This Sunday from 8-9am, it’s another edition of Arts Toronto with your host Mark Wigmore on Jazz FM 91

This episode:

Adventurous theatre goers are once again being welcomed to the third run of the immersive theatrical production, Hogtown - The Immersive Experience. This choose your own adventure theatrical production was just nominated for a Dora Award, and is once again being held at the Historic Campbell House Museum in downtown Toronto; a venue only perfect to help transport you to the roaring decade; a time of prohibition, flapper dresses and the Charleston. The charm of Hogtown is that you get to wander the Campbell House, following the storylines and actors that you deem most interesting. The show is set on New Year’s Eve 1926. Toronto’s future is being decided by ambitious business men, questionable politicians, underworld gangsters and speakeasy socialites. The show has been updated with a fresh design, and new music being added to the already solid jazz based soundtrack. Mark Wigmore welcomes costume designer Jan Venus and writer/producer Drew Carnwath to the Jazz FM Studios.


And, drummer Anthony Fung returns to Toronto! The Richmond Hill native is quite a local jazz story. At 10 years old he picked up the sticks and hasn’t looked back. Anthony was a member of our Jazz FM91 Youth Big Band in 2009 and 2010, but since then: A member of the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, attendee of the Berklee Global Jazz Institute, a Berklee Graduate, and now a student at the Thelonius Monk Institute! His success has allowed him to travel the world, including performing at International Jazz Day in Havana in Spring 2017. Lately he’s worked alongside a collection of real heavyweights too, like Danilo Perez, John Patitucci, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Esperanza Spalding, and Ingrid Jensen. Anthony will perform at The Rex on Tuesday July 18th and Wednesday July 19th with George Garzone and Julian Anderson-Bowes. Mark welcomes Anthony Fung back to his old stomping grounds at Jazz FM.


All that, Garvia Bailey on the music of Maqueque, and beautiful jazz for a summer Sunday morning.
