Piva Presents: A Jazz Christmas
Featuring Karin Plato
One of the biggest influences in music for me personally is the “Queen of bebop” Sheila Jordan. In her 90s the ever youthful Sheila continues to spread the joy of jazz-based music with her recordings and through music education and with her live performances. She is an inspiration in every way! — Karin Plato
An acclaimed Canadian Juno Award nominated jazz vocalist, composer, and recording artist, Karin Plato brings her stunning style to the stage to lead the evening with her incredible band. Bringing a new and cool take on Christmas classics, Karin adds a twist and tinsel to these timeless tunes. With a warm and natural sound, Karin will mesmerize you and leave you with that warm Christmas feeling.
Piva Presents: Jazz at the Anvil
A new and exciting jazz series is coming to New Westminster! Starting September 2022, and running through to March 2023, Piva Presents: Jazz at the Anvil is bringing together some of the very best musical talent Vancouver has to offer. The goal of these shows is to not only elevate the appreciation of music and tell the story of jazz, but also to engage, strengthen, and amplify arts in the community.
With new takes and nods to classic artists, like Dave Brubeck and Ella Fitzgerald, and arrangements inspired by warm nights in New Orleans and Havana, these shows will move you in new ways and welcome you in to the rich world of jazz.
The proceeds from each show will be given to the music department at New West Secondary School, to enrich the lives of the students and provide new opportunities for them to explore the music in their heart.
