Seasoned "musician of the heart" Hans Christian will be performing at Knox Presbyterian Church this Friday. Oct. 12.
A virtuosic concert on cello, ethnic string instruments, and live looping, Christian's versatility as performer, recording artist, and producer for over 25 years has created a legacy of concerts and recordings that have touched people’s hearts around the world.
His unmistakable cello playing moves the listener with a haunting beauty, and his use of live looping and various ethnic string instruments expresses a universal musical language that transcends boundaries, cultures, and generations.
He reaches deep into the listeners’ soul to connect with an ancient wisdom that feeds us in a time of turmoil and unsettled energies. His music opens a gateway to healing and balancing.
As a co-founder of the reknowned World Music group RASA he has developed a devoted fan base with his virtuosic creativity, and his affiliation with Wisdom University as artist-in-residence has garnered him rare access to the Cathedral in Chartres, France for repeated performance and recording opportunities.
Recent noteworthy collaborations include a double CD with Andrew Harvey (Rumi Symphony) and award winning Canadian artist Harry Manx (You are the Music of my Silence). Christian is also a member of The Guru Ganesha Band and will be touring the United States’ East Coast this fall.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20, and $10 for students and are available at www.ticketscene.ca or at the door. For additional information can be found at www.allemandemusic.com.
