Valley favourite Bruce Vogt steps into vacancy

Pianist Bruce Vogt is next up in the Chemainus Classical Concerts series with his concert, Beethoven and More

Pianist Bruce Vogt is next up in the Chemainus Classical Concerts series with his concert, Beethoven and More, on Sunday, Jan. 24 starting at 2 p.m.

The event is held in the historic confines of St. Michael’s Church in downtown Chemainus.

Vogt’s arrival combines both good and bad news.

The bad news for organizers was that pianist Antoine Joubert had suffered a concussion and has had to postpone to another season his concert featuring the Chopin Études, which had been planned for Jan. 17.

The good news is that pianist Vogt stepped up to replace him, making himself available for a performance on Jan. 24.

Vogt delights audiences wherever he plays, and his performance experience has taken him all over the world.

Chemainus audiences also always enjoy his joyful playing, not to mention his insightful comments about the music.

This concert will feature music by Beethoven and Haydn so why not take time out for a trip to St. Mike’s and be transported back in time to revel in the profound yet gracious music of the classical era?

Tickets at the door are $20 for adults or $5 each for anyone under age 18. In advance they are $17 each. Check chemainusclassicalconcerts.ca for the nearest ticket agent or call 250-748-8383.
