"...Schwonik colors the [music] with an active imagination and serious
technique...”
- Frank Alkyer, DownBeat Magazine
*Karl Schwonik*
Named one of Calgary’s ‘Top 40 Under 40’, YAMAHA Drum Artist and legally
blind drummer Karl Schwonik grew up on a farm near Gwynne, Alberta,
Canada. As a child, he was exposed to a wide range of musical situations
ranging from jazz to polka. Fresh out of high school, Schwonik embarked
on a tour with 2-time Canadian Country Music Award Nominee,
Heather-Dawn. This was followed by an invitation to study at the Banff
Centre where Schwonik was the youngest participant ever in the long-term
career residency programme.
Schwonik has an extremely active schedule; he has completed over thirty
substantial tours throughout North America as a leader. In his travels,
Schwonik has performed in country barns, world-class jazz clubs and
concert halls such as Carnegie Hall and the John F. Kennedy Center. His
third of four recordings on Chronograph Records, 1+4, was number one on
Canadian jazz radio charts for nearly 2 months. Both 1+4 and Schwonik’s
first album, Visions From the Farm, were nominated for a Western
Canadian Music Award for ‘Jazz Recording of the Year’.
In 2008, Schwonik founded the Wetaskiwin Jazz Society
(WJS) in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. The WJS strives to build
awareness for the arts in the central Alberta region with its three main
programs: the Wetaskiwin Jazz Camp, Jazz-in-Schools and a series of
community concerts. In 2011, Schwonik joined the Board of Directors for
the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA). The AFA is a government
agency responsible for disbursing nearly $30M annually in grants and
scholarships to artists and arts organizations in Alberta.
In demand internationally as both a guest artist and instructor,
Schwonik has taught students of all ages at over two hundred educational
institutions. Among the many honours, awards and distinctions Schwonik
has received are: winning the TD Grand Jazz Competition at the Montreal
International Jazz Festival; the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta’s
Emerging Artist Award; the VSA Arts International Young Soloist Award;
the AFM International Diversity Award; and the Queen’s Jubilee Award.
The list of supporters of his projects, research and initiatives
includes the Canada Council for the Arts, the Alberta Foundation for the
Arts, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Anne
Burrows Music Foundation and numerous others.

Recent performances include Queen’s University, Belfast, the University of Huddersfield (International Computer Music Conference), the University of Göttingen, Germany, and the University of Cambridge.

With an international reputation as a specialist in early keyboard instruments, Douglas Hollick studied with Peter Hurford, Marie-Claire Alain and Gustav Leonhardt. He has played widely both here and abroad, and teaches in Clare and Trinity Colleges, Cambridge. Recent years have seen him playing fortepiano as well as organ, harpsichord and clavichord, complementing his interest in the music of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Douglas was awarded a year 2000 Churchill Fellowship to visit North Germany and Denmark researching organs and other keyboard instruments of Buxtehude and the young J S Bach. His recordings on Riverrun Records are Harpsichord and organ music of Christophe Moyreau, Buxtehude, master and pupil, recorded in Buxtehude’s church of Sct Mariae at Helsingør in Denmark, Music from the period of the French Revolution for harpsichord, square piano and organ, and Music of the Baroque avant-garde for harpsichord and organ released in July 2007 as a tribute to Buxtehude in his tercentenary year. He has just recorded a further organ CD on the Metzler organ of Trinity College Cambridge, with works from the Andreas Bach Buch including the Passacaglias of both Buxtehude and Bach. This is due for release later this year. See www.rvrcd.com

Venue:
Fellows' Drawing Room, Murray Edwards College

Description:
The ‘Inter Alios’ choir is a joint venture between Churchill College where it serves the Christian Chapel at Churchill College, and Murray Edwards College where it serves the ‘Humanist Happenings’ Series: a new format which is broadly similar to chapel services, but with no theological content. A typical event features a short address on a topical theme, partnered with music and poetry to match. The choir thus provides its members with an opportunity to experience the traditional (Christian) Cambridge Choral Scholar experience and to sing the great works of that repertoire, while also participating in the creation of a new and unique offering.
