Alumni Western Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

1878 Societies at Parsons & Poole
Friday, October 5, 2018
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Paul Davenport Theatre, Talbot College

Sara Davis Buechner Concert

It has become October's hot ticket in London: The Parsons and Poole Legacy Concert. Created by alumni to honour Margaret Parsons and Clifford Poole, the Friday concert and Saturday Masterclass brings world-class musicianship to Western's campus.

This year we are pleased to welcome internationally acclaimed pianist Sara Davis Buechner as the featured artist. 

Sara Davis Buechner

Noted for her musical command, cosmopolitan artistry, and visionary independence, Sara Davis Buechner is one of the most original concert pianists of our time. Lauded for her “intelligence, integrity and all-encompassing technical prowess” (New York Times), “thoughtful artistry in the full service of music” (Washington Post), and “astounding virtuosity” (Philippine Star), Japan’s InTune magazine sums up: “Buechner has no superior.”

In her twenties, Ms. Buechner earned a bouquet of top prizes at the world’s premiere international piano competitions — Queen Elisabeth (Brussels), Leeds, Mozart (Salzburg), Beethoven (Vienna), and Sydney. She was a Bronze Medalist of the 1986 Tschaikowsky Competition in Moscow and the Gold Medalist of the 1984 Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition.

Ms. Buechner's program will be announced later this summer.  

Tickets for the concert and post-performance reception are complimentary for 1878 Societies members. A limited number of tickets are available. Please register by Friday, September 28, 2018 to guarantee your seats. 

Complimentary parking will be available in the Talbot Lot.
