Ernie Kalwa featured at Gallery Concert Sunday

ABOYNE - The Exhibition Hall at the Wellington County Museum will ring with the tones of saxophones and the colours of jazz and Bosa Nova on Nov. 13 at 2pm.

The Ernie Kalwa Jazz ensemble is back for an encore in the second of the popular 2011-12 Gallery Concert Series.

Kalwa is the leader and founder of the Royal City Saxophone  Quartet. He played professionally for the first time at 14 and continued to be active in dance bands, Dixieland bands and saxophone quartets. With savings from his paper route money, he bought his first tenor sax on his 16th birthday, with some help from his dad.

Since then he has studied under prestigious  musicians like Pat LaBarbera and James Houlik, and travelled to festivals throughout Canada and the United States.

Sunday’s  concert is a tribute to the jazz of the 1960s. Joining him are Robert McWade, tenor saxophone; Bradley Moggach, soprano and alto saxophone; and  Larry Moser, alto saxophone. The group has recorded extensively , in a wide variety of genres.

After the concert, refreshments are served and the audience has an opportunity to speak with the performers.

In the concert hall, the audience will  be surrounded by the log cabin quilt display from the textile collection of the Wellington County Museum and Archives.
