CONCERTS at the OSILAS

Welcome to the fourth season of Concerts at the OSilas!

This season we have three exciting and unique concerts, including an afternoon of African-American composers, an experimental meditation on New York, and a musical program covering a political cartoon theme.

The concerts are presented by our own Concordia Conservatory faculty in an intimate setting in the wonderful OSilas Art Gallery, where you can see and hear the musicians up close, as you enjoy the art exhibition in the background. Our concerts are both fun and educational, with the performers talking about the pieces they will play. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
