The Winspear Centre and Edmonton Recital Society Jointly Present Sara Davis Buechner in a Gala Performance

Edmonton, AB-On June 9th, 2014, The Winspear Centre, in partnership with The Edmonton Recital Society, proudly presents renowned pianist and crowd favourite Sara Davis Buechner in a special gala performance.
With an active repertoire of over 100 piano concertos, this award-winning artist has been praised on four continents and has appeared as a soloist with the world’s most prominent orchestras. In less than two weeks, Buechner will return to the Winspear stage to play pieces by Stravinsky, Mozart, Gershwin, and
Arensky, among others.

Buechner’s compelling live performances unmistakably demonstrate her passion for her art. “I wouldn't
say I was drawn to the piano so much as the piano swallowed me up,” Buechner shared with Vue Weekly
before a performance with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra in 2012. “It's always been a great passion of mine to make music and I'm very fortunate…to be able to do that for my life’s work.”

CBC will record Buechner’s performance on June 9th, and the concert will broadcast on Catherine McClelland’s In Concert on CBC Radio 2 shortly afterwards ( Tickets range from $20-$59 and are available through the box office’s toll-free number at 1-800-563-5081 or online: To arrange an interview with Sara Davis Buechner, or a representative from the Winspear Centre or Edmonton Recital Society, please contact Carmyn Effa.

Please note that this concert was originally scheduled for January 21st, 2014, but was postponed.
