Accomplished pianist performs in Classical Concerts series Nov. 6

Resume also includes extensive teaching and adjudicating

An audience favourite returns for a Chemainus Classical Concerts performance Sunday, Nov. 6.

May Ling Kwok has been a regular performer in the series since the inception of the St. Michael’s Presents…Society.

“Her extensive discography speaks to her international reputation and outstanding musicianship,” noted Rykie Avenant, the artistic co-director of Chemainus Classical Concerts.

Kwok will be performing a beautifully balanced program for piano of works by Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert and Paderewski.

A very active performer, teacher and adjudicator, Kwok has undertaken concert tours to many parts of the world, performed as a soloist with various symphony orchestras and given master classes in Russia, China and across North America.

She is a founding member of the MacPherson Trio.

“We are quite proud of our meticulously maintained Yamaha grand piano, and so delighted that it gets another chance to shine after last month’s sublime Duo Beaux Arts concert,” added Avenant.

The concert starts at 2 p.m. Nov. 6 at St. Michael’s Church, Chemainus, 2858 Mill St.

Tickets to hear Kwok play are $20 in advance and can be purchased by contacting Eleanor Montour at 250-748-8383. Prices are $25 at the door and $10 for youth under 18.
