Martin Mayer: The Grande Piano Show
October 26, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm| $33
THE GRANDE PIANO SHOW
130, 11110 104 Avenue NW
Hailed by the Chinese press as “Canada’s Prince of Piano,” pianist and composer MARTIN MAYER has been performing on sold-out concert tours of China since 2001. After many years of bringing his unique blend of instrumental fusion, classical crossover, and smooth jazz music to audiences abroad, Martin brings his show back to Edmonton for a homecoming concert you won’t want to miss!
A NIGHT OF ORIGINAL MUSIC
“The Grande Piano Show” starts with Martin’s original music, including the award-winning latin piece “Europa Boulevard”, a tribute to Canada in “Cabin by the Lake”, foot-stomping rhythms in “Irish Dancer” and a heartfelt throwback to his classical training in “Reverence.”
We then incorporate world-famous songs that Martin has enjoyed playing for audiences in many concerts, including Broadway classics such as “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Miserables, the themes from “Phantom of the Opera” and “Chess”, and scores from “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Games of Thrones” and of course “Jurassic Park.”
…AND CLASSIC CHINESE HITS!
And no Martin Mayer show would be complete without a few classic Chinese hits to round out the evening, include “Liang Liang” (涼涼), “Love is Like a Tide” (愛如潮水), “Thin Red Line” (扎红头绳) “New Dream of Butterflies” (新鸳鸯蝴蝶梦), the “Butterfly Lovers Concerto” (梁祝) and “Meet” (遇⾒見), among others.
A PORTION OF PROCEEDS BENEFITING MUSICOUNTS
MusiCounts, Canada’s Music Education Charity, puts instruments into the hands of kids that need them the most. Martin is proud to donate a portion of the proceeds from this concert to MusiCounts. You can also add a donation amount to your tickets, and 100% of the amount you choose will go directly to MusiCounts!
