27th Season of the Vetta Chamber Music and Recital Society
Dear Vetta Friends,
Did you know that the name “Vetta” means peak in Italian? In its twenty six years the Vetta series has come to be synonymous with the highest standards of performance. As Artistic Director, I believe in inviting artists who may not usually play together, creating a magic atmosphere of creativity, collaboration, and a sharing of ideas. This year we have
presently violist in the Fine Arts String Quartet, returns to Vancouver to play with his former colleagues including
Linda Lee Thomas
Trio Accord joins
Sara Davis Buechner
and me in February, and in March we feature
the hot new harp and cello duo
in collaboration with the Vetta String Quartet. For our May finale, we have invited
from the University of Victoria to play piano trios with Eugene and Joan. I am also very excited that we are able to offer a second concert series this season, a one hour Thursday afternoon concert with repertoire selected from the Friday evening performance, and tea and cookies after the show!
For those of you new to the Vetta experience, listen to the words of some of our audience members: Rita Radzikowski wrote in with her subscription renewal: “Last year was absolutely stunning and could go anywhere in the world.” Shirley Saloman, subscriber for three years, writes about the last season’s Tango concert: “Yesterday evening was one of the highlights of this year....your group put on such an exhuberant, exciting performance and thrilled the audience members who were sitting on the edges of their seats/pews! It was another example of what I anticipate when I come to a Vetta performance: you always seem to bring freshness to pieces, both known and unknown to me.” Come join us as we share with you some of our favourite chamber music!
