Selkirk Pro-Musica presents: Marcus Goddard and Candy Siu, with guest Noemi Kiss

On tour throughout the West Kootenays, the Vancouver based duo will perform at St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral on Monday, March 10

On tour throughout the West Kootenays, the Vancouver based duo of Marcus Goddard (trumpet) and Candy Siu (piano and organ) will perform at St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral on March 10 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Selkirk Pro-Musica Concert Series.

Taking advantage of the beautiful organ and new piano of St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral, the program will feature the early medieval music of Hildegard von Bingen, Baroque masterpieces of Purcell, Telemann and Handel as well as Romantic works by Ravel, Saint Saens and de Falla.

In addition, Goddard’s original composition Ancestral Voice, inspired by a collaboration with First Nations artist Mike Dangeli, will have it’s premiere. The work is a soulful reflection on origins: cultural, human and personal. Joining the duo for several works is local Grammy-nominated soprano Noemi Kiss.

Marcus Goddard is an internationally respected trumpet player and bright, imaginative composer whose music has touched the hearts of audiences, musicians and critics alike. His compositions have been described as “shimmering, translucent” and “beautiful” with performances by the l’Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Victoria Symphony, Vancouver Symphony, Turning Point Ensemble, Standing Wave and Vancouver Chamber Choir.

Goddard has held principal trumpet positions across Europe and North America and is currently the Associate Principal Trumpet with the Grammy and Juno award-winning Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

Originally from Hong Kong, Candy Siu received her master of music degree in piano accompaniment from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, England. With a focus on voice and opera accompaniment, Siu continued her training as a répétiteur at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin, Ireland and the Flanders Operastudio in Gent, Belgium.

Siu has been a répétiteur at the Vancouver Opera since 2010. She also enjoys being a freelance ballet accompanist, church organist and piano teacher.

Tickets to their Monday night concert are $15, available at Otter Books and at the door.
