Pianist Sarah Hagen will be teaming up with cellist Rebecca Wenham for a special Mother’s Day concert this Sunday.

The show will see the two musicians play a number of classical works by Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann and Vancouver composer Jocelyn Morlock.

Based in Vancouver, Hagen has performed to critical acclaim throughout North America and Europe. She has been described as an “outstandingly inventive” pianist with “infinite skill”.

In 2009, her debut solo album Glass House Dancing was nominated for Classical Recording of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.

She recently released her second album Devoted: Music of Robert & Clara Schumann, which features solo piano works and a performance with violinist Martin Chalifour.

A career highlight came last year when she won first prize at the 2013 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition. Her performance earned her the chance to play a solo show at New York City’s famous Carnegie Hall.

Wenham has performed across Canada, the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia, winning awards at chamber music competitions in San Francisco, and Osaka, Japan; and at the Banff International String Quartet Competition. She has performed with both classical and jazz musicians throughout her career, but has also played songs by Elvis Costello.

The show takes place at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre on Sunday, May 11, at 4 p.m. Tea and cake will be provided before the show. Tickets are $20, available at ArtFirst, the visitor information centre, at the door, and online at www.revelstokeartscouncil.com.
