Lemon Bucket Orkestra “If I Had The Strength” Album Release with Boogát @ Danforth Music Hall, Toronto | NOV 4

Humans of Toronto! Join us on November 4th at the Danforth Music Hall for our official record release party for “If I Had The Strength” – an event not to be missed!

The Lemon Bucket Orkestra “If I Had The Strength” Album Release with special guest Boogát
Saturday, November 4, 2017 at 7 PM

Danforth Music Hall
147 Danforth Avenue, Toronto

Tickets

  • $28.25 General Admission
  • $39.55 Balcony
  • $56.50 Mezzanine – includes a signed CD
  • Availbale on Ticketmaster

Two years in the making, the album once again draws its repertoire from folk traditions and styles from across Eastern Europe. But unlike our two previous albums (2015’s Moorka and 2012’s Lume, Lume), which were both just collections of individual songs, “If I Had The Strength” explores a singular narrative line to tell a much bigger story.

“If I Had the Strength is an album about coming home, about never being the same, about the parts of ourselves we lose, the parts we gain, and about the prisons we inhabit or that inhabit us,” says LBO ringleader, Mark Marczyk.

With IIHTS, we have created a song cycle inspired by a century old Slavic prison ballad that tells the story of a young rebel coming home after laying it all on the line. The work draws emotional weight from our band members’ personal experiences with the Ukraine-Russia conflict, but it also highlights our dozen strong ensemble’s party-punk roots and attitude, developed and honed while busking on the streets of Toronto and around the world.

The new album also features a compelling list of unexpected guests; from beloved Canadian soprano, Measha Brueggergosman, to Montreal-based Latino rapper, Boogát, to a triumphant-yet-tragic 60 strong reading of the late Adrienne Cooper’s Sholem by the mighty CHOIR CHOIR CHOIR Weaving in and out of the prison ballad theme, the work takes listeners on an emotional journey exploring trauma and tragedy through the lens of musical exploration and communal celebration.

We look forward to sharing this experience with you all!

Teo Milea – pianist & composer (Toronto, Canada)

Teo Milea is a Toronto-based classical/crossover pianist and composer whose unique musical style speaks to the public in a cinematic way.

Teo Milea collaborated with The Opera of Vienna (Austria), he is the first pianist in the world invited to play his own music at the NATO headquarters (Brussels, Belgium) and even more, the first pianist to mount on the stage of The International Ballet Festival (Dortmund, Germany), interpreting his work.

Among his latest achievements, Teo Milea was the first solo piano artist to reach the Top 4 of the Searchlight 2016 contest on CBC Music Canada and the winner of the Popular Vote with his solo piano song ‘Irreversible’. He was also selected to give the Postludes performance after Ludovico Einaudi`s concert at the Koerner Hall, in Toronto.

Discovering Teo Milea`s music is love at first note. When you listen to his music, you`ll realize you have been listening to the perfect soundtrack of your life.

“Some very talented people can construct pseudo-narratives from music itself. Teo Milea has the rare ability to do all this with only the use of his piano… Milea has enough talent in him to become not only one of the next great piano players, but composers, too”.

– The Scene Magazine (Toronto)

Kurt Laurenz Theinert – live performing light & media artist, photographer (Stuttgart, Germany)

Kurt Laurenz Theinert is a photographer and live performing light and media artist.

His „visual piano“ performances are shown all around the world in Sao Paulo, London, Sydney, Berlin, New York and Singapore.

With the aid of software developers Roland Blach and Philipp Rahlenbeck, he has created an ‘image instrument’ (visual piano) on a MIDI-keyboard basis, that allows him to translate his artistic intentions into live performances while configuring time with light.

He creates pure visual music – live, abstract and space filling by using 360° panorama projection. There is no technical link between sound and image to enable a spontaneous dialogue between him and the musician. In his compositions and improvisations, he pries open the static properties of his projection spaces in favour of only those spatial correlations that can be perceived in the dynamics.

The Universe Vibrates by Florin-Eugen Zamfirescu @ TeodoraART Gallery, Toronto | SEP 12-24

TeodoraART Gallery is pleased to exhibit a new series of original paintings by Florin Eugen Zamfirescu: The Universe Vibrates, a narrative about the mysteries of the Universe and the artist’s attempt to understand and decipher them.

Florin-Eugen Zamfirescu: The Universe Vibrates
September 12th – 24th, 2017 (Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 6pm)

Opening Reception
Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 2 – 5 PM

TeodoraART Gallery
214 Avenue Road, Toronto

“The Universe Vibrates” – is a narrative about the mysteries of the universe and our struggle to understand and decipher them. The central character of the series is the “proto-scientist”, who I consider the real hero of our times. He does not possesses superpowers or magic tools. Humanity has never been saved by miracles. What we need is a never-ending curiosity, a thirst for knowledge and tools to help us understand and interpret the great unknown.

