Musicians perform at house concerts

This week Masterworks Ensemble, a quartet of the valley’s finest classical musicians, will perform four house concerts along Okanagan Lake

This week Masterworks Ensemble, a quartet of the valley’s finest classical musicians, will perform four house concerts along Okanagan Lake. Local residents are opening their homes to the public, inviting them to sip wine from local wineries, view artwork by a variety of Okanagan artists and listen to the sounds of summer.

Music for the evening concerts will feature light operatic arias, lush string arrangements, romantic Spanish guitar and favourites from the music of Gershwin.

This is an exciting chance to hear highly accomplished musicians play in an intimate setting: Tracy Fehr, a lyric coloratura soprano, has held numerous recitals and concerts across Canada, Central America, North Africa and in the United Kingdom. Elizabeth Lupton, violin and baroque violin, is a member of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, and frequently plays with the Kamloops Symphony and Fiddle Frazzle. Dennis Nordlund, piano, performs throughout the Okanagan as a soloist, as accompanist for vocalists, choirs, instrumentalists and theatrical productions, and is also a member of a jazz trio.

Masterworks Ensemble is joined by guest artist Simon Cliff, a classical guitarist from London, England currently touring in B.C.

The house concerts will be held at Michael and Sophia Zang’s home in Summerland on July 26, at the Westby home in Trout Creek, July 27, the Nordlunds’ home in Penticton, July 28 and at Terry Isaac’s studio on the Naramata Bench, July 29.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. To purchase, phone 250-494-1042 or 250-493-5221. E-mail tlfehr@shaw.ca.

All concerts begin at 7 p.m.
