  1. Gord Grdina’s NYC Quartet — Cap Jazz series. Juno award-winning and Vancouver based Oud/Guitarist Gordon Grdina is known for his incredible versatility and ability to bring a fresh and edgy vibe to any ensemble. His sound is a combination of his interests in mainstream jazz, free-form improvisation and Arabic classical music. A protégé of jazz great Gary Peacock, Grdina is a well-respected contributor to the jazz and world music scenes and is constantly being sought out for new projects. His latest ensemble, the Gordon Grdina Quartet, is inspired by the complexity of Bartok, the freedom of Ornette Coleman, the intensity of Soundgarden and the delicacy of Webern. His carefully formed quartet combines the traditions of jazz improvisation, complex and memorable compositions and a dynamic freedom to the music that ebbs and flows with each tune. With Oscar Noriega on saxophone, Russ Lossing on piano and Satoshi Takeishi on drums. Saturday, April 8, Western Front
  1. Mozart’s Great Mass in C Minor & Opera Choruses — Along with Mozart’s brilliant Mass, the full orchestra and chorus will thrill with popular opera choruses including Brindisi (La Traviata), Anvil Chorus (Il Trovatore) and March of the Toreadors (Carmen). Saturday, April 8 and Sunday, April 9, The BlueShore at Cap
  1. Jack Broadbent — Cap Global Roots series. The new master of the slide guitar, British singer/songwriter Jack Broadbent has been indelibly marked by the major blues figures he listened to as a child while jamming with his musician father. From rural England to the bustling streets of major cities all over Europe, Broadbent made a name for himself through his incredible improvisational skills while busking, equipped with only a guitar, an amp, and a flask for a bottleneck. A new incarnation of audacious and modern blues, his deeply soulful voice and phenomenal slide guitar licks will deliver a performance that will leave you speechless. Sunday, April 9, St. James Hall
