Wanting to explore each other's musical worlds, Erin Propp and Yuri Hooker became fast friends and schemed several ways to unite their respective crafts. Yuri's cello wizardry and Erin's singular voice have blended their symphonic and jazz backgrounds to create a new concert of inspired repertoire.
There is nuance in the everyday; in its layers of love, joy, and hurt, and in its emotional currents ever present. Erin reaches into the everyday and blurs the edges, creating works that are at once deeply personal and achingly relatable. These are songs that take it all in, that read between the lines, that hear the subtext, that feel it, that say it out loud.
Longtime principal cellist of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, Yuri Hooker is well-known for his passionate and soulful interpretations of a wide range of repertoire. His frequent solo appearances have met with wide acclaim.
