Music: Classical Theatre:
Saturday December 9,at the Mary Winspear Centre, Sidney BC, Maestro Stickman invites you
to The Comedy of Music. If you struggle to see the point of a symphony orchestra, or of Mozart,
this show is for you. But no matter if your preference is for dance, for singing, for music, or just
plain old jokes about violins and politicians, Maestro Stickman has it all!

The Comedy of Music, conducted by the hilarious character Maestro Oscar Stickman (performed
by Konstantin Bozhinov), presents a wonderful reassessment of the arts and their role in
contemporary society through clowning, satire and improvisation. Maestro Stickman accomplishes
this with his brilliant use of a multitude of musical instruments and an assortment of songs and
dances, wrapped in layers of comical stories and anecdotes.
Maestro Stickman’s seemingly endless talent is spread in all artistic directions as he satirically
demonstrates that modern visual art is no more difficult to master than an exquisite Greek folk
dance. Maestro reveals his passionate side with a tender Irish ballad and an Argentinian tango, and
in one of the more practical portions, Sir Stickman comically demonstrates what to do while on hold
and which 1-800 line to call if you need a backup orchestra.

Konstantin Ruslanov Bozhinov is a versatile musician, scholar, and entertainer. He specializes in
improvisation, composition, and character comedy and enjoys a busy concert schedule as soloist,
collaborator, and educator. Individuality and originality through improvisation and composition are at
the core of Konstantin's philosophy and approach to music and theatre. Bozhinov is presently a PhD
candidate in historical musicology (University of Victoria).
