Musique Royale

Delve into the positive power of Christmas – in an atmosphere of depth, reflection, lyricism and celebration of intense beauty. Music that boldly shifts down into the heart of space, openness, and contemplation and for just over an hour, gives you a chance to go slow in a fast time with Blackwood Duo and Janelle Lucyk.

The wide ranging performance experience of Peter-Anthony Togni and Jeff Reilly in their duo, Blackwood, includes hundreds of concerts touring Russia, China, Europe and North America performing in a range of contexts: jazz, contemporary classical, choral, orchestral, string orchestra, and Gamelan orchestra. The glue that holds them together is a common love of improvisation, a passion for taking musical risks, and a deep desire to to connect with their audience.

Hear your annual Christmas favourites in a new interpretation. O Come, O Come Emmanuel, Coventry Carol and Silent Night will be interpreted with deep praise and appreciation. Selections from Reilly’s captivating new work To Dream of Silence, and Togni’s NS Masterworks award-winning Responsio are featured alongside Advent and Christmas music.
