Selkirk Pro-Musica finishes off a successful concert season Monday (April 28)at 7:30 p.m. in St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral with the local ensemble Trio Voyage, an acoustic trio that explores music from many different corners of the globe.

The trio plays traditional music rich in diversity as well as their own, “world inspired” compositions. Improvisation plays a prominent role in the repertoire of the group as the performers freely interpret music from around the world, making each performance a unique experience for the listeners and performers alike.

Selkirk College’s Sound and Music program forms the backdrop to the creative energy of this ensemble with members Don MacDonald violin/composition, Paul Landsberg, guitar and guest vocalist Laura Landsberg on faculty.

Doug Stephenson, guitar and bass (married to faculty member Melody Diachun) is often heard in performances at the College.

Individually, the musicians have performed throughout Canada, the U.S. and Europe with leading jazz and contemporary artists as well as keeping busy schedules as music educators and composers.

Joining the trio for this performance is Paul’s wife Laura who manages her time between being a mother of six, teaching college and performing as a professional jazz singer. As the daughter of Canadian jazz legend Ian McDougall, Laura comes to her talent naturally.

Tickets are $15 and available at Otter Books and at the door.
