A Yamaha Concert Grand Piano
will be the premier instrument for a
cavalcade of Jazz, Rag-time, Classical
and Blues performers throughout the
twelve days of the Festival.

Performances on this exquisite
marvel of Yamaha craftsmanship and
grand piano evolution will range
from solo recitals to jazz and blues
ensembles in shows and concerts.

 

In recognition of the dedication to the
arts of the many fine instrumentalists
and vocalists in our region performing
in other musical idioms, the Festival
will be presenting a series of recitals
and showcases featuring a selection
of excellent teachers and students
from throughout Simcoe County.

 



 

 


"This venue has one of the best pianos I've ever played in the Toronto area. So if you want to hear some great music in a totally acoustic (un-amplified) environment with a great piano and great musicians, this is a rare opportunity, and one that should be taken advantage of."
Mark Eisenman - Canadian Jazz Pianist

MARK EISENMAN

The Jazz Report's 1999
Acoustic Pianist of the Year

Mark Eisenman is one among a handful of the top 'in-demand' jazz pianists in Toronto. Born in New York City but based in Toronto since 1972, Mark started studying the piano with his father. By the age of eighteen he had resolved that he would be pursuing the piano as a career interest. He entered into the music program
at York University and after a short time discovered jazz music.
With his introduction to this idiom his musical interest peaked.

Under the tutelage of John Gittins and others, Mark ultimately took a degree in Fine Arts, and as testimony to his continuing dedication to the learning process, and until recently conducted jazz workshops at York as a part-time faculty member. His teaching has expanded to include "The Jazz Camp" and classes at Mohawk College in Hamilton in addition to a lot of private teaching in his home studio.

Mark has performed in many different venues with numerous eminent Canadian and U.S. jazz artists including the following: Blue Mitchell, Woody Shaw, Nat Adderley, Ed Bickert, Rob McConnell, Sam Noto and Pat LaBarbera. He has also had numerous radio appearances and is well represented on recordings,
the latest of which is Mark's debut recording as a leader, "The Chant". He has toured Canada extensively with various groups.

"His professional status is based largely on his skill and versatility as an ensemble player, but what marks him most is an ability to produce, no matter what the musical company, distinctive well-structured solos".
- Toronto Star
