So apparently I have a fascination with capturing great artists and their pianos at the NAC. First I shot a photo of Canadian jazz legend Oscar Peterson, and today I bring you one of Glenn Gould, one of the best-known and most celebrated classical pianists of the 20th century. Actually what I am bringing you is a photo of Gould’s favorite piano, the Steinway CD 318, which is located in a permanent display at the mezzanine of the National Arts Centre. This is a great little exhibit and hommage to the artist!

Oh! and before I forget, I managed to snap a quick shot of the NAC orchestra practicing yesterday. Without all the equipment and the black suits, it sure looked different, but I can tell you it sounded just as great!  Enjoy and Happy Friday!
