Yardbird Suite Virtual Series – Peter Zawalski
May 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Peter Zawalski, Guitar
Musically out-spoken composer, guitarist, and producer, Peter Zawalski, weaves melancholy melodies with classical and avant-grade influences to shape a sound he can call his own. Peter will be preforming solo arrangements from his original group, Mischief Ensemble, alongside compositions by Mark Segger, and music written by the late Lee Konitz.
During his time at MacEwan University, Peter had the privilege to privately study and research 20th century composer Oliver Messiaen with Bill Richards, Dean of Music. Peter spent his 4th year under the mentorship of MacEwan’s composition head, Kent Sangster, where Peter co-directed the MacEwan Jazz combo, arranging 90 minutes of original music and arrangements for the ensemble. Peter has studied privately with renowned musicians Rubin De-Toledo, Ryan Davidson, John Stowell, and Mo Lefebvre.
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.
For the remainder of the Yardbird Suite’s regular season, from Friday, May 1 until early June, watch jazz musicians on Yardbird Suite’s Facebook page at facebook.com/YardbirdSuite perform live from isolation.
Curated by Edmonton vocalist Mallory Chipman, the all-Edmonton lineup features a variety of solos, duets, and instruments. Performances will run Fridays, Saturdays, and Tuesdays from 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
The Yardbird Suite Virtual Series is made possible due to the generous support of the Edmonton Arts Council and the Edmonton Community Foundation.
