Piano pair offer Sunday matinee

Concert at St. John The Divine Church, May 29 at 2 p.m.

Two outstanding pianists are reunited  and playing together at Piano is our Forte, part of the Sunday afternoon concert series sponsored by St. John the Divine church.

Dagmar Kilian and Frederic Voorn both studied at the Conservatory of Music in the Dutch city of Utrecht, and come to Courtenay to show off their talents.

Kilian and Voorn’s program covers four centuries of musical compositions for solo and duets, so everyone should find something by a favourite composer, with the possibility of hearing a piece unfamiliar but totally enjoyable.

Composers chosen feature J. S. Bach, Franz Schubert,  Joseph Haydn, Claude Debussy and Frederic Chopin, and possibly Voorn himself.

Admission is by donation with refreshments served in the hall afterwards.

The concert is at St. John The Divine Church, 5th Street & Harmston, Courtenay, on May 29 at 2 p.m.
