WNMF 3: Kinan Azmeh’s CityBand
Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada:
World-trotter Kinan Azmeh is no stranger to WNMF audiences, having appeared on our stages both as clarinet soloist and as composer.
This year, Kinan is joined by his critically acclaimed CityBand, as the NYC-based quartet occupies the Royal Aviation Museum to delight the audience with their enchanting fusion of classical, jazz, and traditional Syrian musical strains. Azmeh’s expressive clarinet meets Kyle Sanna’s rustic guitar, soaring at times over the dynamic and volatile backdrop of John Hadfield’s percussion and Josh Myers’s double bass.
Kinan Azmeh’s CityBand will be performing original works; the selections will be announced from the stage. Virtuosic and intimate in equal parts, this is an event not to be missed.
This in-person concert is available to WNMF Pass Holders only.
This concert will be livestreamed on MyWSO.tv the day of the concert and be available for 30 days after.
