Marika Bournaki is the subject and star of the documentary film, I Am Not a Rock Star, to be screened at the Club's Musical Exploration program on April 4, 2019. On April 11, she will perform a recital of works that inspired her during her development as a pianist, as well as other works. Marika will also answer questions about the documentary. She performed last year for the Club with cellist Julian Schwarz; they were very warmly received by our audience.

With unparalleled technical, musical and communication skills, Marika Bournaki is at once, a world class performer, outstanding pianist, vivacious young woman… and the freshest face on the classical music scene. Marika’s innovative approach to her art and performance is reflected in her recent collaboration, “Let’s Play”, with cutting-edge and world-renowned multimedia creative shop, Moment Factory. Her role as Ambassador to the Orchestre symphonique de MontrĂ©al’s summer event, “A Cool Classical Journey” was an exceptional opportunity to explore new and exciting ways to share her music with the public. Marika not only brings distinctive interpretations to favourite standards, she also extends her passion for music by commissioning works by younger composers and collaborating with artists from various fields.
