Cornwall Concert Series returns with diverse roster for 2022-23 seasonSeptember 8, 2022
The Cornwall Concert Series is back for the 2022-23 season with an eclectic slate of performers set to take the stage at Aultsville Theatre.
A mainstay of Cornwall’s arts scene for decades, the Cornwall Concert Series gives both residents and visitors a chance to see award-winning musical performances that would otherwise only be available in major markets.
This year’s lineup features something for everyone, from the renowned Trio Fibonacci and one-of-a-kind Hogtown Brass to the witty Sara Hagen and Joe Trio and east coast charm of Heather Bambrick.
2022-23 Concert Series lineup
Trio Fibonacci – The Season of Minimalists
Saturday, September 10 8pm
Trio Fibonacci made its first appearance on the Canadian music scene in 1998, with the press reporting that “to hear them is to enter into the world of miracles” (Le Devoir, Montreal). Discover a captivating body of works that go straight to the heart of melody. The highlight of this concert: Max Richter’s masterly recomposition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi, which takes you to the edge of the past and the present. Works by Glass and Einaudi complete this programme of spellbinding simplicity.
Sarah Hagen – Perk-up, Pianist!
Sunday, October 16 2pm
Often referred to as the next Victor Borge, Sarah Hagen has transformed her award-winning role as “concert pianist” into a stand-up, or rather, sit-down comedy. Pairing anecdotes with music, “Perk up, pianist!” takes audiences deep inside the world of a classical musician as she shares her earnest efforts to keep her spirits up in the midst of troublesome times. Sarah tells the tale of a touring classical musician remaining optimistic in the midst of challenging and ridiculous situations.
Hogtown Brass – Old, New, Borrowed, Blue
Sunday, November 6 2pm
Hogtown Brass is a dynamic Canadian ensemble, known for their unique arrangements and new compositions, and collaborations with vocalists and instrumentalists, along with the affinity for both standard and non-traditional performance spaces. Hogtown Brass is on a mission to reinvigorate the entire concert experience for their audience.
Saturday, April 22 8pm
Amply witty, charming, and tremendously musical, Joe Trio leaves audiences with a new appreciation for classical music. Joe Trio is not your average piano trio. They strive for diversity, versatility, and more than a little humour and unpredictability. Their repertoire consists of Papa Haydn to Uncle Shostakovich, new works by contemporary composers, and their own arrangements of popular, jazz and rock tunes. More than virtuosi, the Trio’s members are fantastic performers who engage the audience in a way few classical musicians can.
Heather Bambrick Quintet
Saturday, May 6 8pm
JUNO and East Coast Music Award (ECMA) nominee Heather Bambrick, has been described as “what happens when Ella Fitzgerald meets Carol Burnett at a Newfoundland Kitchen Party!” As a born-and-raised Newfoundlander, Heather uses her East-Coast charm to welcome the audience. Heather brings together musicians, a wide-ranging repertoire, interesting and unique arrangements, an outstanding stage presence, and humour to create a show that is entertainment at its finest!
