On Saturday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. the Fredericton Playhouse presents its final Spotlight Series show of the 2016-2017 season – Swingin’ with Oscar, with the Rémi Bolduc Jazz Ensemble.

One of Canada’s most honoured musicians, Oscar Peterson was widely regarded as one of the greatest jazz pianists of all time. A highly accomplished soloist renowned for his remarkable speed and dexterity, meticulous and ornate technique, and dazzling, swinging style, he earned the nickname “master of swing.”

The Rémi Bolduc Jazz Ensemble pays tribute to Peterson in this special performance. Known for intense yet controlled musicianship, breathtaking precision and a magnetic stage presence, Bolduc is one of Canada’s greatest jazz saxophonists. Joined by his skilled band, he captivates audiences with dazzling virtuosity and stunning maturity.

In addition to this performance, the Playhouse is pleased to present a pre-show Experience More! Wine Tasting and Artist Talk starting at 6 p.m. at Corked Wine Bar. This will be an opportunity to sample a series of fine wines while Rémi Bolduc discusses jazz, and offers insight into the evening’s upcoming performance.

Tickets for Swingin’ with Oscar are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office by calling 458-8344 or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
