Cellist Rebecca Wenham

Duo puts glamour into classical music

The duo has chosen a programme of Brahms and Beethoven sonatas

Vancouver musicians Rebecca Wenham and Sarah Hagen bring a recital of classical music for cello and piano to Campbell River on Sunday afternoon.

The duo has chosen a programme of Brahms and Beethoven sonatas ideally suited to the intimate acoustics of Trinity Presbyterian Church.

Cellist Wenham has been described as a musical force of nature. She has performed across Canada, the United States, Mexico, Europe, Japan and Australia.

From the Comox Valley, pianist Hagen has been heard in concert halls and on the airwaves to critical acclaim throughout North America and Europe.

As well as hosting eight recital series in BC, Hagen enjoys a busy and varied concert schedule as both a soloist and collaborator.

As First Prize Winner in the 2013 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition, Hagen was awarded the opportunity to perform solo at New York City’s Carnegie Hall in May 2013.

Highlights of Hagen’s upcoming season include recitals featuring Rachmaninoff’s complete Opus 32 Preludes in both Ontario and PEI, a Pro’ject Sound performance in Saint John featuring New Brunswick photographers and the launch of her second album with music of Robert and Clara Schumann.

The concert is at 2 pm. Trinity Presbyterian is located at 145 Simms Road. Individual tickets are $25 (regular), $20(seniors) and $10 (students).
