The Toronto Heliconian Club
Folk Meets Classic
Friday, October 14, 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00)
Our first concert of the season celebrates the beauty and timelessness of folk melodies, which have provided inspiration for classical composers for centuries. Our exploration takes us from England to France, Norway, Romania, Spain and Canada, in repertoire for voice, piano, violin and cello, as well as traditional instruments such as the hurdy-gurdy and the seljefløyte. Featuring Alison Melville, Kye Marshall, Suzanne Yeo, Janet Catherine Dea, Paula Arciniega, Evelina Soulis, Jin Lee Youn, Jane Blackstone, Louise Morley, Dorothy de Val, Allison Arends, and guests Andrea Haddad and Sandra Spencer. Join us for conversation and snacks afterwards.
