With special guest from Türkiye, Serkan Alagök, celebrated jazz drummer and virtuoso classical bassoonist
Multi-Juno Award winning composer and pianist, David Braid (“a jazz genius to call our own” – Maclean’s Magazine) unveils a set of new compositions inspired by 20 years of international artistic collaboration and concertizing.
This inspired concert of “multinational folk melody meets jazz imagination” has already delighted audiences in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Georgia, Türkiye, and France. The show was sent on a diplomatic tour in 2022 to former Soviet States with its distinctly positive message about Canada’s multiculturalism and international peacemaking.
Braid has formerly been a guest artist of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra, University of Manitoba, and Brandon University.
