Special Event


Lara St. John  I  Violon

Matt Herskowitz  I  Piano

Canadian-born violinist Lara St. John has been described as “something of a
phenomenon” (The Strad) and a “high-powered soloist” (New York Times).

When she takes to the stage with JUNO- nominated pianist, composer, and arranger Matt Herskowitz, an unstoppable musical dream team of unbridled energy is created. Together they curated a special program featuring novel arrangements and improvisations on jazz and folk standards from New Orleans to Canada.

A breathtaking musical evening captured live from Montreal’s Cabaret Lion d’Or.
