About This Event:
Canadian debut of the
XV International Tchaikovsky Competition Gold Medalist,
Pianist Dmitry Masleev


“Musicality of metaphysical proportions” – Neue Musikzeitung
“Virtuoso brilliance” – Financial Times

Last season, Show One brought Toronto the first and only joint appearance by Lukas Geniusas and Lucas Debargue, whose prize-winning performances were the talk of the 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition.

Now the Gold Medalist makes his Canadian debut!

Siberian-born Dmitry Masleev has excited music lovers in his homeland, in Europe’s capitals, and in New York, Seoul and Beijing. With Maestros Valery Gergiev and Yury Bashmet, he twice toured Japan in his first touring season.

In January, he makes his highly anticipated debut at Carnegie Hall’s Isaac Stern Auditorium, in a year that includes a German tour with the National Philharmonic of Russia under Maestro Vladimir Spivakov, an Asian tour with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France under Mikko Franck, and many recitals and orchestral appearances.

Critics rave about his impeccable technique, sense of form, brilliance, lyricism, and spontaneity of style.
In Toronto, he demonstrates his range and sensitivity in Scarlatti sonatas, Beethoven’s Les adieux, Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 2, Rachmaninov preludes and etudes-tableaux, and, to cap things off, Liszt’s pyrotechnic Totentanz.

Experience the world’s next piano legend in his first Canadian appearance!

A Call for Donations: In Producing 'Quilted Portraits' of the Junction Community

A Call for Donations: In Producing 'Quilted Portraits' of the Toronto Junction Community
Image: Special Request to Junction Community Residents
 
Special Request to Junction Community Residents

Zalucky Contemporary, a local contemporary art gallery, is currently collecting donations of unused and over-worn clothing that will be used in an upcoming exhibition in February 2017 by Toronto-based artist Lili Huston-Herterich.
"I am interested in producing 'quilted portraits' of the Junction community through recycled textile materials that are no longer useable. So really, clothes that have been loved and worn to the point of rags - holey socks, stained shirts, ripped or torn garments, or otherwise are all fair game!

The final works will be photographic, and I will be acknowledging the support of all participating clothing donators (upon permission)."

~ Lili Huston-Herterich

Donations can be made directly to the gallery, through the front door mail-slot. Please make sure to leave your name and contact details if you would like to receive public credit.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the gallery via email at info@zaluckycontemporary.com.

Deadline: Sunday December 4, 2016

Junction Night Market: Your Community Food Festival: July 16

Junction Farmers Market: Junction Night Market: Fundraiser July 16, 2016
Image: Junction Farmers Market: #TBT: last year's Night Market! It's all happening again, July 16th!

This is the fourth year of the Junction Farmers Market hosting a Night Market!

#JunctionNightMarket 2016

A Community Food Festival to benefit the Junction Farmers Market Food Voucher Program

Date: Saturday, July 16, 2016
Time: 7-11 pm

The Junction Train Platform  + Pacific Avenue, just North of Dundas Street West
2960 Dundas Street West, Toronto, ON M6P 1Y8


$5 Local Food!
$5 Local Craft Beer, Cider and Wine

The 2016 Junction Night Market is happening Saturday, July 16th, 2016!

The Junction Farmers’ Market presents the Night Market on Saturday, July 16th from 7:00 – 11:00 pm at Pacific Avenue, just north Dundas Street West. This is an evening of live music, fabulous local food, craft beer, cider and wine in the Junction! Tickets will be sold on site. Beer, cider, wine and food is only $5.00 each!

Not only is the Night Market going to be an amazing community food event, but it’s also all for a good cause! All the proceeds will go to help members of our community gain access to fresh and healthy food through local food programs.

Last year, over $11,000 in funds raised at the Night Market went to benefit the Junction Farmers Market voucher program, administered through the Four Villages Community Health Centre. The vouchers are redeemed at the market – giving equitable access to food for those in need. It’s win-win! More members of our community gain access to healthy local food and our farmers are supported through greater sales.

Participating vendors will include prepared food favourites from the Junction Farmers Market, local Junction restaurants, craft breweries, cideries and Ontario wineries.
