Culture at Riverwood: Duo Thalia

July 17 @ 7:30 pm 8:30 pm

Free

Culture at Riverwood is back this summer with a slate of free concerts set to the beautiful backdrop of the MacEwan Terrace Garden! Whether you’re hoping to take in some soothing classical music or hear something fresh and experimental, this year’s performers have you covered.

Performers will play inside the MacEwan Barn. Concertgoers are able to take in each show from just outside the Barn. Please bring your own chair as seating will not be provided.

All shows are free to attend, and registration is not required, but please consider making donations to The Riverwood ConservancyVisual Arts Mississauga, and the Chamber Music Society of Mississauga so we can continue to provide these accessible concerts for years to come.


Duo Thalia is an exciting and innovative string duo based out of Kitchener-Waterloo. Since its conception in 2019, the duo has performed for various online programs, as well as select venues in Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo. The duo continues to engage their audiences by presenting classical and contemporary works, as well as new and unheard-of compositions with a focus on female composers.

As respective instrumentalists, Xueao Yang (violin) and Kendra Grittani (cello) have performed alongside several acclaimed ensembles across Canada, including the National Arts Centre Orchestra, the Regina Symphony Orchestra, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra, Orchestra Live Toronto, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, les Jeunes Virtuoses de Montréal, and the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra.

Following their online performance for the In Concert for Cambodia (IC4C) Organization, the duo has been described as performing at the “very highest level” while displaying a “magical combination of incredible passion and flawless synchronicity that makes this [duo] such a pleasure to hear and watch”.
