WJO Presents: Night Train - A Tribute to Oscar Peterson at the WAG

  • Winnipeg Art Gallery 300 Memorial Boulevard Winnipeg Canada (map)

Two Showtimes: 2:00pm  •  7:30pm

Oscar Peterson was renowned world-wide for his flawless technique, impeccable taste, and hard driving swing. A relentless perfectionist, Peterson could play in a quietly understated way or at jaw-dropping virtuosic speed, making him the perfect centerpiece for Jazz at the Philharmonic, and a sought-after sideman as evidenced by the 200 records he made over the course of his brilliant career. The WJO celebrates Canada's first great jazz superstar with a performance of Peterson's Canadiana Suite alongside other songs he made famous. More info here.
