November 1 – 5
The Stampeders – LIVE!
Humanities Theatre – University Of Waterloo
No seventies group represented Canada’s musical identity to the world like The Stampeders. A quick look at Canada’s music scene from 1971 until 1976 confirms The Stampeders were truly the country’s international musical ambassadors, touring more extensively in Canada and overseas than any other Canadian group during that time. In 1977 the trio: Rich Dodson (lead guitar), Kim Berly (drums) and Ronnie King (bass) parted company but reunited, fittingly at the Calgary Stampede, 15 years later in 1992. Since then they’ve been recognized by SOCAN for their Lifetime Achievement, been inducted into the SOCAN Songwriters Hall of Fame on five occasions and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame for their 1971 seminal hit Sweet City Woman.

November 6 @ 3PM – 4.30PM
Nota Bene Baroque Players Concert: Fantastic Style
The Registry Theatre
Violinist Rona Goldensher, gambist Laura Jones and harpsichordist Borys Medicky trace the colourful musical journey of early Baroque composers, along with the exploratory works of Schmelzer and Erlebach.
