  • Central Stories Museum and Art Gallery - Cathy Irons with the Classical Jazz Quartet.

Cathy Irons with the Classical Jazz Quartet

Inspired by Jaques Loussier to blend their musical worlds, three jazz musicians and classical violinist Cathy Irons perform familiar and famous works by Bach, Vivaldi and Sarasate, interspersed with popular numbers such as Chaplin's "Smile" and Jacob Gade's "Jealousy."

With informative and engaging commentary, music chosen to make you smile and an intimate setting, it's all set for an enjoyable evening ahead.

The idea for the Classical Jazz Quartet began when Cathy and Barry were on the West Coast preparing for a Baroque Concert performance. Having a little time on their hands, they started to improvise on their carefully rehearsed repertoire, and have never looked back since. Now CJQ consists of four outstanding professional Christchurch-based musicians: Cathy Irons (violin), Barry Brinson (piano), Michael Davis (bass) and Doug Brush (drums). Each a recognised musician in their own field, the four musicians revel in getting together, ignoring convention and freely cross the boundaries of music with conviction and delight. All have extensive NZ and international experience.

Tickets: $5 - $25 at Central Stories or online at www.eventfinda.co.nz. Limited doorsales will be avaliable.
