Tempest Strings

Tempest Strings met for the first time in the spring of 2014 on the shores of Vanier Park in Vancouver, British Columbia. Hired as the quartet-in-residence for the acclaimed Shakespeare Festival Bard on the Beach, they dedicated themselves to the interdisciplinary task of bringing to life Alessandro Juliani’s score for the summer production of Shakespeare’s work of the very same name.

Praised for their inspired and seamless integration of music into the play, they performed for over 30,000 people and to critical acclaim. Inspired by the music and wedding magic of the summer, Tempest Strings are bringing their gorgeous sound and dynamism to concerts, weddings and events around the Vancouver/Whistler area.

Program options include celtic, modern and classical music.

La Candela

Marvellous and unusual—La Candela quickly rose to international reputation as a dedicated force of the Cuban repertoire.  Their signature west coast Cuban sound is inspired by the rich traditions of La Gran Isla, and no less informed by the sights, sounds and openness of their East Van community.  From Haida Gwaii to California to the Midwest, La Candela has been winning fans since its inception in 2001 by bassist Mark Beaty and pianist Cary Garcia. Always a hit with the salseros, the band’s rhythmical sophistication and infectious playing bring the most adamant lawn chair devotees to their feet. With rich brass, gorgeous piano and poppin’ bass, congas, timbales and vocal harmony all-around, this micro salsa orchestra plays hard and hits like a locomotora.
