Quesnel Live Arts presents Wolak Donnelly Duo Jan. 12, 7:30 p.m. at the Chuck Mobley Theatre. Armed with a clarinet, a piano and their personable stage presence, Kornel Wolak and Chris Donnelly present a remarkable blend of classical and jazz music rarely heard in live performance.

From revered classical pieces such as Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A MKajor, to Gershwin’s famous Rhapsody in Blue and Oscar Peterson’s classic Hymn to Freedom, Chris and Kornel captivate audiences with virtuosity, familiar melodies and a profound passion for music and performing.

Throughout the program, Chris and Kornel also showcase their talent as solo artists. Highly praised on two continents for his glorious tone, precise technical control and musical imagination, Polish-born Kornel Wolak is well on his way to a major career as a soloist and chamber musician. Canadian-born Chris Donnelly is a Juno-nominated pianist, composer and improviser known for his ventures into jazz and classical music.

Tickets for the Wolak Donnelly Duo are $25 (adults) and $20 (seniors and youth); available at Save-On Foods, KMAX, Green Tree Health, at the door or by calling 250-747-2207.
