CYMC classical concert series begins Thursday

Concerts July 2, July 4 and July 11

  • Jun. 29, 2015 1:00 p.m.

CYMC director John Littlejohn

The Comox Valley Youth Music Centre (CYMC) opens its classical concert series Thursday evening, July 2, with the first of two Faculty Concerts. Featured will be the Schumann Piano Quintet, works by Francaix, Haydn and a few jazz miniatures.

With director John Adidam Littlejohn, nothing is off the table. A rap and hip-hop artist as well as a consummate classical violinist, he brings music in all its variety to students and audience alike.

On Saturday afternoon, July 4, the Junior Strings and Sarah Hagen’s piano students plus select student chamber ensembles will amaze the audience with all they have learned during the first week of camp. At the second Faculty Concert, Thursday July 9, individual faculty members will perform solo works by Sarasate, Ysaye, Chopin and more.

The Grand Finale, Saturday July 11, continues CYMC’s tradition of a major choral work sung by Valley choir members.  This year’s selection is Schubert’s Mass in G accompanied by the faculty. Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 will be the other major work with a few jazz/pop tunes added for fun.

All concerts take place at Mark Isfeld Senior Secondary at 7:30 pm with the exception of the recital on the 4th at 2:30 p.m. (admission by donation). Tickets for all others ($15) are available at The Laughing Oyster Bookstore in Courtenay and The Blue Heron in Comox as well as at the door. No charge for children twelve and under.
