About Dinuk Wijeratne Trio

Dinuk Wijeratne is a Sri Lankan-born Canadian composer and pianist whose music embraces the diversity of his international background and influences. Joining him on stage will be Nick Halley, Founder & Artistic Director of Capella Regalis, and himself a much sought after percussionist, and award-winning bassist Tom Easley. These three musicians come together for a night that bends the boundaries of classical, jazz, and world music. You will also get a chance to meet them during opportunities to mingle with the audience.

This event is co-presented by Musique Royale and Capella Regalis with a similiar event taking place at The Peggy Corkum Music Room in Halifax on Friday, Oct. 28.
