Note: Change of Artist

Jean Guihen Queyras will be replaced by the 2010 Gilmore Artist Award-winner, pianist, Kirill Gerstein. Same date, same venue, same time, same price, same wonderful!

Kirill made his stunning Canadian debut at the Playhouse on the VRS 2004-2005 Season. Last year he was named the recipient of the 2010 Gilmore Artist Award, only the sixth musician to have been so honored.
