Musique Chez Nous Series presents The Fraser Hollins Quartet

Musique Chez Nous is pleased to welcome bassist and composer Fraser Hollins and his quartet on March 15th at 8 p.m. on the Centennial Theatre stage. The first guest in the student-run series from Bishop’s Music Department since the series was abruptly cancelled in February 2020, Hollins will present his second opus Treehouse with fellow jazzmen, American drummer Brian Blade, Joel Miller on saxophones, and Jon Cowherd on piano.

Originally from Ottawa, now based in Montreal, Hollins recorded Treehouse in 2016 and released the 11-tracks of original compositions in 2019. He now is preparing a Quebec and Ontario tour with his original bandmates following an extensive pandemic-imposed pause.  The concert will feature music from Treehouse as well as some selections from his sophomore release, Aerials, and new material.

The Fraser Hollins Quartet featuring Brian Blade will also offer a masterclass to pre-selected Jazz combos from the Music Department at Bishop’s University and a short performance of selections from their new CD. The workshop will take place the following day, March 16th, at 11:30 a.m. in Bandeen Hall. All are welcome to this free event.

Join us for this very special Musique Chez Nous concert with the Fraser Hollins Quartet on March 15th at 8 p.m. at Centennial Theatre. Tickets are $25 and free for all students upon presentation of a valid student ID and must be reserved in advance. Tickets can be purchased in advance or on the day of the concert at the Centennial Theatre Box Office 819-822-9692 or visit Musique Chez Nous on Facebook.
