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.

Romanian Students’ Club is a non-profit student organization at the University of Toronto established in 1996 for us to get together and get involved in social, cultural and sporting events.

Since then, we have been through numerous activities together such as outings to Hart House Farm, camping at Elora Gorge, Romanian Camp near Kitchener, BBQs on Centre Island, meeting with the then president Emil Constantinescu, and nights with Romanian artists such as Nica Petre and Tudor Gheorghe among many others. However, our signature events have remained the annual fall and spring cultural concerts and the Christmas and End-of-the-Year Parties, events where people gather in great attendances to a resounding success.

The executive would like to thank all the club’s members for their ongoing support and participation in our events, as well as the Romanian community in Toronto for joining some of our cultural events and giving their generous donations.

McGill University Romanian Student Society

McGill Romanian Student Society
Societatea Studentilor Romani la McGill

The McGill Romanian Student Society is a society that aims to provide the Romanian community at McGill a place where Romanian students can meet, create friendships and have fun together in the typical good humored atmosphere that goes with the Romanian nature. Meeting a fellow Romanian student is like finding a sunken treasure in the deep sea; simply beautiful. We want to make this beauty accessible to the whole community. Whether it is the cultural innuendos, the merry atmosphere, or the witty remarks, there is something special about us that we want the world to see. While open to all students who have an attraction for our culture, the society is dedicated to representing the voice and interests of the McGill Romanian community; anyone that wants to help, has an opinion, idea, project is welcome to join us and get involved.

The association’s dream is to create a tight-knit community at McGill by hosting enjoyable events where students of common interest or background are brought and mixed together. Since most of us are at a home away from home, we also hope to create an atmosphere that brings back the kind of fun students have in Romania. In order to to that, we propose a series of small and regular events as well as larger and less frequent events. ‘Traditional’ events such as the year-opening ,,Balul Bobocilor’’ party bring a little bit of Romania to McGill by showing off how Romanian students start off the year with dances, food, drink and fun. Other events throughout the year include movie nights, laser tag, the ,,Romanian House & Club Music Party,’’ and the End of Year Party among various others.

Apart from good times, the association intends to showcase Romania’s rich culture for the entire McGill community to see. As an under-represented group, we propose to even the balance by participating in multicultural events regularly hosted by McGill and the SSMU. Be on the lookout for us because we may be hosting barbecues featuring the famous mouth-watering ,,mititei’’ or giving away ,,martisoare’’ near springtime. We also wish to share Romania’s history, traditions, and dances through activities and various interactive and fun events on or off campus.

This association was founded with hard work and good faith, and it is with hard work and good faith that it will strive to see its goals accomplished. Our team is made up of good spirited volunteers; commitment is encouraged, and all who are amiable are invited to participate. We sincerely hope our members find themselves within this association and enjoy themselves in creating bonds and memories to share as time goes by.

The Art of the Piano: Teo Milea @ Gallery 345 | DEC 4

You are invited to the Canadian debut of Teo Milea at Gallery 345 on December 4th.

The Art of the Piano: Teo Milea
Friday, December 4, 2015 at 8pm

Gallery 345
345 Sorauren Avenue, Toronto

Tickets are $20 regular and $10 Students. Cash only at the door. To reserve seats please write info@gallery345.com

For 24 years, during which time he learned to read and play the music of his classical mentors, Teo Milea has searched within himself to raise improvisation to the rank of composition. His memories, stories, moments of agony and ecstasy were all comprised in his first piano album On white… and black keys, released in 2012.

The album revealed through seven songs as being a pianist and a composer belonging to two worlds: the world of classical music and the world of new music of the 21st century. His entire work is based on interpersonal relations, the moods and needs of modern society, passion and desire to conquer new soul territories not yet explored.

Since the release of his first album in 2012, he has performed his own compositions in his native country, Romania, but also in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Spain, bringing dozens of colors to his audience through his music. The energy bursting out of his piano paints souls, fills emptiness, brings smiles.

Now, Teo Milea is paving the way for another premiere: his first piano recital in Toronto, with a brand new solo piano album, Open Minds.

“Through my music I met a new, honest world, smiling and with a radiating joy. I stepped into the world I had dreamed of and wished for, the world of open-minded people, the universe where fairy-tales are told through the voice of music. With Open Minds, my piano music enters a new dimension of sensitivity and perception; it is a call for tolerance, joy and friendship. My audience needs neither specialty studies, nor a musical lexicon to understand my compositions. My audience understands my message exactly and in real time, it doesn’t seek to decode subsequently what I tried to transmit in one hour of recital. My music is a targeted one, with instant effect. Music is a cure for the soul! (Teo Milea)

Teo Milea started to play the piano at 6 years old and graduated from the Music Faculty at the West University from Timisoara, Romania, in 2003. He worked as a répétiteur at the National College of the Arts at the Music Faculty and at the School of Arts in Timisoara. ‘

Among those who helped him as a musician were masters Gabriel Amiras (Germany) and Arkady Sevidov (Russia). At first it was classical music. He attended various national and international piano competitions for music lovers across the country and beyond, from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary or the United States. In 2010 he was invited by the Vienna State Opera to perform as part of the International Opera Festival in St. Margarethen, in “The Magic Flute” by W. Mozart. He also spent a good amount of time in Switzerland and Germany, where he performed in a duo-formula piano – panflute.
