SANCTUARY
Sep 30 @ 7:30 pm

Sanctuary is a musical trio based in Halifax. They have established a unique form of contemporary music that is rich, intense and lyrical. Much of their music is based on Gregorian chant but that is merely a point of departure –they transcend these ancient materials using improvisation, contemporary music and extended techniques, to create a new form of contemplative plainsong for the 21st century.

Together, bass clarinetist Jeff Reilly, cellist Christoph Both and organist Peter-Anthony Togni have developed and refined a unique sound of immense dynamic and tonal range. The members of Sanctuary are dedicated to live performance and the trio re-defines accepted traditions of presentation, making a Sanctuary concert a unique contemplative experience.

“Completely addictive… this is perfect chill-out music whose subtle atmospherics and unashamed quest for beauty make it far more compelling than such a description normally implies” – The Indepedent on Sunday, UK​

“Music of grace and power, shadows and light, a plainsong for the 21st century”

“The virtuoso clarinetist Jeff Reilly extends his cadenzas across the history of sound, from monotony to modernism, in a performance that is dominant and often hypnotic”
— Norman Lebrecht

SARAH HAGEN – Classical Piano
Oct 7 @ 7:30 pm

The Programme features a beautiful and sparkly selection of pieces inspired by birds — it will leave you soaring!

Selections include Papillons, Op.2 by Robert Schumann, The Nightingale by Franz Liszt, Sad Birds by Maurice Ravel,  The Call of the Birds by Jean-Philippe Rameau, Ballet of the unhatched Chicks by Modest Mussorgsky, and The Lark by Mikhail Glinka.

“Hagen is one of the most expressive piano players that I have ever seen perform…”

Canadian pianist Sarah Hagen has performed in concert halls and has been heard on broadcasts throughout North America and Europe. Awarded as the British Columbia Touring Council’s 2015 Touring Artist of the Year, and mentioned by The Guardian (Charlottetown) as the Best Classical Performance of 2014, her interpretations have been described as “outstandingly inventive” [University of Waterloo Gazette], ”played flawlessly” [ReviewVancouver] and “with great sensitivity and heart.” [Vernon Morning Star]

A visionary and an idealist, Sarah presents conceptually innovative performances, involving photography, dance and spoken word. She is Artistic Director for Pro’ject Sound, a performance project involving live piano with large-scale projected images. Her collaboration “Exultation” with Canadian Slam Poetry Champion Brendan McLeod explores Rachmaninoff’scomplete Opus 32 Preludes through poetry and storytelling, and premiered to critical acclaim in February 2017.

An avid collaborator, Sarah has performed with cellist Ariel Barnes, violinist Rachel Barton Pine, violist Nicolò Eugelmi, cellist Phillip Hansen, violinist Robert Uchida, tenor Benjamin Butterfield, soprano Barbara Livingston, Trio Accord, Ballet Victoria, the Emily Carr String Quartet, the Bergmann Piano Duo, jazz pianist Søren Bebe, hornist Allene Hackleman, and clarinettist Keith MacLeod, among many others. Sarah has appeared as soloist with the Victoria Symphony under the baton of Mei-Ann Chen, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony conducted by Mark Skazinetsky, the West Coast Symphony Orchestra with conductor Bujar Llapaj, the Symphony Orchestra of the Pacific with conductor Arthur Arnold, and the Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra. As a First Prize Winner in the 2013 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition, Sarah was awarded the opportunity to perform solo at New York City’s Carnegie Hall in May 2013. Her debut solo album, Glass House Dancing, was nominated for Classical Recording of the Year at the 2009 Western Canadian Music Awards.

Sarah has been been heard nationally on CBC Radio 2’s In Concert in a live recording with violinist Joan Blackman and cellist Ariel Barnes. She was also featured in a live recording and discussion of Schumann’s Papillons on CBC Radio One’s North by Northwest with host Sheryl MacKay. In December 2013 she released her second album, Devoted: Music of Robert & Clara Schumann, featuring solo piano works and Clara Schumann’s Romances, Opus 22 with violinist Martin Chalifour, concertmaster of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In Helsingborg, Sweden in 2006 she recorded with Swedish cellist Marit Sjödin, creating Concealed Diamonds, an album of masterworks for cello and piano.

Sarah’s primary teachers and mentors have been Jamie Parker, Glen Montgomery, Gregory Chaverdian, and Christine Purvis. She has completed five residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts and enjoyed two terms there as collaborative pianist.

During her years on the west coast of Canada, Sarah founded nine concert series, curating each one individually, and inviting artists from across Canada and around the world to share the stage with her. She has toured throughout Sweden numerous times with cellist Marit Sjödin, violinist Ian Peaston, and Per Johansson, principal clarinet of the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra. Other international concerts of note include a recital at DePaul University with Oto Carrillo, hornist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, a performance of Schumann’s Piano Quintet in Darmstadt, Germany with members of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, a performance at Carnegie Hall with Polish flautist Krzysztof Kaczka, and concerts as part of the Schlern International Music Festival in northern Italy.

