A Message from the Artistic and Executive Director

For the 7th season the Cecilian Chamber Series is excited to present 5 outstanding  “World Stage ”chamber music performances.
The season begins with the exciting Montrose Trio featuring pianist Jon Kimura Parker and former Tokyo String Quartet members Martin Beaver and Clive Greensmith.  All are soloists in their own right and together form an outstanding new trio.
The second concert of the season features the superb foursome of Canadian women that are Cecilia String Quartet.  Winners of Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2010 this is an ensemble that has been on our wish list since the series began 7 years ago.  It is extra special to be able to present them with Canadian clarinetist extraordinaire James Campbell.
Charismatic Canadian pianist Philip Chiu, the first recipient of the Prix Goyer Canada’s largest prize for an emerging artist in classical music, will present an exciting program that includes Canadian music in honor of Canada Music Week.
Then we welcome home Regina born violinist Erika Raum who with her  lively temperament and energetic individuality will be joined by Lydia Wong at the piano.
The season ends with the electrifying baroque ensemble from the UK – Red Priest.  This unorthodox quartet of virtuoso musicians make it a mission to make classical music a visual as well as an aural experience.
We are continuing to expand our community connections by presenting, for the first time, special sensory sensitive concerts to add to educational opportunities and the “Music For Your Soul” program.
Come join us in 2017-18 for an exceptional Cecilian Experience!
Sincerely,
LoreSignature1
