David Bowie is one of music history's most praised and successful artists, with a career that has spanned four decades. Bowie continuously sought to re-invent himself, while selling an estimated 140 million albums. His genre-defying journey through a vast array of musical styles, from rock to funk, dance to ballad, always kept fans guessing what he would do next.

Since the early 80's, Syl Thompson has been paying tribute to David Bowie's music with respect and pride. Thompson embodies Bowie’s musical style and persona; in fact, he has been acclaimed as providing the most credible and realistic Bowie experience in North America.

A Night Of Bowie is a celebration of Bowie's extensive list of memorable hits, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on his peak years from the early '70s to the early '90s. The show is eerily close to hearing and seeing Bowie himself.

"A Night of Bowie did not disappoint" - Fraser Valley News

"A 'near- Bowie experience'" - Steve Heywood (Black Press)

Come celebrate the life & music of David Bowie

Charlie Brown Jazzy Christmas

Charlie Brown Jazzy Christmas

Jerry Granelli is one of the most widely recognized and highly regarded musicians in Nova Scotia. With a career that spans 60 years, Jerry has had the opportunity to perform with the likes of Charlie Haden, Mose Allison, Sonny Stitt, Sly Stone, Ornette Coleman and Vince Guaraldi.

A Charlie Brown Christmas went on to become a triple-platinum holiday classic that still ranks in the top Christmas album sales over five decades later. The soundtrack is in both the Grammy Hall of Fame and the Library of Congress National Recording Registry.

Jerry recorded with Vince on several of his collaborations with Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete and was present on many of the “Charlie Brown” television special scores including the inaugural now-classic A Charlie Brown Christmas – an internationally beloved jazz treasure for children of all ages which includes the bouncy theme “Linus and Lucy.” Sadly, carelessness on the part of Fantasy Records kept him from being properly credited on that album for decades. “That was the real beginning,” Jerry shrugs. “I was making good money as a working jazz musician. (Renowned music critic) Ralph J. Gleason would write about me so I went from a local guy to national recognition

Met Opeera - Wozzeck

Wozzeck (Berg)

Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts William Kentridge’s new production of Alban Berg’s
expressionistic masterpiece Wozzeck, regarded for its intense emotional power and brilliant score as one of the most significant operas of the 20th century. Composed during and in the aftermath of World War I, Berg’s dark exploration of a soldier besieged by the evils of society, is staged by Kentridge in a ramshackle warren of stairs, ramps, discarded furniture, and debris. His own theatrically animated charcoal drawings, along with other projected drawings, maps, and film clips, evoke a nightmarish world of crashed planes, searchlights, ghostly gas masks, and battlefields. Peter Mattei makes his role debut as Wozzeck opposite Elza van den Heever as Marie, the mother of his child. Singing the roles of Wozzeck’s tormentors are Christopher Ventris as the Drum-Major, Gerhard Siegel as the Captain, and Christian Van Horn as the Doctor. Andrew Staples makes his Met debut as Andres.

Kentridge, who previously directed Berg’s Lulu and Shostakovich’s The Nose at the
Met, unveiled the new production at the 2017 Salzburg Festival, where it received critical acclaim.

Met Opera - Porgy & Bess

Porgy & Bess (The Gershwins)

The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess returns to the Met for the first time since 1990, in a new production directed by James Robinson in his company debut. America’s “folk opera,” as the 1935 creators described it, tells the story of disabled beggar Porgy, sung by Eric Owens, and his love for the drug-addicted Bess, portrayed by Angel Blue. David Robertson conducts a stellar cast that also includes Donovan Singletary as fisherman Jake, Golda Schultz as his wife Clara, Latonia Moore as the bereaved widow Serena, Frederick Ballentine as drug dealer Sportin’ Life, Alfred Walker as the brutal stevedore Crown, and Denyce Graves as Maria, town matriarch and operator of the local cook-shop.

Infused with the timeless melodies of the much-loved classics “Summertime,” “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” “Bess, You Is My Woman Now,” “I Got Plenty o’ Nuttin,” and “My Man’s Gone Now,” the new co-production with English National Opera and Dutch National Opera was hailed as a triumph at its premiere in London earlier this year.
