Upcoming Concerts


May 4, 2017: Classical Rags, lecture recital, Fish Creek Seniors Centre Arts and Culture Series, sponsored by Mount Royal University. The phenomenon of ragtime virtually created the stream of music we call today ‘popular music.’ The success of ragtime was not, however, limited to the great early triumvirate of ragtime composers, Scott Joplin, James Scott, and Joseph Lamb, nor was it limited to the field of popular music and mass sales. Almost all important European ‘classical’ composers wrote ragtimes in the first twenty years or so of the 20th century, including Claude Debussy, Erik Satie, Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud, and even Paul Hindemith. Fish Creek Seniors Centre, 2 pm.

June 4 – 5, 2017: Mountain View Connection, Muse in a Bottle: Dance of the Green Fairy, with Allison Angelo, soprano, Olga Primak, actor and mime, and Kathleen van Mourik, piano. Lougheed House, 7:30 pm both nights. Berlioz, Caplet, Fauré, Grieg, Dupont, and more.

November 18, 2017: Project Surfboard, benefit concert for Jason McCue. With Jen Shukuda, Liesel Fedkenheuer, Carmen and Simon Morin, Katrina Lee, Leon Lentoridis, Dan Morin, others. 7:30 pm, Cardel Theatre, Calgary.
