McMaster School of the Arts – Celebrity Concert Series: David Braid (Jazz Piano)

Juno award winning artist DAVID BRAID is among a new generation of Canadian artists making his mark on the international scene. Combining harmonic intricacies fundamental to European classical music and the spontaneity of American jazz, Braid’s original music engages audiences with a quiet, thoughtful, lyrical voice that does not conform neatly to any one musical genre. Born in Hamilton, Braid graduated from the University of Toronto in 1998 and was nominated for the Canadian Governor General’s Academic Medal. Recently awarded Jazz Pianist of the Year in Canada, Braid is also a recipient of SOCAN Composer of the Year, recognizing his output of over seventy works including compositions for solo piano, jazz ensembles and symphony orchestras. He is a Juno Award Winner, multi-National Jazz Award Winner and a recipient of the Canada Council for the Arts’ “JazzID Award.”  This concert is a must for every music lover!
