Cabaret style in our Lobby
A Port Theatre Spotlight Series Co-Presentation with Nanaimo International Jazz Festival
A classically trained pianist and jazz saxophonist, Nico can be heard playing everything from country to Coltrane, and everywhere from Chemainus to Stratford. A professional studio musician, composer, arranger and music director; Nico has had the privilege of performing across Canada, the western United States, Central America and Eastern Africa in a myriad of musical settings including funk bands, jazz trios, cabaret acts, chamber ensembles, and as a soloist.
Recently working with the Vancouver Island Symphony, Nico arranged and composed for the hit show “My Symphony” by Rick Scott, and the critically acclaimed “Tonight, Piaf!” by Joelle Rabu. Nico is in constant demand as an arranger and musical director across Canada when not playing jazz with his own trio.
Enjoy a drink in our casual setting and stay after to meet the musicians.
