What Would Glenn Gould Do?

We are gearing up for our first ever Co:Lab event on September 8, organized around a performance of "Uninvited Guests", a remix of Glenn Gould's music by Billy Iannaci and Andrew Testa that promises to cast the iconic figure in a new light.

Joined by retired CBC producer David Jaeger and Faye Perkins on behalf of the Glenn Gould Estate, explore collaborative opportunities inspired by Gould's futurist vision of artists and audiences in a casual setting.

On September 26, our roundtable raises the question: "What does sustainability in the arts look like to you?" Your perspective will drive our efforts in tackling the most pressing challenges for the performing arts.

Spend more time as an audience member? Don't miss the two indie opera show this month, and Alison Melville's 8-week course on early music.

I look forward to the conversations happening throughout this month!
