Hockley will lead the quartet that will focus on Shaw’s greatest hits album.

Hockley is a versatile clarinest performing classical repertoire to experimental contemporary music, jazz and free improvisation. He has performed with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Vancouver Island Symphony, Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra and has appeared as a soloist with the Victoria Symphony and the Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra.
