MUSIQUE ROYALE

December 1 - 3, 2018

100 Candles

Blackwood Duo featuring soprano Janelle Lucyk

Join Musique Royale on December 1st and delve into the positive power of Christmas – in an atmosphere of depth, reflection, lyricism and celebration of intense beauty. Music that boldly shifts down into the heart of space, openness, and contemplation and for just over an hour, gives you a chance to go slow in a fast time.

The wide ranging performance experience of Peter-Anthony Togni and Jeff Reilly in their duo, Blackwood, includes hundreds of concerts touring Russia, China, Europe and North America performing in a range of contexts: jazz, contemporary classical, choral, orchestral, string orchestra, and Gamelan orchestra. The glue that holds them together is a common love of improvisation, a passion for taking musical risks, and a deep desire to to connect with their audience.

The duo welcomes soprano, Janelle Lucyk, who hails from the prairies and prior to moving to Nova Scotia, gained wide performance experience and education in Belgium (Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles) and in the UK (Durham University).

Come to hear your annual Christmas favourites, in a new interpretation. Allow these sounds to wash over you, a breath of crisp Christmas air.

Featuring

Blackwood Duo , Jeff Reilly (bass clarinet), Peter Togni (piano), Janelle Lucyk (soprano)
