George Gao Ensemble in Kai Chan in poetry and music

Thursday, January 13 2011, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Join us at the Varley Art Gallery in Markham for an evening of music and poetic flavour. With the art of Kai Chan as the backdrop, the George Gao Ensemble featuring George Gao, Lew Mele and Bill Bridges. {mospagebreak}A partial combined list of some of the artists with which they have worked is as impressive as it is diverse; ...Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horn, Moe Koffman, Bruce Cockburn, Holly Cole, Zappacosta, Roger Whittaker, Bowfire, Lara St John,... Collaboration with these fellow artists brings to the table a diverse musical pallette from which to draw inspiration. It's no wonder that the combination of these uniquely talented musicians, the influence of living within the ethnically diverse and multicultural city of Toronto and the mutual respect these musicians have for one another, has resulted in an original, contemporary sounding musical product. Interspersed through the evening, award-winning poet Barry Dempster will also share his poetic response to Kai Chan's creations. {mospagebreak}Tickets $30.
Location: Varley Art Gallery (Markham)
