Pianist Sarah Hagen promises a “sultry and jazzy” Morning Musicale when she welcomes clarinetist François Houle on Monday, Nov. 16.

Her intimate musical mornings, on the stage of the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre, attract music lovers who want to learn as well as listen.

It’s a great chance to hear Houle in music that sensuously includes hints of many genres.

Hagen says the clarinet is unique and the program she and Houle have put together will be a splendid showcase. Brahms’ Clarinet Sonata No. 2, Schumann’s Fantasy Pieces for Clarinet and Piano and Poulenc’s Clarinet Sonata are to be performed.

Each Morning Musicale begins with an informal pre-concert chat, accompanied by coffee, tea and a table of treats.

It all starts at 10:30 a.m. Tickets are $24 each or $22 for Elder College members.

Remember: seating is limited.

Tickets are available in person at the Cowichan Ticket Centre, or by calling 250-748-7529 or online at
