If catching virtuoso American violinist Sarah Chang and passionate French pianist Cédric Tiberghien in concert at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts are on your winter to-do list, it’s time to think about tickets. Subscriptions for the Isabel’s inaugural season are now available for purchase online, with significant discounts available for Queen’s faculty, staff and students.

“We are extremely excited about the Isabel’s first musical season,” says Jerry Doiron, director of the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts. “It will give Kingston audiences the opportunity to see some of the world’s finest soloists and ensembles in our extraordinary new performance space. These will be very memorable concerts.”

The Isabel’s inaugural season is divided into two series – the Soloists and the Ensembles – of four concerts each. The season kicks off with a performance by the Afiara Quartet, featuring pianist Maxim Bernard, on Sunday, September 21. They will perform works by Ravel, Schumann and Dvořák. It will also include performances by Trinidadian soprano Jeanine De Bique, the Zukerman Chamber Players and Quebec City’s seasoned orchestra, Les Violons du Roy.

Subscribers will also be able to purchase tickets for two special performances at a reduced price: a performance by the world-renowned Salzburg Marionette Theatre on November 19, and Theatre Kingston’s production of Venus in Fur, which runs from November 20 through until December 7.

Subscriptions to the Queen’s School of Music Faculty Artist Series are also now available for sale online.

Single tickets for all performances will be available for purchase beginning on September 2.
