For classical music lovers, it’s the most wonderful time of the year.
The Cheam Vista Classical Concerts (CVCC) season is set to start on Feb. 13 at Riverside Church (7452 Morrow Road) in Agassiz. The upcoming concert will feature One, Two Trio with special guest Alan Matheson.
One, Two Trio features the talents to Katherine Evans (trumpet), Valerie Whitney (French horn) and Jeremy Berkman (trombone). The trio was founded during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in hopes of bringing chamber music to the outdoors, where listeners could take in the dulcet tones from a safe distance.
One, Two Trio has recorded performances for the Chamber Music in the Schools program and recently performed as part of University of British Columbia’s Wednesday Noon Hour and in Maple Ridge for their ACT Theatre Presents series.
In addition to their upcoming local performance, Evans, Whitney and Berkman will also be performing in Langley and at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta.
Matheson is a Vancouver-based pianist, trumpeter, composer and arranger. He currently teaches at the music department at UBC, Vancouver Community College and Capilano University. Matheson is a graduate from Northwestern University in Illinois and his music appears on at least 10 albums.
Other performers set to take the local stage this concert season are the Elektra Women’s Choir on March 11, Kirbogen Trio on April 25 and Trio Kalysta on Nov. 2.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for all CVCC performances, and the performances begin at 7 p.m.
The CVCC Society was formed in November 2016 with the dream of “bringing high-quality, live classical music to our small town.”
