Arts and culture
Event Horizons is a series of unique and extraordinary events that stimulate and enthrall. It is a showcase of innovative work of the highest international standard: an emotional, intellectual, and creative experience. And perhaps most importantly, it is a social space, where ideas collide and curious minds meet. These cultural and bistro events are ancillary activities made possible through paid ticketing, private donors, and sponsorships.
Classical world artists
The Classical World Artists series is a staple of Perimeter's Event Horizons programming. In the past, we have brought such world-renowned musicians as Yo-Yo Ma, Gidon Kremer, the Hagen String Quartet, Joshua Bell, Evelyn Glennie, and Emanuel Ax to Waterloo. Whether you're a classical devotee or simply interested in exploring a rich musical experience, we invite you to join us for an intimate evening in the company of innovative, world-class artists.
The Black Hole Bistro is open at 5:30 pm for dinner before each concert. Reservations are required and may be made by email.
