The quick and dirty deets:
What’s happening: GRYPHON TRIO raises awareness for Progress Place with a concert & CD launch, “BROKEN HEARTS & MADMEN”.
When & Where: Sun., Oct. 2 at 8 PM / Lula Lounge, 1585 Dundas Street West
Why this is fabulous: For starters, Patricia O’Callaghan is featured on the recording and will sing at the launch. She is sophisticated and pulls off a flower in her hair like nobody’s business. And her Spanish is bang-on! And the rep is typical Gryphon: some traditional (like Beethoven) and some not-so-traditional chamber music: Piazzola … Leonard Cohen … Nick Drake ….. the Gryphons dedicates this performance to raising awareness for Progress Place, a recovery centre for people with backgrounds of mental illness. Progress Place provides friendship, employment, education, and housing in a supportive environment.
