Leading Canadian concert pianist Glen Montgomery returns to the Comox Valley this Saturday to open the Comox Valley Piano Society season.

Montgomery resides in Lethbridge, Alta., where he is on faculty at the University of Lethbridge. He has been coming to the Valley for 30 years, presenting concerts and offering master classes and private lessons to local piano students.

This year, he will bring a colleague, Blaine Hendsbee, a lyric tenor. Dr. Hendsbee is heard regularly in opera, oratorio and art song recitals throughout Canada and the United States.

All concerts sponsored by the Comox Valley Piano Society are held at the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College, where the society houses its Yamaha concert grand piano. Tickets are available at Blue Heron Books, Laughing Oyster Bookstore and Videos ‘N More.

Further information about the concerts and membership in the Piano Society is available by visiting www.comoxvalleypianosociety.com or calling 250-339-7782. See the website for information about a discounted series ticket.

The Comox Valley Piano Society was formed in 1990 to provide a quality instrument on which local students could take examinations, participate in recitals and workshops.

The society administers the Marie Josephine Richard Scholarships, senior Piano Music Awards and Shirley Fletcher Book Awards. Over the years, the society has continued to contribute to the cultural scene by sponsoring professional concerts.
