Langley music school throws open its doors to the community

LCMS welcomes a pianist and a children’s singer for weekend events.

An open house and free concert, followed by a Café Classico event will showcase musicians at the Langley Community Music School this weekend.

Children’s entertainer Will Stroet will perform at 12:15 p.m. in the Rose Gellert Hall.

Stroet is the award-winning star of Will’s Jams on Kids’ CBC.

“Will is the kind of performer that will… take up the mantle of past iconic children’s performers like Raffi, Fred Penner, and Sharon, Lois and Bram,” said Casey Prescott of the Banff Centre. “His music and performance style has weight and character.”

The open house also includes a Suzuki Information Session and a free mini-Orff class for three- to five-year-olds, both at 1 p.m.

The open house allows visitors to learn about programs, meet teachers, and explore a vareity of musical instruments.

“Beyond being a music school for all ages and levels, the school is also an important cultural resource for the community, featuring many world-renowned concert performers throughout the year,” said LCMS principal Susan Magnusson.

On Sunday, the school welcomes one of its own alumni, Dr. Susan Tang, who will perform the works of Chopin, Ives, and Ligeti at a Café Classico afternoon concert.

The event starts at 2:30 p.m. with a pre-concert coffee and conversation with Tang, hosted by LCMS artistic director Elizabeth Bergmann. The piano concert will take place from 3:30-4:30 p.m.

Tang is an assistant professor of piano at the Northeastern Illinois University. She has toured throughout Canada, Europe, and Asia.

“She is a stunning pianist, and we are proud to have been part of nurturing her success,” said Magnusson.

Tickets for the concert are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students. Call the box office at 604-534-2848 for tickets. The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207th St.
