Posted on: March 1, 2010

In Saturday’s (2/27) Waterloo Region Record (Ontario), Valerie Hill writes, “In what might just be one of the most ambitious and unusual offerings in its 66-year history, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony announced its 2010/11 season Thursday morning. ‘We’re very excited about our season,’ said music director Edwin Outwater, now entering his fourth season with the symphony. … Here’s a quick synopsis of what Outwater has planned: violin superstar James Ehnes for the gala opening; Measha Brueggergosman in a cabaret-style concert; prestigious 2009 Gilmore Artist-award-winner pianist Kirill Gerstein; a collaboration to create something new and unique with electronic master Daniel Deacon; and gothic children’s novelist Daniel Handler, a.k.a. Lemony Snicket. There will be a return of the popular music and acrobatic combo, Cirque de la Symphonie and a night watching Bugs Bunny on a giant screen with the symphony playing the famous and, according to Outwater, brilliant musical scores. … In a nod to modern technology, the symphony has also launched a social network where music lovers can connect and chat, see what’s happening at the symphony (, have their say and find information such as local restaurants, directions, parking, etc.”
