"Few and Mara put a great deal of thought into this wildly eclectic and wonderfully entertaining program. Tremendous energy, totally engaging, what a lovely evening!!" – Virtuosi Concerts, Winnipeg
Guy and Stephanie are a force to be reckoned with. Two artists with technique to burn and an artistic drive that is a joy to experience. The duo is in demand for festivals in Canada and the USA including the Ottawa International Chamber Festival, the Elora Festival, Festival of the Sound and Quad City Arts. They have toured for Prairie Debut in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and the Yukon, performed in Iqaluit for the celebrations of the visit of HRH Queen Elizabeth II and recorded their own Indie CD, Vocalise. Guy and Stephanie are sessional lecturers at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.
Guy has been a keynote speaker for brain injury associations in Canada and the USA. The presentations concern his two brain surgeries for Cavernous Hemangioma, the resulting memory loss and complications. Guy has been invited to speak on this topic for CBC TV and Radio (Peter Gzowski, Shelagh Rogers, This is my Music), Global TV affiliates, CTV, NPR, as well as symposia such as Bach and the Brain, Surgery Grand Rounds and OMEA. His speech, “Mokuso”, features meditations for pain and stage fright. He is also featured regularly in the international press. Mark Fewer will interview Guy about his life and extraordinary return to the concert stage after brain surgery.
