Selkirk Pro-Musica finishes off a successful concert season on April 28 with the local ensemble Trio Voyage, an acoustic trio that explores music from many different corners of the globe.

The trio plays traditional music rich in diversity as well as their own, “world inspired” compositions. Improvisation plays a prominent role in the repertoire of the group as the performers freely interpret music from around the world, making each performance a unique experience for the listeners and performers alike.

Selkirk College’s music program forms the backdrop to the creative energy of this ensemble with members Don MacDonald (violin/composition), Paul Landsberg (guitar) and guest vocalist Laura Landsberg on faculty. Guitar and bass player Doug Stephenson (married to faculty member Melody Diachun) is often heard in performances at the college.

Individually, the musicians have performed throughout Canada, the U.S. and Europe with leading jazz and contemporary artists as well as keeping busy schedules as music educators and composers.

Their concert goes this Monday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral. Tickets are $15, available at Otter Books and at the door.
