Message from the Artistic Director

Janet Scott Hoyt It is a delight for me to welcome you to our Tenth Anniversary Season! In celebration, we have scheduled a fabulous array of musical treats for your enjoyment.

ERS has a special summer recital for you this year! In partnership with MacEwan University, we present Edmonton-born violinist extraordinaire Jessica Linnebach and pianist Sarah Ho at Muttart Hall on July 12th.

September 20th launches our Main Series with a rare opportunity to hear ESO concertmaster Robert Uchida in recital with Maestro Bill Eddins. On October 25th we partner with The Czech and Slovak Society of Arts and Sciences of Alberta for the much-anticipated return of the Zemlinsky Quartet.

Two of Canada’s most esteemed artists, soprano Donna Brown and pianist Jane Coop, perform a very special art song evening on January 24th. In recognition of our 10th birthday, ERS founder Aaron Au will join them for one of Brahms’ most hauntingly beautiful works.

On April 21st, Andrew Wan and Jonathan Crow present a violin extravaganza unlike anything you have heard before on our stage! There will be instruments to see, a special guest appearance by Robert Uchida, as well as a visit from one of our city’s youngest and brightest ‘stars-to-be’, Jack Forestier.

This season’s Emerging Artists Series introduces two wonderful up-and-coming artists for your enjoyment. Look forward to hearing lyric soprano Whitney Leigh Sloane and pianist Alexandra Munn on November 22nd, and Paris-based pianist Sarah Hoyt on February 21st. Both concerts take place at Holy Trinity Anglican Church.

These recitals promise to be memorable musical experiences for everyone. We look forward to having you join us!

All best wishes,

JANET SCOTT HOYT  
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR | Edmonton Recital Society

Message from the President

Nora BumanisHappy 10th anniversary Edmonton Recital Society!

Many great artists have graced our stage this past decade. Some were young musicians, early in their careers; others, internationally recognized, brought their talent to our city.

The success of ERS is due to the dedication of volunteers, musicians and board members who share the vision of our founding President Aaron Au, former Artistic Director Tanya Prochazka, and current Artistic Director Janet Scott Hoyt.

And to you, our friends, we could not have done this without your support!

We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming recitals.

Best wishes,

Nora Bumanis
PRESIDENT
