ASHK – World Music Band
Jul 1 @ 7:30 pm
ASHK - World Music Band

ASHK World Music Band is…

Ariana Nasr, Sahara Nasr, Kamila Nasr and Ken Shorley

We are thrilled to have Ariana Nasr return to the King’s Theatre stage after lifting the lid off with her Piaf Show.

Celebrate Canada Day with a trip around the world!

ASHK is the latest project from the Nasr sisters Sahara, Kamila and Ariana. The three sisters have devoted many years to studying and performing music in different parts of the world including India, Afghanistan, China, Europe and Brazil… The word ASHK, means “love” in Turkish and “tear” in Persian. As the band performs in multiple languages and styles, playing a variety of instruments, ASHK creates a show that reflects their travels, studies and musical passions.

The sisters have teamed up with world percussionist Ken Shorley to take the audience on an international tour. Ariana brings us to France, Eastern Europe and beyond, hearing the sounds of Edith Piaf, the Roma, and the Balkans. Sahara explores the music of India and Persia, sharing Sufi poetry of Rumi in her own compositions. Kamila brings us to Portugal through Fado, to Brazil with hip hop and treats us to original Afghan-Celtic fusion. The versatile Ken Shorley will transport us to the Middle East, South Asia and Turkey as he flows effortlessly among instruments and styles.

ASHK’s performance is powerful as they sing most selections with three or four part harmonies and perform with an impressive array of both eastern and western instruments.  This is a show not to miss.

LOS PRIMOS – Hot Music from Havana
Jul 9 @ 7:30 pm

We are excited to welcome Los Primos back to King’s Theatre!

Los Primos 2017 Summer Tour will feature Jeff Goodspeed, Augusto Enriquez, and three of the most promising and inspired young musicians from Havana, Cuba.

 

The Los Primos Project has been contributing to the education of an entire generation of musicians. Started in 1997 to help music education in Cuba deal with instrument shortages, and to inspire our young Nova Scotia musicians by giving them the opportunity to perform with Cuban music students and professionals.

In celebration of this 20 year milestone, Los Primos artistic director Jeff Goodspeed and international Cuban recording artist Augusto Enriquez, will lead Los Primos 2017 in a series of performances and Cuban music clinics through out Nova Scotia. Los Primos has raised over $500,000 for music education in Nova Scotia and delivered 700 instruments to musicians and schools in Cuba.

Los Primos 2017 will feature three of the most promising and inspired young musicians from Havana who have ever been part of this unique cultural exchange project.

 

Alison Enríquez is now studying grade 10 in Halifax on scholarship to the Armbrae Academy. She is playing in the Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra, appearing every Sunday at Stayners Sunday Jazz and performing solo and in small ensembles throughout the province. Not only is she a gifted violinist but she sings with the maturity and freedom of a seasoned professional.

 

 

Ahmed Alom is back in Havana after studying for 3 years in the most famous music school of Mexico City. He has now been accepted on full scholarship to the Manhattan School of music and will begin there this fall. He has won numerous international classical piano competitions but is also recognized in Havana as one of the very best latin jazz piano players they have produced.

 

 

 

Dayron Rodríguez started playing with professional bands in Havana when he was only 12 years old and has been doing it every since. He is the son of a cab driver and the first in his family to ever study music. He was a member of Los Primos 2012 and returned to Nova Scotia in 2014. He plays with the strength and sound of the master conga players for which Cuba is famous.

 

 

 

Los Primos 2017 will tour Nova Scotia performing at festivals and special events from July 4 to August 9. They will also be offering Cuban music clinics in Truro, Sydney and Halifax. For a complete listing of concerts and clinics, stay tuned through the Los Primos website www.losprimos.ca and follow them on facebook.

THEIR FINEST
Jul 11 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presentation

Directed by Lone Scherfig

Screenplay by Gaby Chiappe

Starring Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, and Bill Nighy

UK

Rated 14A · 117 mins

Genres Comedy,  Drama,  Romance

 

With London emptied of its men now fighting at the Front, Catrin Cole (Gemma Arterton) is hired by the British Ministry of Information as a “slop” scriptwriter charged with bringing “a woman’s touch” to morale-boosting propaganda films. Her natural flair quickly gets her noticed by dashing movie producer Buckley (Sam Claflin) whose path would never have crossed hers in peacetime. As bombs are dropping all around them, Catrin, Buckley and a colourful crew work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation. Although Catrin’s artist husband looks down on her job, she quickly discovers there is as much camaraderie, laughter and passion behind the camera as there is onscreen.

