Music & Arts in KW

With such good universities and so many arts students around, it's no surprise Kitchener-Waterloo has a very rich cultural movement. This weekend is no exception, or should I actually say, it's one of the busiest!

Here's a list of some of the events we have in the area:

Saturday, November 10th:
Sunday, November 11th:
Thursday, November 15th - Saturday, November 17th:
Saturday, November 17th:
  • Tango and Latin Dance at The Button Factory (25 Regina St S, Waterloo). Tango class begins at 8:15 PM. No partner is required! Door cover: $10. More info here and here. Coffee, tea, mate, empanadas and Argentine cakes and desserts available. This event is organized by our good friend Carlos Siri, and the food is catered by my wife, Gabriela. NOTE: Wear shoes that are comfortable and fit your feet snuggly. Leather sole or suede are the best choices as strong traction can limit your movements on the floor. A dress shoe with minimal traction, good stability, and a fairly low heel is acceptable. Street shoes with rubber sole are not allowed.
I strongly recommend you try to attend any of these events -or all. Also, please click on the hyper link above and read about Quilapayún and their story, it's just amazing. Former members of this group include the very well known Chilean singer and composer Víctor Jara.

This is just a small sample, and only includes the events I know of because of family and friends that are involved, so imagine!


  1. I would love to see Fiddler On The Roof. I remember watching it on tv when I was a kid with my aunt Gail. My sister and I used to belt out the songs...Matchmaker was my fav.
    Those were the days.

  2. "In Flanders Fields" cantada por The Renaissance Singers, por supuesto que me interesa.

  3. Muy buen post! Excelente guía!

    Ah, lo de tu iglesia es "free"?

  4. Si, claro, es una misa. Y te digo más, pocos coros de iglesia deben sonar como el nuestro. Sabés que no lo digo por mí, pero hay mucha gente que cantan en otros coros, y al menos tres solistas que están mencionados en los otros eventos que publiqué.

    Con este coro ya llevamos, si no me equivoco, casi 10 CD grabados...
