Join us for the Western Canadian premiere of the Children of Willesden Lane. This one woman show by Grammy nominated, internationally acclaimed concert pianist Mona Golabek, illustrates how music can bring light and hope to even the darkest of times

Combining vivid storytelling and masterful performances of classics by Bach, Beethoven, and Rachmaninoff, this is the true story of Lisa Jura, a young Jewish pianist saved by the Kindertransport. 

Purchase tickets.

Mona Golabek’s one-woman show is both a tribute to her mother’s triumph over persecution and a celebratory concert of life-affirming classics. – Jim Burke, Montreal Gazette

An affecting, deeply arresting triumph. – Los Angeles Times
