Haliburton Concert Series releases 2018 lineup

On Oct. 28 at the final concert of its 2017 season​ the Haliburton Concert Series announced the program for its 2018 season. It will be a special and celebratory year because it is the 40th anniversary of concerts presented by the organization.

Good news for audience members who no longer drive at night: it was announced that concerts will be moved to 2:30 p.m. on Sundays to make it easier to attend.

The first concert will take place on  May 27 and will feature the  MitBravour Trio. It is made of up pianist Mauro Bertoli violist Jethro Marks and cellist Paul Marleyn. Individually these three musicians have won numerous awards and performed at prestigious festivals and concert venues around the world. Mauro Bertoli has performed twice before in Haliburton. The audience loved him and his playing and now he will return with two other wonderful musicians.

The second concert will take place on  Sept. 30.  Pentaèdre a lively wind quintet consisting of flute clarinet oboe bassoon and French horn will perform a diversified and appealing repertoire. They are widely praised for the technique precision and colour they bring to every performance.

On Oct. 28 the final concert of the season will feature  The Poet & The Singer with poet Jeff Pinkney soprano Leslie Fagan and pianist Lorin Shalanko. We are delighted to have been able to reschedule this concert and that The Poet has made a full recovery from his surgery.

Subscriptions are now on sale. Only $60 for three concerts for adults and $25 for students. Please contact Fred Shuttleworth at  705-455-9060  or  fred.ann.shuttleworth@gmail.com
