Road to Rio

There’s no question about it: we could all benefit from a little heat these days. If you can’t escape to the tropics, come out for the Canadian Opera Company’s free presentation of Road to Rio. Pianist and composer Gordon Sheard will conjure thoughts of warmer climates with the help of his students—the Humber Brazilian Jazz Ensemble.
