With special guest Heather Dawn Taves, Piano

Heather Taves performs in classical, contemporary, and folk idioms as a pianist, improvisor and composer. She has recorded 5 albums. Heather is an organic gardener and cook, presents house concerts, and is involved with community sustainability projects. Initially emerging as a classical artist, her graduation recital from McGill University at age nineteen was broadcast across Canada by the CBC. Winning a Canada Council Grant to obtain her Master of Music at Indiana University, she joined the legendary piano class of Gyorgy Sebok, but simultaneously discovered her interests in world music, early music, and jazz. After graduating, she performed over 80 concerts a year while teaching at the McGill Conservatory in Montreal. Since obtaining her doctorate at Stony Brook in New York, she has served as a piano professor in Ontario, first at Brock University and since 1996 at Wilfrid Laurier University. The New York critic Greg Sandow has praised Heather’s path-breaking curriculum to help students develop their own voice through improvisation and community engagement. www.heathertaves.com