“Their Finest is one of the smartest, funniest and most surprising movies I’ve seen in years.”
– Joe Morgenstein, The Wall Street Journal

REENY SMITH – Friday night!
Jul 14 @ 7:30 pm
REENY SMITH - Friday night!

You won’t want to miss North Preston R&B/Hip-hop/Soul artist Reeny Smith and her six-piece band.

Winner of the 2016 Music Nova Scotia African Canadian Artist of the Year award, Reeny is a rising star who has been taking stages by storm. In fact, the night after she performs at King’s she is headlining the Mainstage at the Halifax Jazz Festival.

Raised in North Preston, Nova Scotia, Reeny has been singing and playing the piano since the age of five. Her family is a veritable who’s-who of Nova Scotia gospel and soul veterans: Wallace Smith Sr. and Jr., her grandfather and father, are former members of the Gospel Heirs (formed and still based at Saint Thomas); her father currently leads the Hallelujah Praise Choir, and her uncle is Carson Downey.  Her R&B-flavoured songs are secular, but Smith’s emotion and expression are clearly rooted in gospel, with elements of hip-hop jazz, blues and funk.

Smith’s silky soulful voice—honed as a jazz major at St. F.X.—is undeniable. She’s accomplished much in a scant amount of time, including an opening slot for Grammy winner Lisa Fischer, winning three African Nova Scotian Music Association awards, and in 2015 being named Artist-in-Residence at Casino Nova Scotia.

“A sensitive, powerful performer, Smith will transfix you as she lifts you up.”

ALAN FRASER: CLASSICAL PIANO – with Audrey Dumont and Masha Fraser
Jul 20 @ 7:30 pm

Alan Fraser, Masha Fraser & Audrey Dumont, piano

Programme includes compositions by

Robert Schumann, Joseph Haydn, Frederic Chopin, W. A. Mozart and Eric Satie,

as well as Vera Milankovich,Olivier Messaien, Mihail Glinka, and Mihi Balakirev.

 

Alan Fraser

Canadian pianist Alan Fraser enjoys an international reputation both as a teacher and a performer. He is best known for his landmark books, The Craft of Piano Playing (also in DVD), Honing the Pianistic Self-Image and All Thumbs: Well-Coordinated Piano Technique. Oxford University Press will soon publish his fourth volume on piano technique, Play the Piano with Your Whole Self. Considered classics in the field, these books are sought after worldwide, with new translations into several languages appearing regularly.

After studies in Montreal with Tom Plaunt and Phil Cohen, Alan moved to the former Yugoslavia in 1990 to collaborate with Kemal Gekić, a virtuoso whose transcendent technique he would imbibe and analyze on the way to forming his own approach, now known as Piano Kinematics.

Alan is a senior practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method, an approach to neuro-motor re-education that played a crucial role in the development of his piano technique. You can find out more about Feldenkrais in Norman Doidge’s new book, the New York Times bestseller The Brain’s Way of Healing. He combines his Feldenkrais and piano technique expertise in the Alan Fraser Piano Institute, held annually at locations throughout Europe and North America. Alan still lives and teaches in Serbia, where he is on staff at the University of Novi Sad. He has two daughters, Megan and Masha.

Alan has strong roots to this region. His great grandfather Willard Clarke of Bear River was the local lumber baron, and his father, Clarke Fraser, was a regular at the Annapolis market Saturday mornings.

 

Masha Fraser

Masha Fraser was born in Wuhan, China of mixed Serbian-Canadian parentage, and completed her primary music studies at the Stanislav Binichki Music School in Belgrade, Serbia. She recently graduated from the Kosta Manoilovich Music School in Belgrade, and has worked as well under such legendary teachers as Lilika Petrovich, Verica Hoffman, Zlata Malesh, Phil Cohen and Kemal Gekic as well as having occasional coaching sessions with her father. In addition to music, she has a propensity for mathematics and psychology, and is considering opening a clinic treating traumatized performing artists.

 

Audrey Dumont

A native of Dijon, France, Audrey Dumont studied piano at the Dijon Conservatoire and is now enrolled in Master’s degree program at the Conservatoire in Lausanne, Switzerland. She has been attending the Alan Fraser Piano Institute regularly since 2014, and uses piano kinematics in her teaching practice in Dijon. In her spare time, Audrey writes poetry as well as practicing meditation and the Feldenkrais Method.
