Whether it was a children's production marking the 50th anniversary of the United Nations or a piano competition celebrating the Bach bicentennial and Glenn Gould, Niki has embrace every project with optimism and respect for his performers and his audiences. The story of Niki Goldschmidt's long life and continuing work is in large part the story of Canada's artistic coming of age.
