February 18 and 19, 2008To Armstrong and Bach is a mix of jazz, classical music and a hint of theatre with musicians spanning from Kamloops, Vancouver and New York City.
The Kamloops Jazz Society and Living Arts have joined forces for the first time to bring Kamloops this musical blend of styles as an introduction to Western Canada Theatre's jazz and classical music themed production The Satchmo Suite (Feb 21-March 1).
This musical prelude will feature Kamloops' Dimiter Terziev, playing two Bach piano solos and Martha Guth, (a Canadian soprano from New York City and recent winner of the prestigious Wigmore Hall Song Competition in London, England) who will sing a stunningly beautiful cantata. Guth will weave voice and theatre to portray a woman washing away remorse in the struggle to accept human imperfection. The classical performance will be directed and designed by Living Arts’ Alan Corbishley in his unique and modern style of staging.
The Kamloops Jazz Society will take the stage in the second half with a jazz tribute to Louis Armstrong. Leigh Smith, a trumpet player from Vancouver, will create a jazzy atmosphere in the Pavilion with a local Dixie band (please visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCBDFfk_GVo to experience Leigh Live) . The band will comprise of Grant Porter (bass), Buddy Rogers (drums) and Dale Rasmussen (piano), all of whom are from Kamloops.
May 1 and 2, 2008Our main performance will once again be an innovative and different event for Kamloops. Alan Corbishley has created, designed and commissioned a new contemporary dance work entitled Metaxu and will feature the Vancouver dance ensemble The Tomorrow Collective. Along with their own dance creations which incorporate original music and film works, they will present Metaxu for the first time which will be created here in Kamloops. Metaxu suggests that every separation is a link. It is a Greek term which Plato originated but made more famous by philosopher Simone Weil with the example of “two prisoners whose cells adjoin communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but it is also their means of communication.” This performance will include original music by Kamloops own Chris Bose and will be a physical and multi-media journey into metaphor and cultural explorations.
