Lovestream: A Tribute to Coltrane's 'Ballads' Album
Mon. February 14th 2022 7:00 - 8:30 (All Ages)
Available on livestream only all Valentine's Night after 7 pm, Ryan Oliver, Louis Rudner, Hans Verhoeven, and Ashley Wey bring you a night of classy, all-love songs from one of the most romantic instrumental albums of all time: John Coltrane's 'Ballads' album. As Horwitz from NPR aptly puts it, "This is 'fall in love' music."
If you watch at home, you can cook a Valentine’s dinner for your special someone, light the candles, and we’ll provide the music. Featuring delicate jazz piano, crooning saxophone, soft bass, easy drums and surprise guest artists.
This is a special fundraiser, livestream-only show raising money for Hermann's Jazz Club. Due to the fourth wave, we are in financial distress. We urgently need your help to protect Hermann's as a Canadian cultural asset and haven that nurtures and celebrates incredible local and national talent. All proceeds from this show will go directly to Hermann's. With your generous support these last 20 months, you've helped us accomplish nothing short of a miracle.
You can show your love by:
