November 1993
Come out this Sunday (November 28, 1993) at 7:30 p.m. to the Society's first Members' Concert this season to be held at St. Luke's Community Centre located roughly in the middle of the block bounded by Elgin St., Gladstone Ave., Cartier St. and Frank St., Ottawa. Come and play, or just listen.
Originally our concert with Remi Boucher was scheduled for March 18, 1994 however the date has been changed to Friday, March 25, 1994. The Concert will be at 8:30 p.m. at Glebe St. James United Church, Lyon Street at First Avenue in Ottawa. More details will be provided with the next Newsletter.
On Friday, December 10, 1993 at 7:30 p.m., the Hull conservatory will be presenting a student recital with soloists and ensembles. The recital will be held in the Salle Fernand Gratton at the Conservatoire de Quebec a Hull, 430 Alexandre Tache, Hull. Admission is free. On April 8, 1994 at 7:30 p.m., Benoit Dorion will be presenting his degree recital. Another student recital with soloists and ensembles will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on April 22, 1994.
On March 9, 1994, at 8:00 p.m. in Freiman Hall, at the University Music Department, The Guitar Ensemble under the direction of Ray Sealey will be presenting a concert.
If you are going to be in Montreal on Thursday, December 2, 1993 you may wish to consider attending a concert at 8:00 p.m. with Gene Bertoncini accompanied by Eric Lagace on bass. Gene is a jazz guitarist but he is also an excellent classical guitarist and successfully combines the two. Several years ago, Gene did a similar concert for the Ottawa Guitar Society. Unfortunately, the note we received from Montreal did not indicate the place of the concert and if you are interested in attending, please telephone 1-514-481-9133 for further information.
On Sunday, April 17, 1994, there will be a concert at 11:00 a.m. with a prior brunch at 10:00 a.m. at the Salle du Conseil Maison du Citoyen, rue Laurier a Hull, with Patrick Roux and friends. Participating musicians will include Robert Latreille and all of the pieces in the concert will be Patrick's own compositions. Tickets are $12.00 for adults, $10.00 for students and $24.00 family price.
Patrick Roux and Robert Latreille recently released a new compact disc recording which is now available in local classical music stores including Gallery Music and Counterpoint classics. The CD is well recorded and includes the Chopin Waltz Transcriptions which we heard in their last concert.
