Concert conjures continental cafe

Parksville trio sings “sophisticated pop” in French and English at St. Anne & St. Edmund Church Nov. 28

St. Anne & St. Edmund Anglican Church will undergo a transformation next Friday. No, they’re not starting more renos. Parksville’s Small Talk Trio is coming to perform.

“We’re really pulling out all the stops,” said piano player Dave Klinger.

For their concert, titled La musique continental, singer Denise Charron said the trio will be bringing in screens and lighting to make the space feel as “continental cafe” as possible.

Their music will also help set the scene. La musique continental will include a selection of French-language songs.

“It’s different. You don’t often get to sing a lot of French tunes,” said Denise Charron, who is originally from Montreal. The set list has pop, latin, jazz and bossa nova songs.

The Trio, which also includes Charron’s husband John on guitar, started playing together three years ago. Although they came from different musical backgrounds — Klinger was a music teacher and the Charrons played in a rock band — the three found they hit a groove. “We are all quite eclectic,” said Klinger.

Small Talk is excited to play at St. Anne & St. Edmund. “Thing about that space, as any performer will tell you, is the acoustics,” Klinger said.

La musique continental will be on Friday Nov. 28, with doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starting soon after. Tickets are $15, which also includes refreshments.

Tickets can be purchased at the door, from Klinger at 250-947-9755 or from the Charrons at 250-752-3632.
