Description:

From Bach to Benny Goodman Bridge & Wolak
February 6, 2021 at 2:00pm EST

The Dan School of Drama and Music would like to invite you to an uplifting/winter cheer concert featuring our own faculty Dr. Kornel Wolak (clarinet), who is a member of the renowned Canadian ensemble, Bridge & Wolak with accordionist Michael Bridge. The complete show was filmed in July 2020 at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts in Kingston, ON. Without a live audience, B&W took the opportunity to film in typically-unseen locations around the hall, including an intimate backstage tour of The Isabel.

The concert is 1h6m, followed by a live Q&A on Zoom with the artists.

Musically unique, Bridge & Wolak are the world's only duo of clarinet & digital accordion. This show features a joyful collection of well-known baroque, jazz, folk and cinema music – including Bach, Goodman, Gershwin, Bechet, Chopin, and Moriconne — all in Bridge & Wolak's original arrangements. Fun-loving gentlemen, their riotous stage banter has earned them praise such as The Victor Borge’s of the 21st Century (Live on Stage) and Watch and Be Amazed! (CBC).
