The Calgary-born pianist, who recently accompanied the NAC Orchestra on their Crossings tour earlier this year, is joined by the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra for a performance of pieces by both Jessie Montgomery and Felix Mendelssohn.

Whether you are new to Ottawa (welcome!), re-acquainting yourself with town and campus, or just itching to get out of the house this weekend to make the most of summer, we have it all here.

These kids will hem and haw over the short films and TV episodes before they present awards to the winning filmmakers later that evening at OIAF Awards Ceremony the National Arts Centre.
