Solo Recital at Brandon University in Canada
10 Canadian Premieres! Multiple GRAMMY® Award-nominated pianist Nadia Shpachenko will present the Canadian Premiere of works from her upcoming CD in a special pre-release concert at Brandon University School of Music’s Lorne Watson Recital Hall. Shpachenko will perform works from her new World Premieres album Quotations and Homages, to be released by Reference Recordings on April 6, 2018.
