Bridge & Wolak Music & Comedy Duo: Bach to Benny Goodman
Our Promenade Series continues with a performance by the Bridge & Wolak Duo, our 2022 Flonzaley Resident Artists, Michael Bridge (accordions & piano) and Kornel Wolak (clarinet & piano). In a classy, virtuosic and comedic show, the Bridge & Wolak Duo play a mixture of music from “Bach to Benny Goodman” featuring a joyful collection of well-known standards from the Baroque, classical, jazz, and folk repertoires. Selections include music by Bach, Handel, Saint-Saens, Bechet, Goodman and Hank Williams.
Bridge & Wolak comprise an internationally acclaimed music & comedy duo, integrating traditional acoustic instruments with 21st century digital technology. The pair performs their own uniquely reimagined repertoire of classical, world and jazz fusion.
With deft virtuosity and endless wit, Bridge & Wolak have been called the ‘Victor Borges of the 21st Century.’ “Fun-loving gentlemen (with seven degrees in music), they are both globe-trotting musicians and educators,” wrote Canadian Broadcasting Company of the pair, who were nominated for the BC Touring Artist of the Year award in 2019. “Watch and be amazed!”
