… And this brings us to A Month of Music in Toronto for January 2019 (Part II). Admittedly, these bleed into February a little, but they help to bring in together the final pieces. From Alternative Rock, to Piano, and even the elusive oboe, the three-round off the selection.
Kongos: 1929 Tour
Genre: Alternative Rock. This genre has a lighter, but still gutsy feel to it. It’s not for everyone, and definitely can be an acquired taste, but for anyone who enjoys this genre, really enjoys it. Join the KONGOS on Friday, January 25, 2019, at Lee’s Palace. Tickets start at $30 and can go up to $300 for those interested in being the ultimate VIP;
Eric Huebner, Piano
Genre: Piano, classical. The beauty. The romance. The melodies. The melancholy. It’s all there with the piano. The versatility of the instrument speaks to its magnificence but also heeds a warning to the challenge it presents. The challenge to learn, and the challenge to be proficient. Eric Huebner takes the piano to a plateau of vigor and energy rarely seen. He chooses to challenge your mind and ears with. His personality on the instrument is a trek worth voyaging across the border for. Eric Huebner takes the stage at Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall (University at Buffalo) in Buffalo, New York, on Friday, February 1, 2019. Doors at 7:00 PM, show at 7:30 PM. With tickets only at $15, you’re sure to enjoy this unique way of musical expression.
Megan Kyle, Oboe
Genre: Oboe, classical. And if you're staying longer in Toronto at the beginning of the month of February, come back to the Lippes Concert Hall to enjoy Megan Kyle, a professional on the oboe. The oboe is clearly one of the most difficult instruments to learn and play beautifully. With its double-reeded mouthpiece, it’s rare to see this played professionally, and even rare to hear it be played professionally and solo. Megan Kyle’s performance happens on Saturday, Feb 9, 2019.
--Crossing the border isn’t fun, but staying at the Best Western Plus Toronto Airport Hotel would be a sure way to gain convenience when travelling to either Bloor Street, or all the way to Buffalo for any of these out-of-the-norm performances. The hotel gives you free hotel to airport shuttle service, but being located by the hotel means your options for getting anywhere are amplified.
