The Performance -
"Internationally-acclaimed trumpet player, Jens Lindemann, presents “Brassfire” - an epic, energized concert experience highlighting the history of trumpet music. Jens performs timeless classics from Bach and Vivaldi to Louis Armstrong and Dizzie Gillespie. With his exceptional musicianship and sensitivity, Jens explores the full emotional range of the trumpet, from lyrical haunting melodies to the blistering bravado of Maynard Ferguson, all delivered with the showmanship of his childhood hero Doc Severisen. Jens will be joined by special guest Barry Shiffman, one of Canada’s foremost violin soloists.
Rounding out the evening’s Performance is vocal powerhouse Shannon Gaye, performing her own brand of Soul, Rhythm & Blues, accompanied by Bulgarian piano prodigy Kristian Alexandrov and his Stellar trio." - write up credit: Port Moody Arts Centre
