CARRASCO + KRAUSE ENSEMBLE: MIGRANT STORIES With Special Guests Sunday, January 28 at 8 pm
What happens when you mix two jazz players with a heritage spanning from Chile to Russia? You get the magic and story of Jaime Carrasco and Jesse Kraus’ ensemble. Join us for an evening of Chilean and Mennonite migrant stories that pays musical homage to Carrasco and Kraus’ roots for updated standards from the band leaders’ cultural traditions with a distinctly jazz feel.
"The Park Theatre has made all the right moves, blood, sweat, tears and good old fashioned hard work. They work hard for their community and were lucky to have them."
“If there is one venue that keeps surprising & impressing me more in Winnipeg, it’s the Park Theatre. It’s a room that makes every band the centre of attention and focus – this city is lucky to have such a great venue in our world renowned music scene."
Grant PaleyAgent / Paquin Artist Agency
"The Park Theatre has become one of the most important venues in Winnipeg for developing artists. The size and versatility of the space paired with great sound and venue support makes it a go-to venue for many different types of shows – intimate singer-songwriter performances, rock n’ roll/dance acts, and everything in between."
Chris Frayer Artistic Director / Winnipeg Folk Festival
"The Park Theatre has consistently been one of my favourite venues to play, period. The history and unique space are what caught my eye. Great lights, amazing sound, and a fantastic staff make every experience a memorable one. This is a venue that should be on any artist's bucket list."
JP HoeSinger / Songwriter
"The Park Theatre is pretty much everything I look for in a venue. Great sound and sightlines, a warm inviting atmosphere, and staff who genuinely care not only about the shows that they put on, but more importantly about the people who attend them. The Park makes Winnipeg a better place to be!"
