Yardbird Suite Virtual Series – Holly Sangster Duo
September 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Holly Sangster, Saxophone
Holly Sangster is an Edmonton-based musician entering her third year in MacEwan University’s Bachelor of Music program. She started off with the piano at age 7, which eventually led her to the clarinet, voice, cello, and saxophone. Heavily influenced by musicians such as Braxton Cook, Ella Fitzgerald, and Cannonball Adderley, she aims to bring her voice and instruments together in her music. Holly has performed in many venues in Calgary and Edmonton including The Jack Singer, Ironwood, Cafe Koi, Blues on Whyte and The Aviary. She hopes that her performance at the Yardbird Suite will illustrate her passion and love for music.
In the spirit of our incredible collective effort to flatten the curve, your Yardbird Suite, Edmonton’s premiere jazz venue since 1957, is presenting a series of live online performances for the Yardbird Suite Virtual Series.
We broadcast live from the Yardbird Suite. There are no audiences other than the performers and audio technician who are physically distant, do not share the same equipment, nor come into contact with each other. Every effort has been made to comply with AHS safety guidelines.
Curated by Edmonton musician Stephanie Urquhart, the all-Edmonton lineup features a variety of solos, duets, and instruments. Performances will run Fridays & Saturdays 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
