Langley’s TWU combo hits the right note

Music lovers can enjoy a pair of midweek musical escapes, ranging from the Renaissance to the 1970s.

For a live music experience that’s entertaining, eclectic, and affordable, try Chamber Music Night on Nov. 26 and Jazz Night slated for Dec. 3. The shows are hosted by Trinity Western University’s School of the Arts, Media + Culture (SAMC).

At 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 26, the intimate Chamber Music Night features piano, violin, and cello performing all four movements of Johannes Brahms’ Piano Trio No. 3 in C Minor, Op. 101.

The piano trio is coached by Vancouver Opera violinist Heilwig von Koenigsloew. Under the direction of SAMC Music professor Jon Thompson, the SAMC Renaissance Singers will perform the 16th Century Missa Pange Lingua, one of the most famous mass settings by Franco-Flemish composer Josquin des Prez.

The ever-popular Jazz Night returns on Dec. 3, also at 7:30 p.m. and also in Instrumental Hall on campus.

To kick off the evening, the new SAMC Jazz Quintet makes an encore appearance after their debut at the Township of Langley’s Until Everyone Comes Home historical variety show earlier this month. 

This fun, retro ensemble is gearing up to perform in SAMC’s swinging spring musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. Joining them onstage is songbird Charlotte Elgersma, the musical’s leading lady.

Closing out the night is the SAMC Jazz Combo, directed by Tony Gallo. Their program ecapsulates the music of the ’60s and early ’70s including artists such as Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Freddie Hubbard, and Herbie Hancock. Influences of jazz guitar greats Wes Montgomery and Django Reinhardt figure prominently. 

Admission is by donation. For more details, visit www.twu.ca/samc or phone 604-513-2173.
