Algoma grads to share original songs at special concert

Tianna Legacy, Sean McQuilter to share their musical journeys during Thursday show at The Loft

Two Algoma University music students performing grad concerts this week plan to feature some original works as they share their musical journey with family, friends, fellow students and local music fans.

Tianna Legacy and Sean McQuilter will perform Thursday, April 11 at The Loft starting at 7:30 p.m. (Doors open at 7).

Legacy is a local singer/songwriter who has been playing and writing her own music since she was 10 years old, the university said in a release.

She enjoys participating in community events and dedicates her life journey to sharing her music with others.

Throughout her musical journey with the Algoma University Music program, she has studied different styles of jazz and folk music, while focusing on producing original music, alongside faculty member Frank Deresti.

For her final performance as an Algoma U Music grad, she will be performing a repertoire of original music with band members and longtime friends Will Carnes, Zach Smith, Brandon Ruch, Matthew Schumacher and McQuilter.

Sean McQuilter is an Algoma University music student from Bracebridge. In addition to original works developed during his studies, his recital will consist of a variety of music studied during his time at Algoma, ranging from classical guitar to jazz.

Excited to share his passion for music with the community, McQuilter plans on pursuing a career in performance and music education, and hopes to use music to bring people together throughout his life, the university said.

"He has worked over the year to put together a set list of music which contains meaning for himself as a musician, as well as an opportunity for self expression and connection with his fellow musicians and audience," Algoma U said.

McQuilter will be accompanied by his peers and friends during this performance: Declan Workman on piano, Zach Smith on bass, and Jordan Lambert on drums.

Tickets for the double bill are $15, avaliable online.

The Loft at the Algoma Conservatory is at 75 Huron St.
