Clarinet & Bassoon Duo Concert

Clarinetist François Laurin-Burgess and bassoonist Antoine Saint-Onge will present a duo concert at St. Thomas’ Anglican Church in Belleville on Sunday afternoon, January 21st, as part of “Music at St. Thomas’.” “We do not own a grand piano or any piano suitable to give concerts,” says music director Francine Nguyen-Savaria. “This forces us to think outside the box when it comes to programmes. There is so much beautiful repertoire, and venturing into less popular instrumental combinations allows us to offer a special concert experience.” The programme will feature works by Bach, Beethoven, Poulenc and Koechlin.

The concert will start at 4:30 PM. A reception will follow during which light refreshments will be served.
