Strathcona Symphony Orchestra presents Vancouver’s Vetta Chamber Music to Comox Valley audiences

August 17 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$15 – $30

After the resounding success of violin soloist, Gregory Lewis, and his performance of Tchaikovsky’s “Violin Concerto in D Major”, the Strathcona Symphony Orchestra (SSO) is pleased to continue with the theme of excellence by presenting Vancouver-based Vetta Chamber Music on Saturday, Aug. 17, 3 p.m., at the air-conditioned Comox United Church. Concertgoers will also have an opportunity to meet with the musicians over light refreshments.

“Vetta”, meaning “peak” in Italian, is well known to B.C. chamber music audiences, and for this concert, Joan Blackman (violin), Jane Hayes (piano) and Zoltan Rozsnyai (cello) will perform a piano trio program of Arno Babajanian’s “Piano Trio in F sharp minor” and Johannes Brahms’ “Piano Trio No. 1 in B major Opus 8”. All three artists have extensive professional musical backgrounds ranging from performances with the Vancouver Symphony, Victoria Symphony, Toronto Symphony, and CBC Radio Symphony to recording contracts with EMI, Fanfare, and CBC-Musica Viva.

The trio will begin the program with Arno Babajanian’s “Piano Trio in F sharp minor”. This composer, although well-known in Europe, is rarely heard in North America. Following this piece, the Vetta musicians will perform Brahms’ “Piano Trio in B major” which is one of the most tender and beautiful chamber music pieces and the mood fits perfectly with a lazy summer day.

Tickets for Vetta’s captivating performances of Brahms and Babajanian can be purchased at Ticket prices are $30 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under. Seating is limited at the Comox United Church, but there may be tickets available (cash only) at the door.
