Music on Sunday in Qualicum

François Houle plays the clarinet while Jane Hayes plays the piano at The Old School House.

Clarinetist François Houle and pianist Jane Hayes present an afternoon of semi-classical Latin American music at The Old School House Arts Centre in Qualicum Beach this Sunday, March 13.

The program will include Piazzolla, Bernstein, and  D’Rivera.

Houle has established himself as one of today’s most inventive musicians, in all of the diverse musical spheres he embraces: classical, jazz, new music, improvised music, and world music.

Whether he’s performing works by Mozart or Messiaen, appearing as a featured soloist with orchestra, or improvising and embracing live, interactive electronics, Houle demystifies music for audiences everywhere.

He is a faculty member at the Vancouver Community College School of Music.

Since her debut with the Toronto Symphony in 1979, Hayes’ concerts have taken her across Canada, the United States and Europe.

Her early studies were in her native Ottawa and she went on to study with such notable pianists as Bela Siki, Menahem Pressler, Pierre Sancan, and Patricia Parr.

She can be heard frequently on CBC radio.

The program begins at 2:30 p.m. Admission is $13 for members and $16 for non-members.

The Old School House Arts Centre is located at 122 Fern Road West, Qualicum Beach. Please call  250-752-6133 for information or go online to www.theoldschoolhouse.org.
