SPECIAL PAY-WHAT-YOU-WILL CONCERT!!!
Beverley Johnston and Marc Djokic create a super-energy in a completely new performance dynamic. Combining violin with marimba, vibraphone, hand drums and sometimes a musical saw, the duo display their individual and combined virtuosity with a down-to-earth approach and a dynamic on-stage chemistry between them.
Beverley Johnston is one of Canada’s leading percussionists, having recorded 6 solo CDs and performing extensively throughout the world. She teaches at the University of Toronto and was named the Canadian Music Centre Ambassador in honour of her exemplary commitment to the performance of the music of Canadian composers.
Marc Djokic is a Nova Scotian violinist and winner of the 2017-2018 Prix Goyer. Among other distinctions, he is a Prix Opus laureate and former Canada Council Instrument Bank recipient. Djokic is concertmaster of l’Orchestre classique de Montreal. He first and foremost studied with his father Philippe Djokic, one of Canada’s great soloists. In fact both his parents, Lynn and Philippe, are musicians, as is his sister Denise.
