Katzman Lounge in Vanier Hall is the setting for two events this week featuring violinist Jeanne Lamon, chief artistic director of the Toronto-based baroque orchestra Tafelmusik.
Music director of Tafelmusik from 1981 until her retirement earlier this year, Lamon has been praised by critics in Europe and North America for her strong musical leadership. In addition to her work with Tafelmusik, she regularly guest directs symphony orchestras in North America and abroad.
The Humanities Research Group is hosting her for:
- a presentation entitled “Leadership and Creativity: An Evening with Jeanne Lamon,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 20, with a reception to follow; and
- a demonstration on baroque music and styles at 10 a.m. Friday, November 21. Attendees will also enjoy a continental breakfast.
Admission to both events is free.
