Jan 18: Joycelin Ng recital

Some of you know Joycelin from her work with Tom Cooper. She and I connected a few years back at a Student Forum: her focus was almost entirely on ministry, but she had chosen to sit with the Arts group. She's a trained pianist, and right away I started in on her, probing to see whether she was just as happy to leave her music behind, or whether there might be a place in her life to resume playing.

Saw her late last year, and I swear she was glowing. Perhaps it was entirely coincidence that she has also returned to playing the music that she loves. But I don't think so.

Anyhow, she had a performance scheduled earlier in January that was snowed out. It's been rescheduled for tonight...

Looking forward to seeing some of you tonight at 7:30pm. Xin and I will be playing some Veracini, Frescobaldi, Albinoni, Rachmaninoff, Hindemith and other great, but already dead composers who wrote for the double bass and piano. They did, however, live between the time of the 16th and 20th centuries and influenced many around them...

Come, relax, and enjoy...refreshments available in the foyer afterwards.

Where: Koerner Recital Hall, 1270 Chestnut Street (at the Vancouver Academy of Music across from Vanier Park, near the Burrard bridge).
When: 7:30-9:00 (ish) pm
Cost: Free

Cheers & thanks!
