A Message from the Artistic and Executive Director
The Cecilian Chamber series is excited to present new musical adventures for our appreciative and growing audience. The season will open October 3 with international opera star, Canadian baritone, Russell Braun; and in November you can experience the imaginative, energetic and unique ensemble that is the Akropolis Reed Quintet.
In 2020 we join the world in celebrating the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven. In January Rob Kapilow presents “What Makes It Great” as National Public Radio’s popular commentator and presenter goes inside the music and unravels the Appassionato Sonata. Rob will be joined by Regina’s own Katherine Dowling in a performance of this great work. In March the Horszowski Trio presents piano trios in “Beethoven 250 – Still Crazy After All These Years”. The season is rounded out with the Tesla Quartet presenting Beethoven string quartets in “Beethoven, Benefactors and the Russian Connection”. And stay tuned for more exciting Beethoven birthday celebration concerts in fall of 2020.
The Cecilian Chamber Series continues its commitment to the community with the Music For Your Soul program, artists presenting masterclasses as well as Benvenuto and seniors’ concerts. Please check out our website for these and other special events.
Classical music continues to be alive and relevant. The experience of hearing great music presented by World Stage artists in the beautiful setting of Knox-Metropolitan United Church will fill your soul. In the words of Beethoven “It must be!”
I am excited about the new season – I hope you are too!
