Pianist Wnukowski leads Africville Museum fundraiser
Repertoire to include a celebration of black composers
Leading the way is Polish-Canadian pianist Daniel Wnukowski, who will offer a repertoire that is a celebration of black composers.
Hailed as a "pianist to watch" by New York Classical Review and a "dashing pianist" by the Sunday Times, Wnukowski has performed throughout Europe, North America, South America and Asia in prestigious concert halls.
He was recently awarded a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts to perform outreach concerts for remote communities in Canada and founded the Collingwood Summer Music Festival.
Local entertainers joining in the celebration are Shauntay Grant, Halifax-based writer, storyteller and performance artist and the city's third poet laureate, and rising star Zamani, an 18-year-old singer-songwriter, who will deliver her own brand of R&B, soul, urban jazz and pop.
