The Kootenay’s very own La Cafamore String Quartet is joined by clarinettist Nicola Everton, performing on Friday, September 28 at Christ Church Trinity in Invermere.

With a rich repertoire for clarinet and string quartet, the program features one of the great masterpieces for this combination, the romantic and evocative Brahms Clarinet Quintet. Rounding out the program, audiences will enjoy Beethoven’s Op. 18 No. 4 string quartet and the rock/jazz quintet by American Bill Douglas complete with a breakout rock vocal etude mid performance.

The La Cafamore String Quartet is enjoying their fifth season as a performing ensemble. Since the beginning, the focus has been on bringing solid and exciting programs to concert goers throughout the region. The energy and enjoyment generated by the group is hard to ignore. The La Cafamore Quartet has received high praise from professionals and lifelong music lovers alike.  Audiences are drawn into the performance and swept away on the musical journey. Violinists Carolyn Cameron and Angela Snyder, violist Alexis More and cellist Jeff Faragher are all active performers and seasoned musicians.

Clarinetist Nicola Everton has recently become a resident of the Kootenays after spending over twenty years as a member of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. As a symphony musician, she has enjoyed touring Asia and North America with the orchestra, performing with a variety of international artists including Yo-Yo Ma, the Chieftains, Diana Krall and Leslie Feist and for various dignitaries including the Dalai Lama and the Queen. She now directs several concert series in the region and is an active performer and educator. Don’t miss the Kootenays’ very own La Cafamore String Quartet in this amazing classical music performance.