Andrei Feher

Board Chair of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, Catherine Copp, is pleased to announce the four-year appointment of Andrei Feher as the new Music Director, effective August 2018. Since the announcement in October 2015 that current Music Director Edwin Outwater’s tenure would finish at the end of the 2016/17 Season, the Search Committee has been working to find a suitable successor. Feher, chosen after a thorough 18-month long search, was noted for his conducting prowess and musicianship, as well his imaginative approach to performance, repertoire and community connection.

Copp commented, “Andrei impressed us throughout the entire search process. After his appearance on the podium, we brought him back for a deep dive within our community – meeting technology sector leaders, attending social occasions and an interview with the Committee. In the end it was a unanimous decision by the Committee and the KWS Board.”

Larry Larson, KWS Principal Trumpet and member of the Search Committee said of the appointment, “Andrei created such a wonderful energy and buzz during his time with us in November – a buzz which is still being felt by members of the orchestra as we remember his debut with us. He has the right enthusiasm and vision to see the KWS continue to grow and thrive as the jewel of the community that we are. I look forward to many wonderful years of music-making with Andrei as we begin this exciting new relationship.”

Born in Romania to a family of musicians, Andrei Feher began his musical education as a violinist in his hometown Satu Mare before continuing his studies at the Montreal Conservatoire when his parents relocated to Canada. In 2011, he began training as a conductor and, at only 22 years old, became the youngest assistant at the Québec Symphony Orchestra under the guidance of Fabien Gabel. In 2013 he worked with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Music Director of the Orchestre Métropolitan in Montreal, and in September 2014, Feher joined the Orchestre de Paris for a 2-year term as Assistant Conductor to its Music Director, Paavo Järvi. He made his debut with the KWS in November 2016 on the Signature Series concert Debuts & Bijoux and was extremely well received by musicians and audiences alike.

As Music Director, Feher will be responsible for the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony’s overall artistic leadership including programming and artistic direction.

“I am pleased and honoured to accept this position,” commented Andrei. “Having studied with Raffi Armenian, I feel a particular connection with the richness and history of the KWS. From my first contact with the Orchestra, I felt welcomed as if we already knew each other, as if I were part of the family. I believe that our future together will bring richly emotional experiences.”

“I’m thrilled to hear of Andrei Feher’s appointment,” commented current Music Director Edwin Outwater. “I met him recently in Paris and know he’ll be a great fit for the orchestra. I believe he will lead them with great musicianship, creativity and integrity. It’s clear that the KWS is confident in what it wants as an orchestra going forward, and I’m glad there will be such a solid and quick transition in artistic leadership.”

For the upcoming 2017/18 Season, beginning in September 2017, Feher will serve as the Music Director Designate. Already slated to conduct the performances of Ode to Joy in May 2018, he will also take the podium in 2017 for the November’s performances of Glorious Brahms featuring alto Krisztina Szabó and the Estonian National Male Choir.

Currently residing in Paris, Feher will relocate to Montreal in the coming year, and will reside in Kitchener-Waterloo during the season as he fulfills his duties as Music Director.

The KWS would like to thank all of our sponsors including: Podium Sponsor: BMO Financial Group; Programming Sponsor: Exel Research Inc.; Signature Series Sponsor: The Economical Insurance Group; Pops Series Sponsor: Heffner Lexus; Bridge to Music Sponsor: Sunlife Financial.

Pagini Romanesti

Pagini Românești este cea mai cunoscută și mai veche publicație a comunității românești din Quebec. Primul nostru număr a apărut în martie, 2001.

Ziarul a fost fondat de doi ziariști care au emigrat din România în Canada: George Sava, de la România Liberă și Mariela Chiriță, TVR. Ambii sunt absolvenți ai Facultății de Jurnalism şi Ştiinţele Comunicării – Universitatea Bucureşti.

Pagini Românești s-a remarcat de-a lungul timpului prin ținuta sa morală, promovarea valorilor de dreapta (justiție, liberă inițiativă, dreptul la proprietate privată). A promovat constant și în mod GRATUIT evenimentele românești importante, cum au fost concertele, piesele de teatru, festivalul de film românesc etc, din dorința de a le oferi celor aflați la mii de kilometri de țară, o bucată de acasă. A promovat GRATUIT inițiative lăudabile cum este cazul școlii Junimea Română. Toate acestea s-au făcut cu o pasiune fără margini și cu eforturi pe care majoritatea dintre dumneavoastră nu le bănuiți.

Anul 2015 a marcat și o schimbare: fondatorii ziarului, George Sava și Mariela Chirita au decis să se retragă din motive personale. Ziarul a fost preluat de Viorel Anghel, care a început să lucreze la Pagini Românești în 2007. Un nou site web, mai dinamic și optimizat pentru aparatele mobile a apărut. Ziarul Pagini Românești a beneficiat în mai 2015 de un redesign total, aceasta în condițiile în care era, în presa comunitară românească, oricum lider în ceea ce privește calitatea tiparului și a paginației.
