LARK Ensemble

We're back! Welcome to our exciting second season at the Distillery District's Corkin Gallery. We are excited to present three concerts in this wonderful, resonant space.

 

Some very exciting and cool news about our violinist, Aaron Schwebel: a recent winner in the Canada Council's Instrument Bank Competition, he is the recipient of their J.B. Guadagnini violin (1753). Congratulations, Aaron!

 

Our first concert us on Sunday, November 1st at 7:30 pm, and features the members of the LARK Ensemble in a mix of classics and neo-classics - Mozart and Haydn, Martinu and Kodaly. Please join us for this evening of spectacular music and good cheer. Our intermission food and libations are renowned, and we intend to continue this tradition as a way to get to know our audience.

Tickets are available at the door, or by going to www.brownpapertickets.com (search: Skylight Series) $35 general, $20 students. 

 

The second concert (February 15, 7:30 pm) will feature music of American masters Copland, Harbison, and Brahms.


We are very pleased to be joined by Canadian Opera Company's Principal Clarinet, James Shields and National Ballet's Principal Second Violin, Dominique Laplante as our guests on this occasion.

 

Our final concert of the season (June 13, 7:30 pm) will have a different flavour;  we'll join forces with the fabulous jazz bassist/composer Roberto Occhipinti, and we'll premiere a new quartet composed for us by Genie-nominated composer Jim McGrath. 

 

We hope you can join us, and look forward to seeing you!

 

Les, Aaron, Roberta and Keith
