WE HAD A GREAT TIME WITH MOZART AND BRAHMS LAST SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, AT THE WOLF HALL

Graham Lord delighted the audience with his beautiful interpretation of the Mozart clarinet quintet. The string quartet consisting of Joe Lanza, Andrew Chung, Scott St. John, and Christine Newland gave a robust performance of the Brahms quartet no.3. It was a great evening celebrating our own London musicians.

REMEMBER TO KEEP SUNDAY, MAY 15 FREE FOR OUR JAZZ CONCERT. Details on the Feature page.

Continuing our All Canadian Season
Sunday, May 15. 2016, 3 P.M., Wolf Performance Hall.
The LARA SOLNICKI TRIO with award winning singer Lara Solnicki, special guest GREG OSBY, Alto and Soprano saxophone, and TED QUINLAN, guitar and GEORGE KOLLER, bass. An afternoon of jazz.

Canadian vocalist, poet, and composer, LARA SOLNICKI brings her classically trained voice to the jazz idiom. She is a recent recipient of the Chalmers Foundation Career Development Grant from the Ontario Arts Council to study improvisation and composition for large ensemble. She has had #1 songs on Canadian jazz radio and web charts (Radio Canada, CBC) , and top 20 songs on international jazz web radio charts. She has released two internationally acclaimed CDs; “A Meadow in December” (2010, Independent) and “Whose Shadow?” (2014/2015, Inner Circle Music) which was listed in January 2016 as one of the Best Vocal Jazz releases of 2015 (Jazz History Online, USA).
GREG OSBY, saxophonist par excellence, composer, producer and educator, comes to us from New York for this special appearance. He has made an indelible mark on contemporary jazz as a leader of his own ensembles and as a guest artist with other acclaimed jazz groups for the past 20 years.
Multi instrumentalist GEORGE KOLLER has over three decades accumulated hundreds of diverse performing, recording and producing credits. Beside the bass his playing of Indian stringed instruments -- Sitar, Sarode, Tanpura, and the violin-like Esraj and Dilruba—are featured in the motion pictures Such a Long Journey and Possible Worlds.
TED QUINLAN is respected as one of Canada’s most multi-faceted jazz musicians, highly skilled as a solo jazz guitarist, session player, writer, and dedicated educator. He is the long-time head of the Guitar program at Humber College, one of North America ’s most respected Jazz Studies institutions.
