Retirement Residences

Prime Rib Buffet EntertainmentThe Arcadian Duo enjoys repeat performances at every retirement residence they visit – and so do the residents!

With a repertoire that spans 800 years and draws from both international folk traditions and classical masterpieces they can take an audience on trip around the world and back in time. There are often comments and questions after the performance regarding the varied recorders, and it’s always a pleasant surprise to learn which residents once played the violin.

They spontaneously sing along to a familiar tunes such as the Italian favourite Santa Lucia and are flooded with heart-warming memories of family life when they hear the recorder play Early One Morning (the theme from the CBC children’s program The Friendly Giant).  In the end, they simply enjoy seeing and hearing two good friends who are highly skilled making music together.
