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.
Music Mondays has served as a launching pad for emerging talent since its inception in 1992. Our concerts take place in the warm acoustics of Holy Trinity Church, just steps away from the Eaton Centre. Our goal is to provide the highest possible musical experience to a pay-what-you-can downtown Toronto audience. Our audience includes office workers, tourists, retired folks, young children, the homeless, students and other musicians. We try to provide the best possible venue for emerging Canadian artists. The acoustics of Holy Trinity are very special – warm and inviting. The church boasts two fine instruments – a newly acquired Steinway “B” Concert Grand and a superb Casavant Frères tracker-action baroque organ. Musicians are invited to perform new Canadian works, involve the audience in the performance and push the acoustic envelope! To read more
