Music school

Coffee and a concert

Chamber music is set for April 19.

Beethoven and Cecile Chaminade are on the bill for the next Concerts Cafe Classico.

Their works will be performed by West Coast Chamber Music in the  afternoon of April 19 at the Langley Community Music School Rose Gellert Hall.

The repertoire is vast and hugely varied, dating from the early renaissance through the classical and romantic periods to current day.

Among the selected works to be performed is Beethoven’s Piano Trio in C minor, Op.1, No. 3.

And the musicians will perform the Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 11 by Chaminade, a late Romantic French composer.

“We are very pleased to welcome West Coast Chamber Music,” said LCMS artistic director Elizabeth Bergmann. “The performers are excellent musicians who demonstrate the diversity of this genre with stunning resonance and vibrancy.”

West Coast Chamber Music has long established roots with the music school.

Established in 1993, West Coast Chamber Music performers include LCMS faculty, pianists, and founding directors Alan Crane and Holly Duff. They will be joined by colleagues Angela Cavadas on violin and Rebecca Wenham on cello.

More about the group is at westcoastchambermusic.com.

The Café Classico event starts at 2:30 p.m. with complementary coffee and refreshments, followed by a conversation with West Coast Chamber Music’s four performers, hosted by Bergmann.

Learn more about the history of chamber music, the inspiration behind these selected works, and some anecdotal stories from the performers.

The performance runs from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and $10 for students. Call the box office at 604-534-2848. The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207th St.
