Glenn Gould 905: A Triple Birthday Multi-Media CelebrationFrom 2:00 pm to 5:30 pm
Praise for Glenn Gould 905:
“What a lovely experience! You gave Glenn a wonderful present. I would not in the least be surprised to learn that he was there. I’ll bet he loved the performance as well. I strongly suspect you’ll all be doing it again, in the not too distant future. It deserves a repeat, actually many repeats!” – Lorne Tulk, Glenn Gould friend & CBC technician
“Thank you for inviting me to your outstanding celebration of Glenn Gould’s music and life. I know he was there, not only in his music which all of you played so eloquently but also in spirit.” – Marianna Schroeder, Nurse from The Idea of North
