Nelson's Natasha Hall will be joined by Erik Musseau for a recital on Dec. 23.

Natasha Hall and Erik Musseau will be performing in Nelson on Dec. 23.

Nelson’s Natasha Hall will be returning home this holiday season to perform in recital with longtime friend and colleague Erik Musseau.

The pair will be playing recitals across BC in December, and will be in Nelson at Saint Saviour’s Anglican Church on Friday, Dec. 23 at 7:30 p.m. and in Silverton at the Silverton Hall on Thursday, Dec. 22 at 7:30 p.m. The exciting programme will include works by Mozart, Kreisler, Ravel, Brahms and Canadian composer Scott Good.

Hall is currently based in London England. She has performed as soloist, chamber and orchestral musician in North America, Europe and Asia. As orchestral musician, she performs regularly with the English Chamber and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras.

Hall has received numerous awards for her violin performances and is a winner of the Calgary Concerto and Morningside Music Bridge Chamber Music Competitions. She has appeared on CBC’s The Nature of Things, with David Suzuki, and her interest in humanitarian work has led her to raise over $25,000 through solo benefit performances for charities in Canada, the United States, Georgia and Russia.

Born and raised in the Greater Vancouver area, Musseau studied piano performance at the University of Victoria.

He quickly developed a passion for musical collaborations of all sorts, and went on to work extensively as an accompanist for string players, vocalists, and choirs in the communities of Nelson, Vancouver, Surrey, and Squamish, where he has resided for the last 12 years.
