Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. found me and my family at the Guelph Youth Music Centre in Guelph hosting my Student Recital. 23 talented students played a large variety of music (from Blues to Rock, Celtic to Classical) and entertained an audience of friends and family. I never cease to be amazed at what my students are able to pull off – the sheer beauty of music and the variety of expression and styles of this wonderful art form and “language of the soul”! Of course, the after recital reception (food and goodies) were awesome as well. Have I ever told you that music and food are the best combination … I have posted some “action” highlights of the afternoon on my flickr account. Check them out here. Thanks to Ken Hadford, Kyle and Le-Anne Dick for these great pics! I also video taped some parts to show the students in their next lesson. A big thank you to all my students and parents who made the afternoon such a success. TD
Trevor Dick is a popular electric and acoustic violinist. His playing evokes images of Jean Luc Ponty, Hugh Marsh, Mark O’Connor and Mark Wood (Trans-Siberian Orchestra) all melded together.
About The Band
Award-winning instrumentalist Trevor Dick and his long-time bandmates have entered new territory with the introduction of the Trevor Dick Band’s debut album, New World. This world/jazz/folk fusion project with classical and modern pop/rock underpinning takes you from Africa to Latin America to Europe and North America, erasing all borders.
New World is interesting, experimental, and improvisational. It is complex music, yet accessible to the average listener. We plan to perform this music internationally at Folk, Jazz, Blues and World Music Festivals.
