JAN AND JON - VIOLINSTS - IN CONCERT FOR THE VWMS ON SEPTEMBER 26th 2018

 
 

Friends since childhood, Canadian born violinists, Jonathan Chan and Jan Bislin, formed the duo

formerly known as Momento in the beginning of 2013. Having studied with the same professor

during their teenage years, Jonathan and Jan garnered countless classical music awards and

accolades throughout their young lives. They have since gone on to receive their Masters in

Performance from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama while performing all over Europe and

North America.

While performing live, they are also involved in the YouTube community with the hopes and

ambitions of delivering their music and creativity to the world. As such, the duo often branches

out beyond classical music and explores the world of popular classics, rock, jazz, hip hop, pop

and electronic music while experimenting with their own sounds.

Having been invited to play at the wedding of Geri Halliwell and Christian Horner, the group can

often be found performing in corporate events, weddings, bars, lounges and any place where

their music can be shared. Since 2017, Jan and Jon have enjoyed performing across America for

NACA College conventions, shows and private events. Jamming frequently at Sofar Sounds

London gigs, they have also performed for Bloomberg’s 2015 Summer Party, the Old Vic

Theatre’s inaugural Variety Night show and the Summer Gala, working with Ronnie Scotts

musicians and sharing the stage with Tim Minchin, Dynamo, Gary Barlow, Il Volo and other

prominent artists.

Jan and Jon draw their musical influences from limitless number of styles, often fusing their deep

classical roots with present day sounds. They have evolved into a multi-instrumental group,

incorporating electronic elements and supporting instruments to bolster their music and live

show. Going from competing against each other in numerous competitions to joining forces,

Jonathan and Jan have formed to create a unique sound dedicated to pushing the boundaries of

the violin while pulling people into their musical trip.
