ “JazzID Award.” Join us to hear David perform on our new Steinway “B” piano, in a Gala Music Mondays 25th Anniversary Concert, presented by Steinway Piano Gallery Toronto. There will be a reception following the concert.
Joins us for Pride Part II this Sunday at 10:30 AM. A reprise of the True Colours and Pulse by Melissa Ethridge will be performed along with some repeated readings. New music will be there and our musician will be William Aide.
Our guest homilist on Pride Sunday at HT (June 26) will be MPP Cheri DiNovo, long-time activist for LGBTQ rights and an ordained United Church minister. Named by NOW readers in 2015 as Best MPP.
From her official bio:
Cheri has been a 40+ year activist for LGBTQ issues. She was the only woman in Canada to sign the ‘We Demand’ statement in 1971—the first demand for gay rights on Parliament Hill. In 2012, Cheri succeeded in getting Toby’s Act passed, an amendment to the Ontario Human Rights Code to include gender identity and gender expression–the first of its kind in North America.
