Vancouver Chamber Music Society’s (VCMS) popular South Delta concert series continues on March 17.
The concert will feature cellist Bion Tsang and pianist Anton Nel presenting highlights from Tsang's famous “The Blue Rock Sessions.”
Inspired by the picturesque Blue Rock Artist Ranch and Studio, Bion cultivated and rearranged beloved melodies with virtuosity, artistry and sincerity.
Tsang noted as “a cellist of remarkable gifts” by the New York Times, has been internationally recognized as one of the outstanding instrumentalists of his generation.
As a seasoned chamber musician, Bion has collaborated with other celebrated musicians such as cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Leon Fleisher. After participating in best-selling concerts last season on the VCMS stage with James Ehnes and Andrew Armstrong, the VCMS is thrilled to feature Bion with pianist Anton Nel this March.
A world-class pianist and master of all the facets of his craft, Nel is a rare combination of a soloist of the highest calibre and a chameleon-like collaborative pianist.
In 1987, he won first prize at the Naumburg International Piano Competition at Carnegie Hall. Within his remarkable multifaceted career, his favourite thing to play is chamber music for its enriching experience as listeners and performers discover new interpretations of the music through intimate performances.
The Delta Series concerts are generously supported by Tsawwassen Collision.
The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. at the South Delta Baptist Church. Tickets are $20 to $40 available at this link.
