Whimzik wows with eclectic music, performance art combo

Written by 

art whimzikWhimzik will be having a DVD release performance at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva.

The group includes Glenn Kastrinos, a multi- instrumentalist who plays flutes, whistles, guitar and octave mandolin in the Celtic and Scandinavian tradition, and Kjelsty Hanson who plays bodhran and is a mask performance artist.

Whimzik has been performing for 10 years in North America, New Zealand and Sweden. They bring creative exuberance to their performance and hope to awaken a sense of wonderment in the audience.

To start off the show, a group of children ranging in ages from 7 to 11, that have taken a mask making and performance workshop with Hanson, will perform. The children have named their group “That’s a good one!” 

The DVD was produced and directed on Western Carolina University’s campus. It includes collaborations with Arledge Armenaki, Bruce Frazier and students from the stage and screen department and music school.  

The event is free and open to the public.

    Standing in the Belhurst Castle, a Great Gatsby-esque property situated on Seneca Lake in Geneva, N.Y., I realized it had been around a decade since my childhood friends and I had been in the same room together. And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
