Selkirk Pro-Musica presents the Paul Landsberg Sextet, performing the music of film composer, Henry Mancini, Monday, February 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Shambhala Music & Performance Hall.
“I’ve always loved playing Mancini’s compositions, but wanted to dig much deeper into his many decades of material," said Landsberg.
The sextet is going to start out with the film noir era and include selections from the 50’s show, “Peter Gunn”. There are some gorgeous compositions from lesser known films that will be presented with jazz arrangements. But of course, there will also be Mancini’s iconic songs such as, “The Pink Panther,” “Moon River”, and “Baby Elephant Walk.”
Guitarist Landsberg, has assembled some of the finest musicians from these parts, including, Clint Swanson on woodwinds, Selkirk College’s newest faculty member from Toronto, Dave Restivo on piano, Rob Fahie on bass, and Steven Parish on drums and percussion. And to top it all off, Laura Landsberg will be the featured guest vocalist for the evening.
The state-of-the-art Shambhala Music & Performance Hall will provide incredible acoustics for this fantastic concert. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 available at Otter Books and at the door.
