Galena Trio set show for Nelson

Sharing their passion for the art of chamber music, the Galena Trio performs 7:30 p.m. April 13 at the St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral in Nelson.

Formed in the summer of 2011 by cellist Johanne Perron, pianist Susanne Ruberg-Gordon and clarinetist Nicola Everton while on faculty at the Valhalla Summer School of Music, Galena is now trio-in-residence for the Valhalla Arts Foundation.

Although all three musicians are busy professional performers and educators, their joint musicianship is recognized by their warm, intelligent and passionate performances.

Spanning the country with Perron in Montreal, Ruberg-Gordon in Canmore and Everton at home in Nelson, the trio make an effort to meet, sometimes in the Kootenays or more often in Calgary where Perron and Ruberg-Gordon teach at Mt. Royal University.

Galena recently completed a two-week intensive residency at the Banff Centre, working primarily with Director Henk Guittart as well as pianist Jane Coop and St. Lawrence String Quartet member Lesley Robertson.

Making this performance a family affair, Johanne’s daughter Isabella will be joining the group on vocals and violin. At just 13, Isabella has already released her first cd, which is now listed in the Top 10 best sellers in Quebec. The program will feature a medley of compositions ranging from works for solo cello, cello/violin duo, vocals and clarinet trio including everything from the classics of Beethoven and Brahms to contemporary pop.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at Otter Books or at the door.
