Wolak-Donnelly Duo – Sunday March 20, 2016

Wolak-Donnelly Duo

Wolak-Donnelly Duo – Piano & Clarinet
Sunday March 20, 2016 7:30 pm

Armed with a clarinet, a piano and a mischievous sense of humour, Polish born Kornel Wolak and Canadian Chris Donnelly, delightfully weave jazz into the classics. Playing favourites from Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto to Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, to Oscar Peterson’s Hymn to Freedom, Kornel and Chris captivate audiences with their virtuosity and sense of fun. The young men obviously love music and performing – both as exceptional soloists and as a beautifully harmonized duo. Their talent is not limited to the stage. They frequently work with schools and communities, offering educational performances and workshops.

In September 2013 they released a CD “Common Ground”, which is available for download from iTunes.
