There’s no one quite like Montreal’s Lori Freedman.

A virtuoso, composer, and performer of incredible power and skill, she’ll perform a stunning solo show with vigour, intensity, and intimacy.  With music by Brian Ferneyhough, Richard Barrett, Raphael Cendo, Paul Steenhuisen, Paolo Perezzani and Lori Freedman herself, she’s touring “The Virtuosity of Excess” across North America, and Music on Main is proud to host her one-night-only appearance in Vancouver.
