Michael Bridge (accordions & piano) and Kornel Wolak (clarinet & piano) are an internationally-acclaimed music & comedy duo, integrating traditional acoustic instruments with 21st century digital technology. They perform their own uniquely reimagined repertoire of classical, world and jazz fusion. With deft virtuosity and endless wit, Bridge & Wolak have been called the “Victor Borges of the 21st Century.” Fun-loving gentlemen (with seven degrees in music), they are both globe-trotting musicians and educators. They were nominated for the BC Touring Artist of the Year award in 2019.

 “Watch and be amazed!” - CBC

“Remarkable subtlety in Bridge’s production of sound. [...] Control and a smooth expressivity are what make Wolak shine.” - Toronto Star

”Fresh, exciting and fun, dispelling any of the old preconceptions about classical music…” - Barrie Examiner
