Back by popular demand, cellist Paul Marleyn and pianist Frédéric Lacroix will be performing at the MERA Schoolhouse on Sunday, September 9th at 2:00 PM. This is the first of three Sunday afternoon Blue Jeans Classical Music series, with the Trifecta Trio on October October 14th, and American pianist Mark Valenti on November 11th.
After hearing this duo perform last year, a number of the audience raved about their performance, their mastery of their individual instruments and their casual, informative comments about the music, their instruments and the composers. Some listeners claim it was the best classical performance they had ever heard. High praise, indeed.
As well as teaching their individual instruments at the University of Ottawa music department, both Paul and Frédéric perform solo and with other players extensively in the Ottawa area. This after having brilliant careers on-stage around the world with acclaimed orchestras and fellow musicians.
As always, there will be refreshments available at the Wizards’ Cafe before the performance and at half-time.
Tickets are $25, plus convenience fee, and can be purchased in person at Tickets Please in the Visitors’ Centre of the Matheson House Museum, 11 Gore St E., Perth. Tickets can be ordered for pickup at the door, by telephone (613) 485-6434 or online www.ticketsplease.ca. Tickets at the door are $28, and students 16 and under are free.
