The Benefit Concert Series

ombú productions presents

The theme of this concert series is local, local, local…local musicians, local food and drink, all in support of worthy local causes.

Coming up February 4th is the second concert in this series featuring Seán Dagher and The Paddingtons. Doors open at 7:00 PM with music starting at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $50.00 per person and will qualify as a tax creditable donation. Wine and cheese, plus other delectables will be served.

The Paddingtons have been performing Celtic and Maritime folk music since 1995 for local audiences in pubs and restaurants, concert halls and festival stages. Their repertoire is a combination of  “… festive songs played festively, love songs played romantically, and drinking songs played drunkenly…” – a real treat not to be missed!

Thanks to our sponsors, all proceeds from the evening’s event will go to support Project Genesis, a local community outreach organization founded in 1977. Located in a storefront on Victoria Avenue in Côte-des-Neiges, the organization’s goal is to improve the situation of people living in poverty by helping local residents better understand and defend their rights, and by providing a space where people can work together on issues of local importance.

Come join us Wednesday, February 4th! Tickets are $50 per person.


When: Wednesday, February 4, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Where: Gallery Gora, 279 Sherbrooke St. West, Suite 205

Featuring: Seán Dagher and the Paddingtons

In support of: Project Genesis

Ann Southam’s Fast River #2: Christina Petrowska Quilico Live Piano Performance

December 8, 2014 in Classical

I was driving to a meeting the other day and heard this piece on CBC’s “Shift” with Tom Allen. I had to stop and listen to this amazing performance. This piece was in the back of my mind throughout my entire meeting. By the time arrived home, I immediately googled Ann Southam and found this video. Enjoy.

I stumbled on this video and subsequently forgot what I was looking for. This is simply amazing! I didn’t even know that Norah Jones had a half sister.

Spanish Food and Music

July 4, 2014 in Classical, Jazz

Montreal will soon have a taste of the Catalan cuisine of maestro of avant-garde tapas Carles Abellan. The international outpost of his restaurant Tapas 24 is expected to make its highly anticipated debut this summer. Under the influence of Iberian culture and  the 35th edition of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, I recently stumbled upon a recording of legendary jazz artist Miles Davis interpreting Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez.
