Denis Chang Manouche Quartet to perform in Prince Rupert

The Denis Chang Manouche Quartet will be performing at the Lester Centre of the Arts on Sunday, April 15 at 3 p.m.

During the afternoon of Sunday, April 15, the Prince Rupert Concert Society will be presenting the Denis Chang Manouche Quartet at the Lester Centre of the Arts.

The Denis Chang Manouche Quartet consists of French-Canadian front man Denis Chang and his band consisting of Ben Henriques on saxophone/clarinet, Eric Lemay on rhythm guitar and Paul Van Dyk on bass.

Chang’s musical styling has been greatly influenced by pioneering virtuoso jazz guitarist and composure Django Reinhardt, as well as having influences such as Bach, Chopin, George Benson and Michael Jackson.

This will be the quartet’s first time performing in Prince Rupert, as part of their “On the Road with Django Reinhardt” concert tour. The show is said to have a lot of variety to it, being multilayered with guitar, while still maintaining the ‘swing manouche’ as it’s red thread.

As well as being a touring musician, Chang also lives off of his musical talents by teaching, attracting private students from as far away as the UK, California, Vermont and even South America.

Tickets can be purchased at the Lester Centre Box Office, or at Cook’s Jewelers. Anyone wishing to attend the Denis Change Manouche Quartet at the Lester Centre is encouraged to purchase tickets in advance, as there will be an extra $2 surcharge for people purchasing tickets at the door. The concert will begin at 3 p.m. on April 15.
