Elegance of France brought to light by piano duo

Sunday concert offers a gourmet of music from French composers

This French Connection makes beautiful music together.

The Chemainus Classical Concerts series takes the audience on ‘an afternoon in France’ Sunday, March 11 at 2 p.m. at St. Michael’s Church in Chemainus.

Piano duo Susan de Burgh and Ed LeBarron offer a gourmet of fabulous, audience-pleasing, four-hands piano music by French composers Debussy, Bizet, Poulenc, Ravel and Fauré – with an encore of Saint-Saëns thrown in for dessert.

The renowned Victoria musicians enjoy outstanding reputations as soloists, chamber music players, teachers, adjudicators and examiners. The audience is charmed by the subtlety, wit and joyful spirit they bring to their delightful repertoire.

Audience members are invited to stay after the concert for a ‘Meet the Artists’ reception.

Tickets are available at the door for $20 or $17 in advance from the Best Western Plus Chemainus Inn and Owl’s Nest Bakery Bistro in Chemainus. The cost for children/students is $5.

For information, visit or call Eleanor Montour at 250-748-8383.
