2014 - 2015 29th Season
Joan Blackman Artistic Director
“Where words leave off, music begins.”
- Heinrich Heine
For our 29th season we are pleased to present some of the West Coast's finest musicians performing chamber music you love and enjoy. In addition to the regular Vetta Chamber Players, this season features tenor Benjamin Butterfield, pianist Jane Coop, and the return of the ever–popular harpsichordist Michael Jarvis. New to the Vetta stage is David Gillham, professor of violin at UBC and former member of the Arianna String Quartet, and Barry Lieberman, professor of bass at the University of Washington. Highlights from the season include Chausson's luscious Concerto for violin, piano & string quartet, Dvorak's American Quartet and Schubert's beloved Trout Quintet. From Albinoni to Kodály, from Vivaldi to Vancouver composer Marcus Goddard- our concerts are known for their balanced programming, intimate and friendly atmosphere, and for the excellence of the performances. Both the afternoon and the full length evening concerts include pre–concert talks and post-concert receptions. Come and see why people say Vetta Chamber Music concerts are Vancouver's best kept secret!
