He has also performed with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Tafelmusik, the Hamilton Philharmonic, the Boston Lyric Opera and the Boston Pops Orchestra.

Nova Sinfonia was founded in 1995 by a small group of individuals to provide an opportunity for professional and amateur musicians to rehearse and perform orchestral repertoire. The orchestra strives to provide a high standard of musical performance as a complement to the professional musical offerings within the community.  One of the goals of Nova Sinfonia is to provide an opportunity for musicians from the Maritimes to perform as guest artists. To this end Nova Sinfonia has engaged young musicians from the community who are at the beginning of their careers, as well as performers who are well established, often bringing them home to Nova Scotia for the performance. You can visit Nova Symphonia’s website (www.novasinfonia.ca) and join the email list for updates on concerts.

Wednesday, November 12     6 - 9pm
Instructor: Stacey Cornelius
Registration Deadline: Wednesday, November 5

How much should you be paid for your work? What price is the “right price”? How do you put a price tag on your work without second guessing yourself? In this workshop, you will learn how to calculate prices from a business perspective, and how labour and materials are just one part of the picture. We will explore the factors that affect pricing: where you fit into the marketplace, your target customer, as well as where, and how, you sell your work. There will also be a brief discussion about other types of artist income, such as teaching, and how to deal with inevitable requests to work for little or nothing — and how some of those opportunities can work to your advantage.

The Referendum on Scottish independence and After

The UK on the path to quasi-federalism?

Starts: November 22nd, 2014 - 12:30pm
Where: Lord Dalhousie Room, Henry Hicks Building

The referendum on Scottish independence has been a major event for the United Kingdom.  Referendums on secession by a stateless nation in the developed world are rare enough; for one to happen in the UK, with its strong tradition of parliamentary government and representative rather than direct or plebiscitary democracy is more unusual yet.  While the outcome of a No vote was widely expected, the campaign caused serious upheavals not just in Scottish politics but also at UK level. 

The upshot has been a set of commitments to further devolution in Scotland, which will also have knock-on effects for Wales and Northern Ireland.  There are also UK Government commitments to address the ‘English problem’, through ‘English votes for English laws’ in Parliament.  The UK has entered its own era of constitutional mega-politics, in a way it may not have intended or expected.
