7:00pm
Pianist Sara Davis Buechner
Sara Davis Buechner is one of the most original concert pianists of our time, winning a bouquet of top prizes at the world’s premier international piano competitions. Noted for her musical command, cosmopolitan artistry, and visionary independence, Sara has performed as recitalist, chamber musician, and soloist with the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, and Philadelphia Orchestra—in venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Hollywood Bowl. Applauded for her “intelligence, integrity and all-encompassing technical prowess” (New York Times), “thoughtful artistry in the full service of music” (Washington Post), and “astounding virtuosity” (Philippine Star), Japan’s InTune? magazine sums up: “Buechner has no superior.” A proud transgender woman, Sara also appears as a speaker and performer at important LGBTQ events. For her Halifax solo piano recital, Sara Davis Buechner will perform works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Dana Suesse, and George Gershwin.
Tickets ($35 Adult, $25 Senior, $15 Student, $10 Child) are available in advance online at https://www.ceciliaconcerts.ca/concert/sara-davis-buechner/ or by calling 902-423-0143.

YouthProject

Noon
YouthProject Brunch Fundraiser' POSTPONED
Originally scheduled for Sunday, November 18, 2018, the Youth Project’s 14th Annual Auction & Brunch – our largest fundraiser of the year, which fully funds our three summer camps – has been postponed to the spring of 2019.
In consultation with our Youth Board, the Youth Project’s Board of Directors determined that, at this time, our organizational capacity is too limited to effectively host an event as vital as our annual Auction & Brunch on November 18.
All tickets purchased for November 18th’s event will be refunded immediately. Details about our rescheduled event will be announced in the coming months – keep in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Trans Day of Remembrance Flag Raising
Join together as a community in solidarity for the raising of the transgender flag in honour of Transgender Day of Remembrance and a reading of a Mayoral proclamation.
Where: The Grand Parade (the public parade square) in front of City Hall, 1841 Argyle St. The ceremonial flag pole is to the right of the cenotaph when facing City Hall.
Transgender Day of Remembrance was set aside to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The event is held in November to honor Rita Hester, whose murder on November 28th, 1998 kicked off the “Remembering Our Dead” web project and a San Francisco candlelight vigil in 1999.
