Our Spring Studio Recital was June 2nd at 7pm Wood Hall, Victoria Conservatory of Music
The concert featured students from my VCM piano studio.
And extra congratulations to those students of mine who received VCM Scholarships. (Scholarships are open to any VCM student, but are usually granted to those who’ve worked hard volunteering, attended masterclasses or Piano Academy, and represented the musical community around Victoria.) This year’s recipients:
Kajta Verkerk — David Foster Scholarship
May Basbaum — Millicent Lavoy Piano Scholarship
Darren Shui — Millicent Lavoy Piano Scholarship
Anna Ksenhuk — Brian Estall Memorial Scholarship
Tamara Ksenhuk — Brian Estall Memorial Scholarship
Pianist Eve Egoyan will be in Victoria giving an Open Space concert at the Alix Goolden Performance hall January 29th 8:00. Eve specializes in new works, and will be playing Ann Southam’s Simple lines of Enquiry. (Check the music out here) Tickets 20/15
Eve will Also be giving a masterclass to students of the Victoria Conservatory of Music’s Collegium on Thursday January 26th in Wood Hall. After hearing her on the cbc radio’s Studio Q I’m looking forward to seeing her advise and perform.
Monday May 30th, 7:00-8:00, Wood Hall in the Victoria Conservatory of Music. 30 awesome performers from the age of 3.5 through 17 have been working hard all year and get to show it. I’m excited, students, as I’m sure you are too! Admission is free, but come early for a seat and to find parking (street parking only!)
With a bit (a tiny, tiny bit) more time this year (taking less classes) I’ve been hoping to put on a concert either late this spring or early next fall. Here’s one of the pieces on the list: Rachmaninoff’s Suite #1, Fantasy for Two Pianos, played by Martha Agerich & Dario Ntaca.
With a lot of students in the festival and exams this year I’ve decided to host a few Sunday mini-recitals. These give students the oppertunity to try out their pieces in performance and deadlines to work towards. The room is small, so performances spots are limited. If you’re interested ask me about signing you up!
February 6th, Sunday, 2:00-3:00 in room 302, Victoria Conservatory of Music
