The Trail & District Arts Council presents Ô-Celli: Fait son Cinema, a unique 8-piece Belgian cello ensemble with a sonorous cathedral sound, on Saturday, November 30 at 7:30 pm. Part of the Performing Arts Trail series in The Bailey Theatre.

What can sound better than a cello? Eight cellos!

The cello’s sound is the closest to the human voice, and the magnificently creative Ô-Celli capitalize on this in their concerts to move beyond stylistic boundaries. These eight classically trained musicians reinvigorate both classical and popular music to enchant the audience through a repertoire of both original and arranged pieces.

For this show they will be playing: R.Strauss, “Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30”; Verdi, “Ouverture de la Forza del Destino”; Bach, “Toccata et fugue”; - Fauré, “Pavane, Op.50”; Rota, “La Strada”; Bernstein, “West Side Story”; and John Williams.

Ô-Celli’s concerts are invitations to travel, as these passionate cellists, plucked from celeberated orchestras and chamber ensembles, play only for their own and their audience’s pleasure!

Regular Musicians who play with Ô-Celli are Alexandre Beauvoir, Jean-Pierre Borboux, Stephanie Huang, Corinna Lardin, Yoori Lee, Shiho Nishimura, Raphaël Perraud, and Sébastien Walnier

“Ô-Celli is magnificently unique” - N. Bowman, The Daily Courier

“Eight classical cellists (of very high caliber)…fill the entire sound spectrum with infinite nuances…Because it takes talent not to spoil the originals while giving them a second life.” - ​Stéphane Renard, LECHO.BE

“These eight cellists offer concerts that dust off classical music, renew the repertoire and attract a spellbound audience.” - ​Aurélie Koch, JV Magazine no. 74

“…incredible reserves of imagination and an innate sense of pleasure. This is what ô-celli develops with incomparable verve.” - ​Serge Martin, Le Mad/Le Soir

This contemporary roots duo of sibling songwriters, Leela Gilday and Jay Gilday, hits notes of nostalgia, hope, humour in songs about their family history, connection to the land and water, and the twists and turns of fate.

Barka by Girovago with Original Music by Gypsy Kumbia Orchestra - Tues., Feb. 25 at 7:30 pm A celebration of life where Afro-Colombian percussion, Balkan melodies, dance, and circus merrily intertwine in a show filled with delirious energy, sound, and visual richness.

The Knitting Pilgrim April - Tues., Apr. 15 at 7:30 pm A multidisciplinary one-man show that combines personal storytelling, image projection, and three huge, knitted panels that look like stained glass windows. Following Kirk Dunn’s fifteen-year artistic and spiritual journey the play explores why people struggle to get along, the meaning of art, and the power of love to overcome major obstacles (and minor mishaps) through hand-knitting.
