View Barry Avrich’s celebration of the musician, Oscar Peterson in his film “Oscar Peterson: Black + White.” Avrich charts Peterson’s rise to prominence and his legendary proficiency. Peterson took direct action against racism, applying his musical gifts to the fight for equal rights. One of his most celebrated compositions, “Hymn to Freedom,” was performed at Barack Obama’s inauguration.

Join the WSO for a concert celebrating Black Voices. Oscar Peterson, regarded as one the greatest jazz pianists of all time, is among Canada’s most honoured musicians. Peterson’s Canadiana Suite, originally written as a ballet, will be performed with jazz trio and orchestra.
