Blythwood Winds at Victory

Why not crack open a cold one and listen to some great wind music?

We got you covered – as the temperature goes down, warm up inside at the Victory Cafe Sunday, December 2nd at 8:30pm with some wind quintet music.  No cover, just a great way to hear some classical music in a different setting

Denburg Recital

Fellow Toy Piano Composer Elisha Denburg will be having his composition DMA recital tomorrow, Sunday November 4th, at 7:30pm at Walter Hall (Faculty of Music, University of Toronto).  I’ve grown to really love Elisha’s music, whose pieces I find have a great deal of not only compositional depth but also emotional depth.  A real joy to perform, especially with the blockbuster cast of performers he’s assembled (see below!).  And as always – it’s free!

Idée Fixe (piano)
Three Israeli Folk Songs (baritone, clarinet, piano)
Sleepwalking (percussion quartet)

Torontiade III is almost here!

This Saturday at 7:30, I will be performing brand new pieces along with Anthony Thompson on clarinet and Michelle Hwu on percussion in a composer’s workshop!

The group, known as Torontiade (after the very popular ‘Schubertiades’, which were gatherings of musicians and composers in small salons in the 19th century), is an affordable new music workshop that emphasizes collaboration and networking.

For the composers, it is a chance to compose for groups that they would otherwise not have the chance to write for.  For the performers, it’s a great opportunity to perform not only new works but to also get solid recordings under their belt.  The group was formed by U of T grad Mike Romaniak, one of the coolest cats I’ve ever met!

In the second half, there will also be a band playing called ‘Kelsey’s Trio’ featuring Kelsey McNulty, Jessica Deutsch and Tyler Emond.

We will be performing at a rad place: Placebo, found at 1409 Bloor Street West.  Space is limited, and there are bean bag chairs to sit on and a bar to drink from.  Hope to see you all there!  Best of all – it’s PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN!!

Treemonisha

May 29, 2012 Koerner Hall Treemonisha – Nathaniel Dett Chorale in Toronto
Time: 8:00PM
Tickets: $39.00
Age restrictions: All Ages
Address: 273 Bloor Street West
Venue phone: 416.408.0208

Tomorrow night at 8pm, I’ll be performing in a 12 piece orchestra on-stage at Koerner Hall accompanying the Nathaniel Dett Chorale in their performance of ‘Treemonisha’, North America’s first Afro-American Opera by Scott Joplin.  The following is a great summary of it:

Set during the period of reconstruction, this story of racial uplift reflects the great hunger for education in African American communities after the Civil War. Never performed in Joplin’s lifetime, this brilliant work draws on both African American and 18th century operatic traditions.

The music is amazingly fun to play (and listen to), and the soloists and choir sound incredible.  It makes for an incredibly uplifting performance.

The concert will be taking place at Koerner Hall Tuesday night (May 29th), at 8pm, and you can purchase tickets on the RCM website.
