World of percussion coming to Rimbey

SUBMITTED Renowned percussionist Bruce Landmark will host an evening of music in Rimbey Jan. 30. Landmark became a percussionist in Grade 7, and became the principal percussionist for the Calgary Philharmonic, right after high school. He received his university training at Bloomingdale. Ind., and then began to tour. After touring Europe, he was asked to help build a symphony orchestra in Maracaibo, Venezuela. It has become one of the best orchestras in the world. Aside from performing, Landmark has taught in universities, and is now teaching at Canadian University College in Lacombe, and Lakeland Colleges in both Vermilion and Lloydminster. The program will include a real mix of music, from classical, to Latin rhythms, to sacred, to folk. There will be something for everyone. Soprano Tracie Skeet-Brook will join him in performance, bringing with her a mix of vocal styles. Also presented will be students who have shown remarkable abilities, and now will have the opportunity to perform with professionals, as an important step in their musical growth. This is a family-friendly program, with something for everyone. The concert is part of the Landmark Musical Connoisseur Series, formed to bring musical excellence to smaller venues, as well as being a platform for growth for students that show great potential for future musical careers. The concert will take place Sunday night, Jan. 30 at the Church of the Nazarene, 5213 51st Street, Rimbey, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at Rimbey Value Drug Mart, or at the door.
