B.C.’s own West Coast Chamber Music is set to perform the works of Beethoven and Cecile Chaminade at Langley Community Music School’s (LCMS) Concerts Café Classico event at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, April 19.
Chamber music offers a repertoire that is vast and hugely varied, dating from the early Renaissance through the classical and Romantic periods to current day.
West Coast Chamber Music presents two works from the piano trio (piano, violin, cello) repertoire. With a mandate to present and champion the works of women composers, the group will also perform the work of late Romantic period French composer, Cecile Chaminade.
Established in 1993, West Coast Chamber Music performers include LCMS faculty, pianists, and founding directors Alan Crane and Holly Duff.
They will be joined by colleagues Angela Cavadas on violin and Rebecca Wenham on cello.
“We are very pleased to welcome West Coast Chamber Music,” said LCMS artistic director Elizabeth Bergmann.
“The performers are excellent musicians who demonstrate the diversity of this genre with stunning resonance and vibrancy.”
The Café Classico event starts at 2:30 p.m. with complimentary coffee and refreshments, followed by a conversation with West Coast Chamber Music’s four performers, hosted by Bergmann.
Learn more about the history of chamber music, the inspiration behind these selected works, and some anecdotal stories from the performers. The performance will run from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
