Event description
Lethbridge's Summer classical and art music festival is back featuring a roster of accomplished, local professional artists!

About this event

This year's summer concert series promises to be a Centric MusicFest like no other. In lieu of tickets, donations will give you either online or in-person access to the concerts (with a minimum $10 donation suggested). All concerts are at the Sterndale Bennett Theatre.

Those who give $30 or more will receive full access to the entire festival.

Give $50 or more, and receive full festival access AND a signed copy of your choice of previous Centric performers' albums: jamani duo's "Timeline", or pianist Charles Richard-Hamelin's "Chopin: 24 Preludes" (while supplies last, deliveries outside of Southern Alberta only possible on a case-by-case basis).

For those who give $100 or more, in addition to all of the above perks, you will get a spot on our patrons list, membership in Primo Music Association (the non-profit society that runs Centric), and access to discounted early bird tickets for next year's events (until August 31, 2022). **Pick any date and make one transaction of $100.**

Please note: If you would like to donate the minimum amount for full festival access (all concerts), just pick any one date of the festival and make one transaction at the date selection screen and we will add your name to the list that receives full festival access. This is preferable to make your donation more effective as each separate transaction will have fees deducted.

Concerts will be streamed online using YouTube and you will receive a unique link emailed to you the day before the concert. As admission is by donation, refunds are not possible.

Concert IV: Wed. August 4, 2021 - 7pm MT

Sterndale Bennett Theatre

The Unconventional Trio

Josh Davies, trumpet

Nick, Sullivan, bass trombone

Deanna Oye, piano

Comprised of individually-accomplished performers, the Unconventional Trio (University of Lethbridge faculty members Josh Davies, Nick Sullivan and Deanna Oye) was formed with the goal of performing compelling chamber music adapted for the uncommon instrumental combination of Trumpet, Bass Trombone, and Piano.

We will present works adapted or originally written for this mighty triumvirate, including music by Americans Eric Ewazen and Arthur Frackenpohl, brass duets by Brad Edwards and Steven Verhelst (including one hot off the press!), a famously hilarious operatic duet by Rossini, and a Ballade by British composer, York Bowen (who was coincidentally awarded the Sterndale Bennett Prize in his youth -- the same composer/performer/educator and namesake of our wonderful performance venue!).  Enjoy this concert of unconventional sonorities as we emerge from what has been a truly unconventional year! 

For more information on Josh, Nick, or Deanna, please visit our website (scroll down to Artist Lineup).

Audience choice:

Pastorale by Eric Ewazen (b. 1954)
