Sunday, April 24, pianist David Braid and the Penderecki String Quartet present: FLOW at the Art Gallery of Swift Current.


Steinway Piano Artist and multiple Juno award winning Canadian composer, David Braid, is thrilled to collaborate with the Penderecki String Quartet who are celebrating their 30th anniversary as one of Canada's greatest string quartets.  The goal of their performances is to provide a sensual experience of sound that is artistically presented, narrative-driven, and rendered in the most beautiful colours of strings and piano. They want their program to "get under your skin" in a fresh way that engages and complements your imagination.
Inspired by Werner Herzog's "Cave of Forgotten Dreams", a central part of their program is Braid's provocative composition, "Chauvet", a deeply felt work that expresses the astounding mysteries behind the 33,000-year-old paintings recently discovered in central France.
This performance is made possible through funds from the Canada Council for the Arts Touring Office.  Please join the Art Gallery  for this fantastic show featuring David Braid on our beautiful Baldwin grand piano.
Doors open at the Art Gallery at 2:30 p.m., with the show at 3 p.m. Tickets: $20 adults, $10 students & children available at Pharmasave. Coffee, tea, and snacks are complementary.
