Quintet collaborates for afternoon of classical music

In its continuing series of Sunday Afternoon Concerts, St. John the Divine presents a stellar lineup of local professionals to entertain at A Lighthearted Afternoon of Classical Music on March 6 at 2 p.m., St. John’s Anglican Church, 579 – 5th St. in Courtenay.

The five performers are well known in the area through teaching, accompanying and solo performances.

The lineup consists of Lynn Robinson on piano, well known as a former music teacher and more recently accompanying choirs and singing groups, and even spreading some of her talent to Summerland.

Pianist Dagmar Kilian is a performance graduate via UVic and the Netherlands, plays regularly for Rainbow Theatre, and occasionally for Co-Val and CYMC. In addition, she is choir director and organist at St. John’s Church.

Helena Jung on cello needs scant introduction to the Valley music scene, playing regularly in concert  halls locally and abroad. She is a member of  the CV Piano Society and Teachers Music Association, plays with the Victoria Symphony and is leader of V.I. Cello Ensemble, in addition to her own recital series Cellobration since 2007.

Eve Mark is a dramatic soprano, and both a voice and piano teacher.  She has much musical experience in churches with choirs, and collaborations with Tom Tully and Lynn Robinson covering classical, art songs and opera arias.  Kilian has been Mark’s accompanist for the past nine years.

Tully is a well known baritone soloist and has sung with Bel Canto and Island Voices Chamber Choir, North Island Choral Society and CYMC summer choir, keeping him much in demand and expanding his repertoire yearly.

The proposed musical program is eclectic, light-hearted, intricate, challenging, and will give great pleasure to our listening audience.

Featured music will include works from Vivaldi, Mozart, Puccini, Schubert, Debussy and others. Admission is by donation.
