Gypsy jazz next in music series

Moment Musicale continues Jan. 22 in Surrey.

The second concert in the Moment Musicale series takes place next week in Surrey.

The Golden Violin opened the series of chamber concerts last September. And on Jan. 22, award-winning quartet Van Django will take to the stage.

Van Django’s members include violinist Cameron Wilson, guitarist Budge Schachte, guitarist/cellist Finn Manniche and bassist Brent Gubbels and the group’s music is well-rooted in the gypsy jazz of 1930s France. The ensemble performs regularly in the Lower Mainland and across Canada.

“Our first concert, The Golden Violin with Calvin Dyck and Betty Suderman was such a success and all of our subscribers are excited about Van Django,” said Jinhee Park, producer of the series.

A unique feature of the concert series is that a student string chamber group from Surrey shares the stage with the professional artists.

The concerts are for all ages and are subscription based ($57 adults; $52 students/ seniors). No individual concert tickets are on sale. The subsequent concerts are: a scholarship fundraiser at Langley Kwantlen Auditorium featuring Calvin Dyck and Arioso Strings on Feb. 25 at 7:30 p.m. and a concert March 19 at 7:30 p.m. with Joel Stobbe and a cello ensemble at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Surrey (10177 148 St.). The upcoming Jan. 22 concert also takes place at St. Luke.

Tickets are available by calling 604-765-9032 or 604-584-6446. Visit www.jinheeparkpro.com for more information.
