About the Musician:
Chris Maric is a Calgary-based musician who has performed and worked with Cantos Music Foundation and a wide variety of musical groups across the country. Chris’ passion for creating live soundtracks for silent movies is evident in his performances, both musically and visually. His most recent performance for F.W Murnau’s classic thriller, Nosferatu, included an eclectic group of musicians who gracefully mixed styles of music that are usually not associated with one another.
After the film, come up and try out some of the unique instruments used in the performance like this Theramin...
For this performance, Chris will be performing solo with an assortment of instruments courtesy of Cantos Music Foundation, coupled with an exuberant energy for a performance that is not to be missed.
Audience members are invited on stage after the performance for an opportunity to try out some of the instruments.
