Omer Klein & Haggai Cohen-Milo

A late mistake occurred when we were compiling our music listings for the April 3-16 issue of Prairie Dog. A concert by Klein, an acclaimed Israeli-born jazz pianist who currently lives in Germany, and his bassist Cohen-Milo, ended up being listed as happening on Sunday April 11.

Today is April 11, of course. So which is it? Is the concert happening tonight, or on Sunday? Well, it’s happening on Sunday. All the other particulars in the listing are correct. It’s being co-presented by the Regina Jazz Society, Regina & District Jewish Association and the Beth Jacob Synagogue. The concert will be at the synagogue (4715 McTavish St.) on Sunday at 8 p.m., and tickets are $15 advance and $20 at the door.

To give you a sense of what to expect here’s video from 2011 of Klein and Cohen-Milo, along with drummer Ziv Ravitz, performing a tune by Klein called “Fear of Heights”:

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
