Due to illness, violinist David Gillham must postpone his June 7th Musicfest recital
While disappointing, there is nothing that can be done except cancel or postpone, and I hope most of you will want another chance to hear David play at the GYMC. So for the first time, Guelph Musicfest will postpone a concert to (tentatively) sometime in November. As soon as a date can be confirmed, it will be announced.
Tickets purchased for this Friday will be honoured at the "rain" date performance, but if you would like a refund, just let me know (just reply to this email). I do hope you can come in November.
You may also exchange your ticket for one of the remaining 2 concerts below:
1)Musicfest will continue on June 14
as Guelph-born artists return to join Ken Gee in the popular FESTIVAL TRIO-violinist Sadie Fields (Brussels, Belgium) and cellist Paul Pulford (New Brunswick).
The annual appearance of the Festival Trio is always a Musicfest audience favourite. Sadie lives in Brussells, but loves the opportunity to visit her home-town Guelph and perform in the Festival Trio. Paul Pulford has retired from Wilfrid Laurier University and moved to New Brunswick, but returns to continue in the trio. They're all good friends with musical synergy, and love playing together. Come and share in their musical reunion.
2) The series finale on June 21
is a recital by the superb Montreal pianist CHARLES RICHARD-HAMELIN.
Silver medalist and laureate of the Krystian Zimerman award of the best sonata at the International Chopin Piano Competition in 2015, Charles Richard-Hamelin is standing out as one of the most important pianists of his generation. He also won the second prize at the Montreal International Musical Competition and the third prize and special award for the best performance of a Beethoven sonata at the Seoul International Music Competition in South Korea. Charles was recently awarded the Order of Arts and Letters of Quebec and the prestigious Career Development Award offered by the Women's Musical Club of Toronto.
Both concerts are on Friday at 7:30 pm in the beautiful Recital Hall of the Guelph Youth Music Centre
, 75 Cardigan Street, Guelph
