Thali Ringing v3.jpg

“Thali Ringing” is the title of an exciting multimedia collaboration, taking place on October 12 at 7:30pm, featuring acoustic and electronic contemporary music and poetry, followed by a visual art exhibit in our Fundraising Pop Up Gallery, all in the friendly atmosphere of the Holy Trinity Anglican Church located on 10037-84 Avenue in Edmonton, Allberta.

 

The show takes its name after Scott Smallwood’s ​electro-acoustic trio “Thali Ringing” imitating the cool sounds of a Thali plate featuring cello, violin and piano, and there will also be an improvised dialog between piano solo and electronics featuring Shawn Pinchbeck​ and ​Mikolaj Warszynski​. ​

Jonathan Maywood’s​ acoustic trio illustrating the ocean's waves, as well as the two short but sensual violin solo pieces by the Toronto composer ​Veronika Krausas and Polish Canadian ​Piotr Grella-Mozejko​, will be performed by musicians well-known to Edmonton audiences: ​Tatiana Warszynski​ on violin, ​Amy Nicholson​ on cello and ​Mikolaj Warszynski on piano.
 

Music will combine with poetry written and recited by the renowned Nigerian poet, ​Titilope Sonuga,​ as well as Edmonton’s own ​Bernd Hildebrandt​. Their poems will be intertwined with electronica by both Scott Smallwood and Shawn Pinchbeck, bringing new dimensions to the spoken word.


Following the concert, there will be a​ Fundraising Pop Up Art Gallery​, an amazing visual art collection by local yet nationally recognized artists:​ Steven Dixon, John Maywood, Lyndal Osborne ​and ​Kelly Johner​, who donated their works for this event to support the Mazurka Music and Art Society. Thanks to their generosity we are hoping to raise funds for our series of exciting concerts for 2019/20 season.
 

A reception with wine and cheese and a lottery will take place during the art exhibit in the church's gallery. Please join us and be part of this exciting multimedia collaboration.

 

Tickets: Regular $20, Senior $15, Student $10
