Havana-based pianist Aldo López-Gavilán almost defies categorization.  His piano solos mesmerized audiences at a sold-out Isabel show in October 2014 when he accompanied Carlos Varela.  Now he’s back for a solo show that will illustrate why piano great Chucho Valdés calls him "simply a genius, a star.” A portion of the proceeds from this concert will go to the Sonia Enjamio Fund at Queen’s to support Cuban and Canadian student exchange programs. 

Advance tickets: Students $12, Regular $15, at the door $20.

Professor Marc Epprecht will speak at Historical Visions and Revisions, the 2016 History Graudate Program Speaker Series at Trent University. His talk, The Native Village Devae in Pietersmaritzburg, South Africa, 1848-1926: Revisiting the 'sanitation syndrome,' will take place Tuesday, March 8 at 7:00 pm in Scott House, Senior Common Room, Trail College.

Julia Marsala (Artsci’14) is from a small farm town in Pennsylvania, so when she stepped into the megalopolis of Shanghai, with its more than 23 million people, she felt a little overstimulated, a little overwhelmed.

 “The sheer number of people on the streets – it was nothing I’d ever seen. It was culture shock, but not in a bad way,” she says. “The city and China in general forces you out of your comfort zone, and when you do that, you learn a lot about yourself.”
