Join us for the Western Canadian premiere of the Children of Willesden Lane. This one woman show by Grammy nominated, internationally acclaimed concert pianist Mona Golabek, illustrates how music can bring light and hope to even the darkest of times.

Combining vivid storytelling and masterful performances of classics by Bach, Beethoven, and Rachmaninoff, this is the story of Lisa Jura, a young Jewish pianist who is dreaming about her concert debut at the storied Musikverein concert hall. With the issuing of new ordinances under the Nazi regime, everything for Lisa changes, except for her love of music and the pursuit of her dream.

“Mona Golabek’s one-woman show is both a tribute to her mother’s triumph over persecution and a celebratory concert of life-affirming classics.” - Jim Burke Montreal Gazette
