This session of the Twilight Jazz Series features SOPHIA PERLMAN and ADREAN FARRUGIA, with an opening performance by DOMINIQUE LALAMA


Sophia Perlman is singer, musician, songwriter, arts facilitator, choral conductor, music director and educator. She is known primarily for her work as a jazz, blues and improvising musician. She has toured Canada as a bandleader, as co-leader of the band PerlHaze, and can be heard on numerous recordings as both a collaborator and featured guest.
When not performing, she finds a wide range of work rooted in her belief that music belongs to everyone, and that anyone can sing.



Adrean Farrugia began playing piano at the age of 12. By age 16 he decided that he would dedicate his life to music. Since then he has become recognized as one of Canada’s finest pianists and composers, having shared the music he loves globally with audiences across Canada, the United States, London UK, Paris, Tokyo, TelAviv, Australia, Poland and The Netherlands with artists such as Ernie Watts, Sheila Jordan, Brad Goode, Joel Frahm, Ernesto Cervini, Matt Dusk and The Worst Pop Band Ever.

Adrean Serves on the faculties of Mohawk College and Humber College and has conducted masterclasses and workshops for students at the University of Colorado at Boulder, the Sydney Conservatorium, the Polish Jazz Society Summer Workshop, and the University of Toronto. Adrean has played on more than 40 albums to date garnering 4 Juno award nominations, 1 Juno award and 1 Grammy shortlist recognition.

Adrean believes that music has the power to both heal and inspire both the performer and the listener, as well as revealing a higher sense of being which exists in all people, and it is this belief that drives his continued journey and commitment to musical growth.

Adrean is endorsed by Shigeru Kawai Pianos.
