Vibrant tones and song will fill St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral on Friday, November 9th. The Autumn Concert, set for 7 p.m., will feature both young and seasoned performers and is a fundraiser for the St. Saviour’s Food Pantry Garden.
Clinton-Plus-One is a musical duo composed of saxophonist Clinton Swanson and acoustic bassist Rob Fahie. Both musicians have extensive performance experience locally, nationally, and internationally. All with a jazz flavour, their repertoire will include original works and classic tunes. Fahie's beautiful full-bodied soulful tone on acoustic bass mixed with Clinton's warm but sassy saxophone sound makes vibrant collaborative music.
Nine-year old Alexander Borche will follow, performing “Taking it Easy” by composer Martha Mier on piano.
The Fominoff Sisters, Toinya and Netta, who have performed in the Kootenays for decades, will harmonize in Russian and English and accompany themselves on harp and guitar. Contralto Joy Green will offer “My Mother’s Song” and selected folk songs a capella. Sounds of the Heart, a Doukhobor ladies choir led by director Elsie Campbell, will also perform a capella, singing in English and Russian for peace, justice and the environment.
The St. Saviour's Food Pantry was established in 2000 to help feed hungry people in our community. The Food Pantry Garden was established some years later to provide fresh produce for those who come.
A $10 donation is requested. For further information, please phone 250-352-9871.
