ARC Ensemble Live at The Isabel Bader Centre

Celebrate the power of music and legacy at the upcoming performance by the ARC Ensemble, one of Canada’s most esteemed cultural emissaries, hailing from The Royal Conservatory’s Glenn Gould School. With three Grammy Award nominations underscoring their global acclaim, the ARC Ensemble is renowned for its poignant mission to unearth and rejuvenate musical gems that were stifled under the oppressive shadows of the 20th century’s totalitarian regimes. Their concert repertoire, rich with emotional depth and historical significance, offers audiences a chance to rediscover masterpieces that are triumphantly reclaiming their rightful place in the world of classical music.

This special performance is a heartfelt homage to the late Dr. Alfred Bader, whose centenary falls on April 28, 2024. Dr. Bader, an Austrian Jew of Czech descent, was a visionary in both the realms of chemistry and the arts, deeply committed to enriching the cultural tapestry of our society alongside his wife, Dr. Isabel Bader. Their unwavering dedication to the arts catalyzed the creation of the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, a beacon of cultural and artistic enlightenment. As the ARC Ensemble graces the stage, their sublime music will not only resonate with the audience but also serve as a resonant tribute to Dr. Bader’s enduring influence and his profound connection to Queen’s University and the broader community.

The event is finished.
