Workshop Instructor

Charles Burke is active in both art and music.  As a professional clarinetist he studied with John Fetherston, Ezra Schabas, Robert Riseling, Yona Ettlinger, and finally with Avrahm Galper, who was for many years the Principal Clarinetist of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.  Mr. Burke has an A.R.C.T. Diploma, and his music development has involved work on a Bachelor of Music Degree from the University of Toronto and a Master’s degree from the University of Western Ontario, where he was also the conductor of the University of Western Ontario Concert Band.

He has played in numerous chamber music concerts, has performed in orchestras both in Thunder Bay and in Peterborough, where as Principal Clarinetist he was also on occasion featured as soloist with the orchestra.  Currently he performs with the Durham Chamber Orchestra.

In art, he works in a variety of media and values the aesthetic and technical bonds between art and music.  In addition to studying works in Canada and the United States, he has travelled as far abroad as Israel, France, Austria, Germany and Italy.  He did classical art studies with Pauline Bradshaw –a student of John Angel who started the School of Realist Art in Toronto. He has studied Impressionism with Lois Griffel and John Kilroy at the Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Mr. Burke has participated in group exhibitions where he has won awards for Best Oil and Best in Show. He has done solo, two- and three-person exhibitions. His works are included in corporate collections.   He is represented by the following galleries:

Workshop Description

At this workshop you will

  • Get a better understanding of two artistic partners-music and visual arts - as you learn how they complement each other.
  • Develop your own knowledge of both these arts and improve your own painting skills in an interactive and supportive environment.
  • Learn about such aspects as colour harmony, drawing, design, composition, materials and tools manipulation, as well as relevant historical and marketing knowledge.

Although the workshop relates specifically to the structures and progressions of J.S.Bach, methodology will be employed, so that no theoretical or practical music skills will be needed.
