THH CLARION QUARTET'S PRESENTATION OF THE TEREZEN PROJECT ON NOVEMBER 11 WAS A SOBERING REMINDER OF THE NAZI ERA.
Their sensitive interpretation of works by Ullmann, Schulhoff and Korngold resonated with the Remembrance day mood as well as the 79th anniversary of Kristallnacht. The audience agreed that this "banned music" is worthy of consideration as equal to the standard repertory.

We now look forward to the first concert of the 2018 season with TOM ALLEN and LORI GEMMEL as they take us back to mythological times with their production of "The Death of Hercules: Greek Mythology in Story and Music". It should be both entertaining and educational.

THE REST OF THE SERENATA MUSIC SEASON IS LISTED BELOW.

SERENATA MUSIC 2017-2018 SEASON CONTINUES
2018 BEGINS WITH TOM ALLEN AND LORI GEMMEL.

Saturday, February 24, 2018, 8 P.M., Wolf Performance Hall,
Tom Allen, CBC broadcaster (Shift, CBC Radio 2) and Musical Storyteller, and Lori Gemmell, harp.
Tom is well know to CBC 2 listeners for his vast knowledge of music and musicians.
He and Lori will present "The Death of Hercules: Greek Mythology in Story and Music". Sex, violence, betrayal, love and virtuoso musical brilliance. With the transporting music of Marjan Mozetich, they bring you to the deathbed of the aging Hercules and the story of the struggle in which his limitless might was simply not enough. And, with R. Murray Schafer's virtuoso tour-de-force "The Crowne of Ariadne", we pass through through the terrifying twists of the labyrinth with Ariadne, Theseus and the Minotaur! See http://www.tomtomallen.com/tom-lori.html

NEXT CONCERT
March 17, 2018 The London Connection 3. An all Schubert program with Scott St. John, violin, Sharon Wei, viola, Fiona Robson, cello, Joe Philips, double bass, and Angela Park, piano. If you suspect something fishy, you're right.
