Watch Now! Live Stream Concert Featuring Tricia Edwards
 

From Their Home to Yours: Music and Musings in the Time of Quarantine

We joined Tricia Edwards, jazz pianist and keyboardist, on Wednesday, June 24 for a special live streamed performance of some of her favourite tunes and some thoughts about the role of art and music in this time of isolation. 

Watch the concert now on Stagestream Live.

Tricia Edwards; Performer | Composer | Bandleader

Tricia Edwards’ musical journey has taken many diverse paths. With formative years spent training and performing in the classical realm, to more recent years playing in the jazz idiom, to her current passion in exploring the world of latin music, Tricia seeks to incorporate all of these languages into her musical expression.

She earned both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in piano performance from the University of Alberta, with summer studies at the Banff Centre and Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. During this time she was a national finalist in the Canadian Music Competition and performed with the University of Alberta Symphony Orchestra and the Vienna Sinfonietta. Studies in jazz resulted in the release in 2008 of her debut jazz recording “Joyspring.”

Tricia now maintains a full schedule based in Calgary, working as a solo artist, as leader of her own jazz trio/quartet, as a classical collaborative pianist and as the bandleader of the salsa band “Klave.”

Her sophomore recording “Intaglios”, released January 2018, sought to blend her three musical passions for classical, jazz and latin genres and met with a great reception, including charting on the National Earshot jazz charts for the weeks of March 13 and May 15 2018.

“Intaglios” was also awarded a Gold Medal for album and composition in September 2018 from the Global Music Awards and won MusicYYC’s Best Jazz Recording of the Year for 2018.

“Tricia Edward with her album Intaglios has given us a product of very high caliber with very interesting and challenging compositions and arrangements, with a way of playing using the Cuban montuno very effectively. Highly recommended! Hilario Durán, Cuban Canadian Pianist,
Composer, Arranger.

“Tricia comes through, with intriguing compositions and encompassing command of the form in both her playing and arranging. A powerful statement.” Peter Zak, New York-based jazz pianist and composer.
