OFRA HARNOY

Sun Sep 29th @ 3:00 pm

A Port Theatre Spotlight Series Presentation 

Ofra Harnoy has established herself as one of the great cellists on the world’s concert stage. Born in Israel, Ofra immigrated to Canada with her family at the age of six and by age 10 she had already made her professional debut as an orchestral soloist. A five-time JUNO award winner, Ofra has recorded over 40 solo albums spanning many musical styles and genres. Ofra also became the first Canadian classical instrumental soloist since Glenn Gould to gain an exclusive worldwide contract with RCA Victor.  She received the Order of Canada, played at the request of Prince Charles, President Bill Clinton and three Canadian Prime Ministers. Ofra is a stunning performer of unparalleled calibre.

Ofra will be joined onstage by Mike Herriott, trumpet flugelhorn, & piano, and Kinza Tyrrell, piano

The wonderfully varied programme will include J.S. Bach Adagio from Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue in C Major, BWV 564; David Popper Hungarian Rhapsody, Op. 68; George Gershwin “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess; Fritz Kreisler Liebesleid; a Beatles Medley, and Seal’s Kiss From A Rose,  among other rich and enticing pieces.

“Silken tone, lyrical phrasing and breath-taking command of the cello…” – Los Angeles Herald
