Clarinetist and saxophonist Peter Stoll and concert pianist Adam Zukiewicz – known together as Sophisticated Fusion – will make a return appearance March 2 in Sarnia, performing their curated collection of classically and jazz-inspired pieces during their show on stage, From Chopin to Jazz.

Not only will the musicians perform music ranging from Mozart to Benny Goodman, but the two post-secondary music teachers will provide the audience with highly absorbing background knowledge on these selections.

During their last appearance in a border town, the couple enjoyed interacting with the public, Stoll said, and look forward to reconnecting with local music lovers.

“We are very happy to be back,” he said. “There’s a really good crowd in Sarnia, and it was a great experience playing there.”

Attendees can expect to be immersed in an evening of lively, upbeat and uplifting music, Stoll said, with the duo performing hand-picked pieces from a variety of genres and eras.

“We really want people to have fun and enjoy themselves, so it’s a presentation of music that crosses all kinds of genres and styles,” he said. “It’s music that Adam and I really love – there’s melody, melody and sound in every track.

“We’ll take people on a little tour – we start with the classics and work through the style periods on both clarinet and saxophone with piano.”

The idea behind From Chopin to Jazz is simply to create musical magic on stage, Stoll said.
“Everything is uplifting and fun, and we present each track so people get an idea of ​​what we’re doing here, why we’re going there next, and what’s interesting about this music.” We’re just having a great time on stage presenting that,” Stoll said.

After COVID halted live, in-person performances for two long, painful years, local music fans are eager to return to the theater for live performances, said Sarnia Concert Association President Jim Elliott.
The sophisticated fusion will provide an enthusiastic reception, he added.

“These artists – Peter and Adam – are very popular with our audience,” he said. “We’ve had them here before and they’ve been very well received. They provided a very lively and entertaining evening last time and our customers were very excited to see them again.

Spectators attending the show will also get a first glimpse of the extensive renovations to the Imperial Theater.

“I look forward to our first concert back and especially at the newly renovated Imperial Theater. This adds an extra dimension to the concert. I hope people will find the time to come and join us at what promises to be an exceptional concert.

Stoll said he and Zukiewicz looked forward to the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience again.
“This will be our first concert for a live audience in two years, and we’re so excited to meet people and be able to share this with them,” he said.
