Guy & Nadina
Saturday, May 6, 2017
"Polished tone, immaculate intonation, and infectious high spirits;" (allmusic.com) "it's obvious they're having a blast." In the past two seasons Guy Few and Nadina Mackie Jackson have gone cross-country with their unique performances on trumpet, piano, and bassoon. In this concert, we will be treated to a variety of works from different musical periods, including works by Bodin, Beethoven, Rossini, Paganini, Buhr, Dutilleux, and more. Guy and Nadina have delighted audiences everywhere they've gone, and, as we know from past experience, they'll delight us again!
The Poet & The Singer
Saturday, September 9, 2017
An intimate evening of lush singing with piano accompaniment, seamlessly combined with evocative, witty poetry to create a magical whole. Leslie Fagan, a regular at Carnegie Hall, has been said to sing "effortlessly, with clear shimmering tone." Jeff Pinkney is a prize-winning poet and author. Lorin Shalanko regularly collaborates with Leslie and other musicians and dancers of Wilfred Laurier and Waterloo Universities. We'll be delighted by the songs of Richard Strauss, Peter Tiefenbach, and Henry Purcell.

Pianist Catherine Wilson leads the group in An Evening in Paris: an imaginative program capturing the essence of Parisian musical life. We'll enjoy sensual performances of music by Widor, Franck, Debussy, Piazzolla, and others. "Beautiful, poised performances reveal a deep musicianship and light interpretive touch." (Toronto Star) Rick Wilkins says: "This is the highest-level chamber music-making." We all need more chamber music in our souls—and what better way to get it than from the sublime Ensemble Vivant?
