Sooke Philharmonic group to play spring melodies

Four music friends and two couples will make music together this Friday evening at a special concert

Four music friends and two couples will make music together this Friday evening at a special concert under the auspices of the Sooke Philharmonic.

Violinists David Stewart and Paule Prèfontaine are living in Norway where Stewart is the concertmaster of the famed Bergen Philharmonic (who counts among its conductors Edvard Grieg and Johan Halvorsen) and where Prèfontaine plays with the first violin section.

Pamela and Yariv Aloni are from Victoria (Pamela is the cellist of the Lafayette String Quartet and Yariv is a violist and music director of the Victoria Chamber Orchestra, Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra and the Galiano Ensemble).

The two couples met 20 years ago when they played together in the Courtenay Festival and have remained friends ever since.

Expect classics such as Schubert’s Quartet-Satz, in C minor, Dvořák’s Miniatures, Op 75a, for Two Violins and Viola, Halvorsen’s Passacaglia, on a theme by Handel, for violin and Viola, and Mendelssohn’s Quartet in A minor, Op 13.

The concert is this Friday (March 10) at 7:30 p.m. at the Holy Trinity Church, 1962 Murray Rd., in Sooke. Tickets are $20 at the door.
