A high-energy ensemble, the Proteus Saxophone Quartet was originally formed in Paris in 2011. The members are united through their combined curiosity and love for exploring chamber music specifically written for the saxophone quartet. With a strong presence across Canada, they strive to share their music with audiences and communities through performances, masterclasses and workshops with students and the public.
Tommy Davis currently lives in Montreal, where he is active in the improvised
music scene, as well as working with many different ensembles and a growing teaching studio. Holly DeCaigny divides her time between Edmonton, Alberta, where she will be pursuing a DMA in saxophone performance, and Calgary, where she is an active freelance musician and teacher. Mark Michalak lives in Calgary, Alberta. He teaches a diverse studio of students from beginners to University level, as well as being an active music teacher in the school boards as a clinician and a substitute teacher. Michael Morimoto lives in Vancouver, BC, where he has a successful career as a music instrument repair technician and freelance musician.
Their repertoire ranges from the familiar Bach and Piazzolla to new music written especially for the ensemble by Canadian composers, and lots more in between.

FREE MOVIE IN CELEBRATION OF AFRICAN HERITAGE MONTH
Black Panther is a gorgeous, groundbreaking celebration of black culture
Marvel’s Black Panther is a cultural phenomenon, a historic box office success that’s brought in rave reviews and sparked conversation all over social media and traditional media alike. There are no signs of the excitement abating, either, as the conversation about the film has evolved from discussions about the importance of representation into something grander: a rather groundbreaking celebration of black culture.
With an all-star collection of majority black talent both in front of and behind the camera, Black Panther, under the direction of Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed), is about more than the latest superhero’s journey; it’s also about black culture’s journey, and it points toward a future where it could be the culture. It acknowledges and celebrates everything from traditional African society to African-American political debates, from the power and beauty of black women to the preservation of identity, all within the lush confines of the fictional African nation of Wakanda.
All told, Black Panther’s greatest legacy may not be what it’s done for Marvel, Hollywood, or box office records, but what it’s done for the culture. In Wakanda, which offers much to marvel at for audiences of all backgrounds, black viewers in particular have found a cultural oasis that feels like nothing we’ve seen before. — Vox

The Stanfields are a multiple award-winning five-piece Folk’n’Roll band based in Halifax, Canada. Combining Rock music with solid nods to Celtic and Americana – they play what they want, sing what they feel, and leave nothing on the table.
Formed in 2008, The Stanfields have since released 5 albums and toured extensively throughout North America and Europe, sharing the stage with Queens of the Stone Age, Flogging Molly, Frank Turner and Dropkick Murphys among many. Coming as no surprise to the band’s sizeable international fanbase,
The Stanfields have taken a “predictably-unpredictable” turn with their upcoming recording “Classic Fadeout” (January 2020 on GroundSwell/Believe), seeing the band draw upon relatively gentler influences such as The Band, Stray Gators-era Neil Young and 70’s west coast country rock and infusing them into their distinct, swaggering brand of storytelling folk’n’roll.
