Langley Community Music School’s annual faculty benefit concert takes place Saturday, Oct. 29 at 7:30 p.m. Proceeds from the concert, titled “Oh Sera Misterioso” (Oh Mysterious Evening), will help maintain a high standard of music education through the purchase of instruments, program support, and the maintenance of a comfortable learning environment for students.
“We are very fortunate to have so many performing artists on faculty that are willing to generously donate their performances to benefit the students,” says Susan Magnusson, LCMS’ principal.
“The theme “Oh Sera Misterioso”, or oh mysterious evening, should hint at the inspiration behind this year’s event.”
The evening promises to be an eclectic mix of performances and performers, including the Bergmann Piano Duo; renowned cellists Joel Stobbe and Ian Hampton; violinists Yuri Zaidenberg and Luiza Nelepcu; pianists Bernard Duerkson, Carl Montgomery, and Leslie Janos; and fiddler extraordinaire Andrea Taylor with guitarist Ray Pullen.
“Many of these faculty performers have been featured in Concerts Café Classico and Rose Gellert Hall series performances,” adds Magnusson.
Tickets are available at the Langley Community Music School box office at 604-534-2848 for $22 adults, $20 seniors, and $16 students. A family pass is also available for $65 (two adults and their children). The Rose Gellert Hall is located at 4899 207 St.
