With her stunning command of the violin, internationally renowned violinist Simone Porter will be performing Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in D major, Opus 19. The stunning concerto was once described as a “mixture of fairy-tale naïveté and daring savagery in lay-out and texture.” The finale will close off with 20th-century composer Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto, Opus 14.

Toast the night with your complimentary drink and sweet sounds of strings.

On May 29, 2019, the City of Edmonton announced the winners of its Missing Middle Infill Design Competition. Launched earlier this year, the design-build competition turned its gaze to medium-density (or ‘missing middle’) housing and how to make it both economically feasible and well designed to work in Edmonton. Increasing the city’s housing choices, particularly how to integrate more housing in the ‘missing middle’ range, is an important part of the City Plan — Edmonton’s future growth strategy for a city headed towards a metropolitan area of two million people.

Endorsed by The Alberta Association of Architects, the 2019 competition drew proposals from teams of architects and builders/developers from across Canada and abroad. Their task: design a ‘missing middle’ housing development on five City-owned parcels of land at the northeast corner of 112 Avenue and 106 Street in the Spruce Avenue neighbourhood. Their prize: the opportunity to purchase the site and build their winning design, subject to rezoning approval.
