Jack Kopstein is a well regarded senior musician in Chilliwack. I will ask him to write a short bio for you or mc to announce it. What do you think?
The opening music for the Earth Day has an exciting news! Our very own local composer Jack Kopstein wrote a piece uniquely for Chilliwack – Sprit of Chilliwack. It’s written for trumpet, trombone and piano. I invited first trombone player from CMO to join us and he is very enthusiastic about it. Jack, the composer is willing to present at the event and briefing about his composition (multiculturalism and beautiful nature). I suggested to play “Spirit of Chilliwack” right after the mayor cutting the ribbon then Jack’s introduction about the piece. Following with trio (piano, trumpet and trombone) playing “Celebration” which is also composed by Canadian composer, Linda Niamath. What do you think?
Korbitron is bringing a ton of amazing perfumers too for the afternoon!!
