Musical mosaics in Courtenay

Two experienced semi-professional piano artists will entertain us under the banner of Musical Mosaics at St. John the Divine Church, 579 – 5th St. commencing at 2 pm. on Sept. 10.

This performance will feature Eleonore Krullaarts and Peter Walker, at times playing together on one piano or on two pianos, featuring a wonderfully varied programme, surely something for everyone’s tastes.

The musical lineup includes Mozart, Bach, Greig, Poulenc and Gershwin, dates stretching from Mozart (1756-1791) to Gershwin (1898-1937) – both young men with prodigious compositions to their names. Each piece will be introduced by either of the pianists, and the concert will be by donation, followed by light refreshments in the parish hall.

A little about the pianists: Krullaarts was born in the Netherlands, attended University of Utrecht and upon graduation made guest appearances in most of Europe, Great Britain, U.S. and Canada. She has established an enviable reputation, often performing in the Comox Valley. When she finds time from either teaching or performing her other interests include water colour painting, essay writing, attending art exhibits and studying energy medicine.

Walker’s career in Alberta was as a teacher in the humanities (social studies, English and music). For many years he was known in the school system as “the piano man” – go to him and he will play or compose for you. He has been fortunate to receive piano instruction from several notable international concert pianists throughout his career, and was the winner in 1970 of the CBC National Talent Festival and subsequently performed with the CBC Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. He enjoys playing a variety of composers and aims to bring a sense of joy and wonder to the pieces he performs.
