Spectrum Music presents: Journeys

Saturday, December 06 2014, 8:00pm - 10:00pm
‘Journeys’ A concert by Spectrum Music Saturday, December 6th, 2014 Pre-Concert Chat 7:30pm, Concert 8:00 pm Alliance Française de Toronto Theatre, 24 Spadina Rd, Toronto Tickets and information at TORONTO, ON – On December 6th, 2014, Spectrum Music presents ‘Journeys’, a concert of newly minted music, about physical relocation and inner transformation featuring two acclaimed young Canadian Jazz guitarists accompanied by string quartet. Juno-nominated Alex Goodman, hailed as “sophisticated and accomplished” (Toronto Star) and recent winner of the Montreux Jazz Festival International Guitar Competition, will present a four-part suite inspired by his experience of relocating to New York City. Goodman is joined by Toronto guitarist Graham Campbell, who balances Goodman’s New York-influenced sound with his lyricism and distinctly Brazilian-influenced arrangements. True to Spectrum’s Chamber Jazz aesthetic, the soloists are backed by the Ton Beau String Quartet, a quickly rising favorite in the Toronto contemporary and classical music scenes. This will be the quartet’s second collaboration with Spectrum, after their well-received performance at Spectrum's 2013-14 season finale “Early Expressions” which featured acclaimed jazz pianist David Braid. ABOUT JOURNEYS Keeping with the company's thematic approach to programming, the concert features an eclectic collection of new works exploring ways in which physical journeys can be metaphors or catalysts for shifting our personal identities and paradigms. Spectrum artistic producer Matthew Roberts will lead Goodman and Campbell in a pre-concert chat featuring stories of personal journeys from the public submitted through the #SpectrumJourneys social media campaign. Tickets are available online at or at the Alliance Française box office from 6:30 pm on the evening of the concert.
