Presented by the UBC School of Music
On April 7, 1952, UBC presented a new music concert of works by a great living composer: Igor Stravinsky.
Among the student participants in this event was H. Colin Slim, who conducted and performed in the concert as well as helped organize it. Since then, Dr. Slim has amassed a collection of Stravinsky memorabilia which he has now generously donated to the university.
From April 5-7, 2002, the university celebrates Stravinsky and the receipt of the collection with several events, surrounding the re-creation of the 1952 concert on the Chan Centre stage April 7.
The concert includes the Concerto for Two Pianos, played by Erika Crino and Brett Kingsbury, Masters of Music candidates; Duo Concertant for violin and piano, played by faculty members Andrew Dawes and Rena Sharon, and Les Noces, Cantata in Four Scenes, sung in Russian with student vocal soloists, the University Singers, piano faculty Robert Silverman, Alexander Korsantia, Terence Dawson, and Miranda Wong Wilkins and percussion faculty Sal Ferreras and Vern Griffiths.
Faculty member Bruce Pullan conducts.
