You can see “Images in Sound” as Chemainus Classical Concerts presents pianist Marco Grieco on Sunday, Oct. 16, at St. Michael’s Church starting at 2 p.m.

It’s a great chance to let your imagination run free as this prize-winning Italian performer vividly brings to life the evocative powers of two 19th Century musical titans: Beethoven and Liszt.

Both composers are renowned for being able to draw pictures in the air for listeners, and this program invites the audience to sit back and enjoy.

Ann Baker Mendenhall is one of the event’s organizers and she’s thrilled to see such a talented performer coming to Chemainus.

“To say that Marco Grieco is award-winning is an understatement. From 2008 to 2010, he won prizes in more than 35 national and international music and piano competitions. In 2011, he was designated among “the best young Italian musicians” at the Milan Conservatory. He has performed to great acclaim in London and China, Italy, South Africa and the United States, and given masterclasses in Thailand, China, Indonesia and Italy. We are most honoured that he is including Chemainus on his North American tour,” she said.

Tickets at the door are $20 each. Music lovers under 18 get in for $5.

This special price for young music lovers is aimed at encouraging families to attend, according to Mendenhall.

There are several outlets where you can buy tickets in advance, at a reduced price. Check out www.chemainusclassicalconcerts.ca for the outlet near you.
