The Pender Harbour Music Society is presenting a dynamic musical duo next Sunday, March 30, at 3 p.m. at the School of Music.

Known internationally as soloists, chamber musicians and fashionistas, Nadina Mackie Jackson and Guy Few celebrate a passionate musical relationship.

Playing together for the past five years, they have had four new solo concerti, three double concerti, one triple concerto and one symphony composed for them.

Since 2005, they have performed in Canada and the United States as concerto soloists, a multi-instrumental recital duo and recording artists. They recently recorded their third CD, After Hours, a collection of their favourite music for trumpet, corno, bassoon and piano.

In 2006, they recorded their first CD of concerti for trumpet, bassoon and string orchestra. This disc, Bacchanale, won Best Classical Orchestral Album 2009 from Just Plain Folks Music Awards. Their second CD, Romanza, followed in 2007. The CBC commissioned two solo concerti (Mathieu Lussier) and a double concerto (Alain Trudel) and featured both Jackson and Few in a broadcast of the premieres from the CBC, Glenn Gould Studio in the spring of 2008.

As dedicated teachers and public speakers, they have given educational concerts across Canada for young people from kindergarten to high school. They have been featured speakers, master class guests and interpretational coaches at the University of British Columbia, Ithaca College (U.S.) and Scotia Fest (Halifax). Both performers maintain studios at Wilfrid Laurier University, while Jackson also teaches for the University of Toronto and the Glenn Gould School. Their joy for teaching through music has lead to their new commedia dell'arte inspired family show, Buzz and Crow, which was premiered at the Ottawa Chamber Music Festival in August 2010.

Tickets are $25 available at Harbour Insurance, John Henry's Marina, Sechelt Visitor Info Centre and Gaia's Fair Trade. See more at www.penderharbourmusic.ca.
