    French on Friday are a group of musicians with different backgrounds, united by their love of quality pop music. Looking back on and up to the great piano-playing songwriters of the past decades, Elisabeth Kaplan (lyrics) and Nikolaus Newerkla (music) strive to create songs with strong melodies and staying power, songs that capture the imagination, songs that are somehow familiar yet surprising. And Angelika Huemer (viol, recorders), Philipp Comploi (basse de violon) and Jakob Sigl (drums) round off the unmistakeable, almost orchestral sound of French On Friday.

  • An Intimate Evening with Gino Vannelli

    in Music

    Born in Montreal, Quebec, Gino Vannelli is one of three sons. As a child, Gino's greatest passion was music, and he began playing percussion at an early age. By the age of 15, Gino began writing songs. Just out of high school, he signed his first recording contract with RCA and went on to study music at McGill University.
    This quote summarizes the man in a nutshell; One Thursday afternoon at Place Des Arts, I remember hearing the Montreal Symphony playing “Daphne and Chloe” by Maurice Ravel. I walked away shaking my head, muttering to myself, ‘What was that!? I was so deeply moved—bewildered by the sounds I had just heard. It was the moment I discovered to what heights music could draw a man’s soul.”
    Gino Vannelli stirs the soul with his voice, his music, and most importantly, his life philosophy and his sincere and gentle demeanour.
    Join us this evening as we learn more about the man behind the music, share valuable life lessons, and of course, enjoy great musical performances. This episode will be available On Demand for you to listen to at your leisure if you are unable to join us live.

  • "The Perversion of GOSPEL MUSIC!"

    in Music

    The tradition of gospel music has been tarnished.
    The modern equivalent of the ancient path has beem bastardized with commercialism, lewdness and blatant homosexuality among church leaders, music ministers and the paying public.
    These wolves ain't trying to hide no more!
    There are just as many scandals and "drama" associated with gospel than R&B and Hip-Hop!
    Reality TV Shows, Preachers of LA, Detroit, etc. Mary, Mary and othe have polluted the sanctuary.
    This morning on P2T we are going to perform surgery on the Body of Christ!
