A New Era of Peace and a Peaceful Land @ CGR
Jul 12 – Oct 5 all-day

This exhibition, sponsored by Mennonite Central Committee and curated by the Korean Art Forum, collects rarely seen works by American, Chinese, North and South Korean artists. 

Responding to the speeches given by leaders of North and South Korea at an inter-Korean summit in 2018, this exhibition serves to communicate the following thesis: Peace is not an absence of war, but the living process of freely interacting with others and understanding their values and perspective, while realizing truth and justice.

Exhibit celebration: Thursday, September 20 at 4:00 PM in the Grebel Gallery. Registration coming soon.

Noon Hour Concert: ‘Being for the Benefit of Mr. Mason’ @ CGR
Sep 19 @ 12:30 pm – 12:30 pm

The Op. 39 quintet by Prokofiev is based on his ballet, Trapeze, which was written during his time in Paris. The strange, virtuosic, and sometimes grotesque music perfectly represents circus performers and carnival sights. 
Centred around the Prokofiev, our quirky program explores light and dark music by these four swell composers. 

Allene Chomyn, violin
Jody Davenport, viola
Ian Whitman, double bass
Jim Mason, oboe
Peter Shackleton, clarinet

Programme

Goplerud, Timothy (1960-) The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

Milhaud, Darius (1892-1974) Suite Op. 157b III. Jeu

Haydn, Johann Michael (1737-1806) Divertimento in C major P.98

Prokofiev, Serge (1891-1953) Quintet in G minor, Op. 39
