Kitimat Concert Association brings you: Christopher Hall and the Comic Quartet

The name says it all!

As the days grow shorter and colder and the winter blues start to creep in for many, a dose of light-hearted quality entertainment is just what you need to lift your spirits and get you in the right mood.

If you have never played in an orchestra/music ensemble and know nothing about classical music, you should not miss Christopher Hall and his Comic Quartet coming to Mount Elizabeth Theatre on Saturday, November 16.

Also, if you have ever played in an orchestra/ensemble and know everything about classical music, you shouldn’t miss it either!

Brought to you by the Kitimat Concert Association, this is truly a show for all ages and music tastes. Christopher and his quartet will have you roaring with laughter and spell-bound with their musicianship and comedy.

Christopher Hall is the former principal clarinet of the Orchestre Metropolitain in Montréal (conductor: Yannick Nézet-Seguin) who often had his colleagues in stitches, but that did not always amuse the conductor.

These days, he performs as a standup comedian and does television and radio shows in both English and French. He has appeared in such prestigious comedy festivals such as Just for Laughs, The Winnipeg Comedy Fest, and the Grand Rire in Quebec City.

Last summer, he performed his Comic Orchestra show at the Just for Laughs festival in front of a crowd of 3000, to rave reviews.

Enjoy great classics from the quartet’s repertoire – excerpts from Mozart, Bach, and more, as well as Christopher’s hilarious anecdotes behind the music.

Between the pieces, Christopher Hall turns into a stand-up comic and makes fun of the musicians, the music and especially of all the rituals surrounding the performance of classical music we have grown accustomed to.

This is to remind us that classical music is for everyone and does not require a PhD to be appreciated. The show is educational and very funny. Christopher Hall is an outstanding musician and entertainer. You will walk out of the auditorium with a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

Remember to mark your calendars – Christopher Hall, November 16 at 8 p.m. Tickets are available from Bradley’s Bait and Tackle in the lower level of the City Centre Mall.
