Anna and Daiga Stube, violin & piano

Anna and Daiga Stube, violin & piano

Anna and Daiga Stube are a mother-daughter duo based in Calgary, Alberta. As a young violinist Anna has performed internationally in countries including the United States, Canada, Israel, Poland, Germany, and England. She has been a prizewinner of several prestigious competitions and has received numerous accolades for her artistry, including the First Prize at the OSM Manulife Competition 2019 and the Grand Prize at the Canadian Music Competition, which was followed by an invitation to perform solo with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. Anna has been performing with her mom Daiga, whose rich musical background in Latvia inspired her continued passion for piano performance and education in Calgary, for over 5 years with acclaimed solo recitals in Kalamazoo, MI and Hamilton, ON. They were honored to perform for the Imanta Latvian Society of Edmonton in 2018 to great acclaim as well as for the Latvian Ambassador to Canada during the nation’s 100th anniversary of independence celebration. 

Together they have established a local reputation for their beautiful renditions in both the classical repertoire and beyond with selections ranging from Schubert to Frank Sinatra. Anna and Daiga are devoted to sharing the compassion and humanity music offers with the ProArts Society audience. In recent months we have witnessed the horror and devastation inflicted upon the nation of Ukraine and its innocent people. Families, histories, and homes have been broken by senseless violence, but the destruction faced by millions has also revealed the incredible resilience of the human spirit and united the international community in support of those suffering through the empathy of the arts.

This program will feature works highlighting the cherished cultural traditions binding our society such as the rhythmic intrigue of Brahms’ Hungarian Dances and the flair of Monti’s famous gypsy showpiece Czardas, interlaced with the intimate setting of lyrical compositions by Kreisler and Elgar revealing the faith and compassion music encapsulates. We hope you will join us on April 27th as we unite for an hour of beauty and musical prayer for the people of Ukraine.
