With the second concert in their season, the Arrow Lakes Arts Council brings the invigorating talents of the Gryphon Trio to the Bonnington Arts Centre for an inspiring night of chamber music.
Annalee Patipatanakoon, violin, Roman Borys, cello, and Jamie Parker, piano, form the Gryphon Trio. Having impressed international audiences and the press with their highly refined, dynamic performances, the two-time Juno winning Gryphon Trio has firmly established itself as one of the world’s preeminent piano trios. Performing from Canada to Russia, United States to Egypt, Belgium to Scandinavia and major centres in between, this national treasure is always in demand and continues to dazzle audiences with memorable performances. This season, they will tour throughout British Columbia, the Northwest Territories, Alberta, Ontario and New Brunswick.
Ensemble-in-residence at Music Toronto for the past decade, the Gryphon Trio continues to push the boundaries of chamber music. The trio has commissioned and premiered over 50 new works from established and emerging composers around the world and has collaborated on special projects with clarinetist James Campbell, actor Colin Fox, choreographer David Earle, and a host of jazz luminaries. Their most ambitious undertaking to date is a groundbreaking multimedia production of composer Christis Hatzis’s epic work Constantinople, scored for mezzo-soprano, Middle Eastern singer, violin, cello, piano, and electronic audiovisual media, which they have brought to audiences across North America and at the Royal Opera House in London.
Deeply committed to the education of the next generation of audiences and performers alike, the members of the Gryphon Trio take time out of their busy touring schedules to conduct masterclasses and workshops at universities and conservatories across North America, and are Artists-in-Residence at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Music.
Doors will be open at 7:00 p.m., and the concert starts 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be available at the Bon March/Dollar Store until Wednesday afternoon, then at the door. Come and join us on Wednesday, October 23 for one of the highlights of this Concert Season, the Gryphon Trio, in an exciting evening of chamber music!
