The Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils (OSAC) along with its member Arts are proud to present Prairie Debut Presents the Henderson-Kolk Duo in concert.

The performances are part of the 2017/2018 Stars for Saskatchewan Concert series and will be in southwest Saskatchewan Feb. 27-28. Tuesday, Feb.  27, they are at the Sky Centre starting at 7:30 p.m. in Swift Current. On Wednesday, Feb. 28 they will be Centre Street United Church in Shaunavon at 7:30 p.m.
Since forming in 2004, the Henderson-Kolk Duo has established itself as one of North America’s premier classical guitar duos.
Drew Henderson and Michael Kolk met at the University of Toronto and after their first performance together, quickly cultivated a musical chemistry that has resulted in a dynamic and exciting performance style. Their program will feature an exciting array of music with an emphasis on the duo’s original arrangements.
Of interest are the transcriptions that take familiar works into the new sonorities of the two-guitar medium, creating a fresh and intricate sound delivered by the sensitive playing of the Henderson-Kolk Duo. They will also feature works specifically written for two guitars, such as the beautiful pieces by Canadian Patrick Roux. This is definitely a concert not to be missed.