Sarah premiered her one-woman musical comedy show to critical acclaim in the summer of 2016, touring it to various Canadian fringe festivals. Described as “one of the best hours I’ve ever spent at the Fringe” [The Coast (Halifax)], “Perk up, pianist!” tells the tale of a touringclassical musician remaining optimistic in the midst of challenging and ridiculous situations. Of the show’s debut at the Toronto Fringe Festival, Montreal Rampage wrote, “Hagen reminds us the beauty of how an honest solo performance can make you so easily fall in love with its performer.”

In addition to writing wine reviews for her blog, “ARTIST WINES! – Uncorking musician-priced cellar secrets,” Sarah is an enthusiastic tap dancer. She currently resides in Toronto.

Sarah’s motivation is the belief that music has the power to be a window into our souls, regardless of our age or musical knowledge.

 

“Hagen is one of the most expressive piano players that I have ever seen perform…it was immediately apparent that this would be a piano concert beyond the norm…the level of passion that Hagen possesses — when it comes to experiencing, interpreting and expressing art — is something quite extraordinary.” — The Guardian (Charlottetown) March 2014

“Her Bach and Haydn are outstandingly inventive – this is a young woman ready to take interpretive risks.” — University of Waterloo Gazette

“Exquisite phrasing and a refreshingly imaginative approach make her one to watch.” — Marcia Adair, TheOmniscientMussel.com

THE TRIP TO SPAIN
Oct 10 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presentation


Following their culinary outings to England’s Lake District in The Trip and down the Italian coast in The Trip to Italy, Steve Coogan (Philomena) and Rob Brydon (Tristram Shandy) team up once more to indulge in Iberian epicurean delights, trade barbs, and compete to perfect the ultimate Michael Caine impression, in Michael Winterbottom’s much-anticipated The Trip to Spain.

 

After the success of Coogan’s travelogue and reviews of English and Italian restau­rants, The New York Times commissions a new piece; this time, he is sent to Spain with the ever-reliable Brydon in tow. Soaking in the culinary riches of the Basque region, which boasts several of the best reviewed restaurants in the world, and moving through the coun­try to the Mediterranean coast, Coogan and Brydon devour envy-inspiring meals, while reviving their iconic and devastatingly funny impressions of Michael Caine, Al Pacino, and Roger Moore (with a new and accomplished Mick Jagger joining the roster).

 

Between the meals, jokes, and meandering drives throughout the Spanish countryside, cracks begin to show in Coogan and Brydon’s optimistic veneer. Despite their insistence that they are at “the sweet spot” of their lives, the pair spends substantial amounts of time reminiscing about their younger selves and earlier films (Philomena is mentioned repeat­edly), while negotiating the difficult task of coming to terms with their older selves, and more settled family lives. Still crackling with the improvisational energy and vibrancy of the first two installments, The Trip to Spain provides a reliable mix of breathtaking vistas, indulgent meals, and Coogan and Brydon’s hilarious odd-couple comedy.

 

Directed by Michael Winterbottom

Featuring: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Rebecca Johnson, Claire Keelan

OBIT
Oct 24 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presentation

 

A fascinating and lively look at the inner-workings of the team responsible for The New York Times’ obituary section, Obit chronicles the ways in which life, death, and the written word intersect to create personal and public legacies that resonate long after our time is up.

Director Vanessa Gould presents the obit department as an entertaining and eccentric crew of writers and editors are charged with the daunting daily task of chronicling the life and legacy of complete strangers. With a primary focus on the details of life rather than death, the writers also wryly acknowledge that their profession doesn’t exactly make them popular at cocktail parties. However, as new assignments fall onto their desks, each writer carefully delves into the histories of politicians, celebrities, inventors, authors, and adventurers, gently detangling the complex minutiae of a lifetime of familial myths, newsworthy accomplishments, and amusing anecdotes.

 

Obit quietly meditates on a seemingly morbid subject that, more often than not, provides surprisingly life-affirming moments of humour, nostalgia, and humanity. Whether compiling the obituaries for public figures like Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, and Philip Seymour Hoffman, or telling the life story of the man responsible for Kennedy’s masterful televised debate against Nixon, the writers approach each assignment with equal parts gravitas and curiosity.

 

A look into the archives of “advance obits,”or obituaries that are prepared and continually edited for still-alive famous figures, may seem like a gloomy fact of the business, but it is also a testament to the department’s dedication to presenting accurate and timely historical records of personal legacies. Engaging, lively, and warmly funny, Obit proves to be an unexpectedly vibrant celebration of life.

 

Directed by Vanessa Gould
With: Bruce Weber, William McDonald, Margalit Fox

Documentary USA  1h 30m

 

 

 

“At The New York Times, the obituary beat is no career dead-end. Editor William McDonald gets to weigh the desires of writers like Bruce Weber and Paul Vitello, who seem often to fall in love with these people they’ll never meet. Those writers make for fun company here, however much they claim people avoid them at cocktail parties.”
