in Is­rael, Shai Mae­stro be­gan his piano stud­ies at age five and got his first taste of jazz at age 8 with the mu­sic of Os­car Peter­son. He moved to New York in 2000 and has per­formed with such high pro­file mu­si­cians as Ari Hoe­u­nig, and Gi­lad Hek­sel­man. While play­ing along­side Avishai Co­hen from 2006 to 2010, his per­for­mances re­ceived recog­ni­tion from his peers and the me­dia. In May 2011, Mae­stro de­parted from Avishai Co­hen’s band to pur­sue his own way as a band leader, com­poser and ar­ranger. The Shai Mae­stro Trio was formed fol­low­ing a ses­sion in a Brook­lyn stu­dio. The other two mem­bers of the trio, Is­raeli drum­mer Ziv Ravitz and Peru­vian bassist Jorge Roeder, also re­side in NY. “The con­nec­tion among the three of us was so strong that we nat­u­rally be­came a band,” says Mae­stro.

the course of her 15 year ca­reer Sarah Slean has made eight al­bums, starred in two short films and a movie mu­si­cal, pub­lished two vol­umes of po­etry, held ex­hi­bi­tions of her paint­ings, writ­ten two string quar­tets, and shared the stage with five of the coun­try’s leading or­ches­tras. Dur­ing that time she was nom­i­nated for three Junos, two Gem­i­nis, and her records have been re­leased in over 10 coun­tries world-wide. For her in­au­gu­ral per­for­mance at Cen­ten­nial Theatre, Cana­dian singer Sarah Slean brings mu­sic from her lat­est al­bum, Land & Sea. In Sarah’s words, “Land is a cel­e­bra­tion of all that is worldly and tem­po­ral; the hu­man dra­mas we par­tic­i­pate in, the strug­gles, the un­usual, at times un­com­fort­able won­der of be­ing a sep­a­rate, in­di­vid­ual con­scious­ness. Sea emerges from that within us which is eter­nal... the sense of a time­less uni­fied con­scious­ness. It is the dawn of a clear per­cep­tion that the uni­verse, in all its stag­ger­ing di­ver­sity, is one.” “...an awe-in­spir­ing panorama of a ma­ture poet and mu­si­cian” - The Toronto Star “...this is Slean’s mas­ter­piece.” - The Mon­treal Gazette

With low in­come rates per­va­sive among English-speak­ing women (al­most 50% of those em­ployed make less than $20 000 per sup­port­ing stu­dents in their ed­u­ca­tional en­deav­ors will help im­prove the eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion of our com­mu­nity.
