MEASHA BRUEGGERGOSMAN
Dec 17 @ 7:30 pm

We are excited to welcome international artist Measha Brueggergosman back to the King’s Theatre stage, along with Aaron Davis on piano and Rob Piltch on guitar.

The show will include holiday tunes, jazz favourites, music from her recent album “Freedom Songs”, and who knows? maybe even some opera! Whatever the mix, we know Measha will lift the lid off the house.

Motivated and hungry for new experiences, Ms. Brueggergosman’s career effortlessly embraces the broadest array of performance platforms and musical styles and genres.

On the opera stage, her recent highlights include Giulietta and Antonia Les contes d’Hoffmann, Elettra Idomeneo, Madame Lidoine Dialogues des Carmélites, Jenny in Weill’s Mahagonny, Emilia Marty Věc Makropulos, Hannah in Miroslav Srnka’s Make No Noise, and Sister Rose in Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking while on the concert platform she has worked with the San Francisco Symphony and New World Symphony Orchestras and conductors such as Daniel Barenboim, Michael Tilson Thomas, Franz Welser-Möst, Sir Andrew Davis, Gustavo Dudamel and Daniel Harding.

Measha began her career predominantly committed to the art of the song recital and has presented innovative programs at Carnegie Hall, Washington’s Kennedy Center, London’s Wigmore Hall, both the Konzerthaus and Musikverein in Vienna, Madrid’s Teatro Real, as well as at the Schwarzenberg, Edinburgh, Verbier and Bergen Festivals with celebrated collaborative pianists Justus Zeyen, Roger Vignoles, Julius Drake, and Simon Lepper.

Her forthcoming highlights include her Australian debut at the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and in recital at the Sydney Opera House, a return to the Teatro Real, Madrid and to the Barbican, London with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, as well as performances with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and Vasily Petrenko.

Her first recording for Deutsche Grammophon, Surprise, includes works by Schoenberg, Satie and Bolcom and is one of the most highly regarded debut albums of recent years. Her subsequent disc Night and Dreams, which features songs by Mozart, Brahms, Strauss, Schubert, Debussy, Duparc and Fauré won several awards and her recording of the Wesendonck Lieder with Franz Welser-Möst and the Cleveland Orchestra earned her a Grammy nomination.

Off the stage, Measha is just as active: autumn 2017 sees the release of her memoir (published by HarperCollins); she appears regularly on primetime TV (most recently advocating on behalf of contemporary Canadian literature); and leading Canadian children across the country in song, in celebration of the nationwide campaign for music education.

Measha Brueggergosman champions the education and involvement of new audiences and holds several honorary doctorates and ambassadorial titles with international charities.

The O’Brien Family Benefit Concert in support of the Annapolis Area Food Bank

The O’Brien Family has lived in Canada since 2004, when the family left England for a new life on Vancouver Island. Over the years the family has made three albums, played hundreds of shows, and even toured Europe.Their sound is a blend of luscious harmonies and great songs, played in a folksy bluegrass style. The Family love to perform and get everyone singing at their shows. They are delighted to be performing a concert in support of the ANNAPOLIS AREA FOOD BANK. This will be the very first time the family has performed on the East coast, and it is because Paul and Louise [Mom and Dad] and Millie [eldest child] have moved out East to Bridgetown, NS and Rothesay, NB respectively. The family also sing many songs written by both Paul and youngest member of the family Fintan. Fintan has his own career as a singer songwriter and is about to release a new album of his own songs. Both Fintan and Paul will be touring Europe together for the very first time during September and October. Come out and see the O’Brien Family and at the same time make a big difference to many families over Christmas.

DAVE GUNNING & JAMES KEELAGHAN
Jan 14 @ 2:00 pm
Dave Gunning

“Truly, what makes Gunning so remarkable as an entertainer is his rare gift to be able to befriend the audience as a whole from the stage throughout the course of the concert. And, indeed, you do feel as though he’s as good of a friend as any after a night of songs, stories and lighthearted laughs.” – The GuardianCall it the silver lining in the cloud of a brutally cold Nova Scotia winter. When acclaimed folk singer/songwriter Dave Gunning decided it was time to make his 11th solo album, he found the bleak weather outside a blessing, not a curse. “We were literally snowed in, but the power was on and I was good to go,” he says of the making of that album, Lift.

Eleven albums in, Dave Gunning has become a truly masterful songwriter, one who has earned real peer respect from such Canadian folk songwriting legends as Ron Hynes, David Francey, and James Keelaghan. “I grew up listening to people like Ron Hynes,” says Dave. “I look up to them but then it hits me sometimes that I’m their peer and they like my stuff too. It’s a weird headspace, flipping from being a fan to being a peer.”

 

James Keelaghan
Called Canada’s finest singer-songwriter by one of the most respected and lauded music journalists of the last 50 years, James Keelaghan is an artist who has proven to be a man for all seasons.
As the calendar pages have turned, for almost a quarter of a century now, this poet laureate of the folk and roots music world has gone about his work with a combination of passion, intent and intensity, and curiosity.
Fusing his insatiable appetite for finding the next unique storyline Keelaghan also forges his pieces with brilliantly defined craftsmanship and a monogrammed artistic vision, making him one of the most distinctive and readily identifiable voices of not only the Canadian scene, but as a member of the international singer-songwriter community.
Armed with a songbook that has enlightened and enthralled, and been embraced, by audiences around the world, Keelaghan’s life as an artist is one that is a perpetual journey on so many levels.

SUSAN AGLUKARK
Jan 28 @ 7:30 pm

THIS CONCERT IS SOLD OUT!!!

Nunavut’s first ever Juno Award winning Inuk singer/songwriter, Susan calls herself the accidental artist. Susan grew up in Arviat, Nunavut and with “no musical orthodoxy” to draw from, Susan’s early years were spent learning as she was headlining.

Susan’s early writing (The Arctic Rose-1992) was a series of songs drawn from the thing she had left, a life of uncertainty. The past 25 years and the following 7 albums has seen Susan set on a path of personal discoveries, cultural reconnections and personal healing, a very different path than the one she imagined when she left her home. In her singing/songwriting career, Susan is most proud about reaching a place in  her life where she knows she is right where she belongs, singing/songwriting and falling in love with creating.

Susan has garnered 3 Juno awards, received The Order of Canada in 2005 and most recently was awarded the Governor Generals Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award (June-2016).

Susan has performed for HRH Queen Elizabeth, Jean Chrétien, Brian Mulroney, Nelson Mandela, Billy Graham and The Countess Of Wessex. Susan is founder and chair of the Arctic Rose Foundation and is an Advisor on the Collateral Damage Project.

LADY BIRD – Oscar Presentation
Feb 16 @ 7:00 pm

King’s Film Society Presents:

Lady Bird
USA
1h 34min
Comedy/Drama

In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.

Review from The New York Times:
Greta Gerwig’s ‘Lady Bird’ Is Big-Screen Perfection

“You want to give thanks for how wonderful it is, how wise and funny and full of grace.” – Wall Street Journal

 

 

Tickets: $10 Adult, $9 with Film Buff Card, $8 Youth.

All prices include HST.
