Event description


Support your community.

This fall afternoon starts with a program presented by Steinway called Piano Legends, which might be one the most astonishing, remarkable and enjoyable piano events you have ever seen and heard! Thanks to a wonderful blend of science, music and film, you are able to experience some of the legends of the piano world performing as if they were in a live concert. Steinway’s Spirio technology allows you to enjoy many greats of the piano world on film as they are perfectly synchronized with a Steinway grand piano that precisely measures virtually every nuance of their touch and timing.

The afternoon will be conclude with An Autumn Flight Of Fantasy, a program of wonderful music performed by two of Ottawa's most sought after artists: Victor Herbiet and Frédéric Lacroix.

A coffee/tea and donut reception is included in your ticket purchase. Amazing silent auction onsite to bid on in support of the benefactors.
