DOUBLE BILL with Amina Claudine Myers
Time: 8:00pm
Price: Adult: $35 / Student/Senior: $25


It’s only been four years, but it seems too long since Myra Melford has played in Guelph! Meanwhile, the challenging pianist has been named a Guggenheim Fellow, taught in San Francisco and Berkeley, premiered her multimedia Language of Dreams, and released her first solo album. The American pianist/composer is a festival favourite, having played here with violinist Jenny Scheinman, violist Tanya Kalmanovitch, and in a fabulous trio with Mark Dresser and Matt Wilson. This year, Melford is appearing solo, and once again Guelph audiences have a chance to hear a pianist whom the San Francisco Chronicle calls an “explosive player, a virtuoso who shocks and soothes, and who can make the piano stand up and do things it doesn't seem to have been designed for.”
