THUNDER BAY, ON ------ September 13, 2011 -- Last season Heather Morrison, Derek Oger, and Peter Shackelton presented the best attended concert of Consortium’s robust season. So it is not unexpected that Consortium would present a sequel, “romantic” themed concert this season.
Indeed that is the case with Heather Morrison returning along with Evegueni Tchougounov at the piano. They will be joined by violinist Jennifer Bryan and cellist Anthony Bacon.
The programme will present piano music for four hands by Mozart and Brahms, including a Hungarian Dance. Cello lovers will be delighted to hear the Brahms cellos sonata in E- by Brahms. The romantic music continues when Jenifer Bryan joins the ensemble for Schubert’s piano trio Opus 99 for violin, piano and cello.
The concert is being billed as “The Romantic Chamber Music Salon”: Music from Vienna. Admission most Consortium Concerts is by suggested donations of $10 (students & seniors) and $15.00 for adults. The Concert will be Saturday September 24th beginning at 8:00 pm at St. Paul’s United Church, 349 Waverley Street Thunder Bay.
The nights are growing longer and the evenings a little cooler, it’s time to start attending concerts once again. We are fortunate that in our city we can see top rated talent for such a modest admission price. Consortium can make this happen because of generous donations made by its patrons.
Attend this concert and if you are inclined to be a supporter of fine music in our city consider donating to the Consortium. A tax receipt can often be had right at the door! These are challenging times for Arts groups and donors money helps enrich the cultural lives of the entire city.
