Description

Tippet Rise’s fifth anniversary season opens in the Olivier Music Barn with a performance by the remarkable pianist Marc-André Hamelin. The recipient of seven Juno Awards and 11 GRAMMY nominations, Hamelin will play works by Scriabin, Prokofiev, Chopin and Schubert. The New York Times described the Canadian virtuoso as “a performer of near-superhuman technical prowess.” This is Hamelin’s debut at Tippet Rise.
