At age 85, improvisational pianist Edna Knock still concertizes regularly and is much in demand as an entertainer. A Professor Emeritus of Brandon University’s acclaimed School of Music, Knock loves the classics, but has developed a loyal following thanks to her jazz stylings and her boogie woogie flair. She’s taught music and performed all over the world, has recorded four CDs and has written and published a book. A second tome is in the works, and more concerts are booked for the 2013-2014 season. Artistry trumps age in this intimate portrait of a still-flourishing talent.
