Classical music coming to Ashcroft

An afternoon of French classical music will be presented at St. Alban's church hall on August 7.

Members of the Chamber Musicians of Kamloops will be presenting a recital of French classical music in Ashcroft on August 7.

Ashcroft will get a taste of classical music on Sunday, August 7. when violinist Cvetozar Vutev and pianist Naomi Cloutier will perform Clair de Lune, a fractal featuring music by French composers Jean-Marie Leclair, Cesar Franck, Claude Debussy, and Maurice Ravel.

Vutev has served as a Concertmaster with the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra since 2005, and has been the music director of the Vivace Chorale in Kamloops since 2007. Cloutier plays principal piano and harp for the KSO, and is equally at home with classical and contemporary music.

The music featured at the recital ranges from the 18th to the 20th century, and includes Debussy’s famous “Clair de Lune”.

The concert is being presented by the Chamber Musicians of Kamloops. The concert starts at 3 p.m. at St. Alban’s Anglican church hall at 501 Brink Street. Tickets can be purchased at the door ($15 for adults and $8 for students).
