Wintertainment: Make it a Double

Tidemark hosts pair of award-winning pianists for one night of Christmas fun

Join acclaimed musical entertainer Matthew Krell with special guest Evan Grahek for Wintertainment: Make it a Double – an evening of two-piano fun and virtuosity with a Christmas twist on Dec. 21.

The award-winning pianists will be presenting favourite works selected from the last two-hundred years of solo and duo piano literature, in a wildly entertaining setting.

Grahek is a talent of prodigious level, having only started piano at age twelve. By seventeen he was performing some of the most difficult repertoire written for the piano. Grahek has won numerous competitions in his home state of California and has performed in many international festivals and venues in locations including Russia, Austria, Albania, Croatia, Slovakia, Israel, and Italy. Currently, he maintains an active teaching studio in Los Angeles and performs regularly.

Krell is an award-winning pianist and accomplished actor who has been engrossed in the performing arts for over fifteen years. He has been recognized in competitions, festivals, and masterclasses in Canada and the States. Krell performs at many concert galas and events every semester, often receiving audience choice awards. He has been praised for his technical capacities, raw musicality, comedic sensibilities, and audience appeal. He is a sought after collaborative artist, with over nearly 3000 hours of accompanying experience and is currently completing a triple-emphasis Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance, Pedagogy, and Music Composition at university in Southern California.
