Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses

by under Recent Projects and News

ZeldaI’ll be part of the amazing The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses coming to Edmonton and Calgary December 1st & 2nd @ the Jubilee Auditorium! These shows will feature a new piece from the newly released Breath of the Wild, Skyward Sword, and an updated overture.
The two-hour concert comes to life with a 57-piece orchestra, 20-person choir, and a reimagined score that draws from recent Zelda games, including A Link Between Worlds, Twilight Princess, Majora’s Mask, while still paying homage to such classics as Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past. The concert’s five-movement symphony regales ears with Nintendo composer Koji Kondo’s original music. Throughout the evening, a video collage syncs up with the adventurous tunes to spotlight exciting moments from the venerable franchise.

Opera Nuova’s The Cunning Little Vixen

by under Recent Projects and News

CLV-Title-SquareI’ll be joining my friends at Opera Nuova for their production of Leoš Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen. June 23, 25, 27 & 29, 2017 at 7:30 pm
Festival Place, 100 Festival Way Sherwood Park
This magical Czech story of the forest tells the tale of a young Vixen fox cub who, after escaping capture, find adventure and love in the forest. The cycle of life is celebrated by both the animals of the forest and the people who inhabit it. Janacek presents some of his most experimental music while blending the magic of the animal world with the folly of village in this light opera of folklore.

Opera NUOVA is pleased to feature the dancers from Citie Ballet in this production.

P.J. Perry & Strings Play “Charlie Parker with Strings”

by under Recent Projects and News

PJperryandstringsThe Edmonton Jazz Society presents P.J. Perry & Strings Play “Charlie Parker with Strings” from March 3 – 4 at 8pm at the Yardbird Suite, 11 Tommy Banks Way

Doors at 7pm, Show at 8pm
Tickets are $36.00 plus applicable fees. Click Here for tickets

Since “Yardbird Suite” is one of Charlie Parker’s most famous tunes, it is more than appropriate to have one weekend featuring Bird’s music. Between 1947 and 1952, Parker recorded on several occasions with a small classical string ensemble and a jazz rhythm section. Although considered somewhat controversial when they were first released, they are now considered landmarks for orchestral jazz productions and rank among the best in Charlie Parker’s discography. This event features P.J. Perry on alto saxophone and Tommy Banks on piano. Toronto bassist Neil Swainson will be joining the group for this special occasion.

The musicians for this event are:
Tommy Banks – conductor
P.J. Perry – alto saxophone
Jennifer Bustin – concertmaster – violin
Allyson Lyne, Marie Krejcar, Marie Forestier, John Calverley, Shannon Johnson – violins
Miriam Ferguson and Sarah Wilbur-Woodman – violas
Silvia Buttiglione – cello
Beth Levia – oboe
Mary Fearon – French horn
Keri Zwicker – harp
Chris Andrew – piano
Neil Swainson – bass
Bobby Cairns – guitar
Jamie Cooper – drums
