The Edmonton Recital Society offers innovative and inspiring concerts in an intimate setting. Get up close to world-class artists, many with ties to Edmonton, as they perform beloved masterworks and exciting new compositions.
An invitation from the Artistic Director
I am delighted to introduce the Edmonton Recital Society’s 2019/2020 season. This is our best so far, with compelling artists from our city, our country and beyond!
Pianist Katherine Chi, the Zemlinsky Quartet, violinist Axel Strauss and pianist Stéphane Lemelin are all scheduled. Up-and-coming cellist Kathleen de Caen will play the Prochazka Tribute recital. And Canada’s favorite coloratura soprano, Tracy Dahl will brighten your January.
Expect much-loved chamber music masterpieces from our Music Among Friends concerts [November 10, 2019 & May 3, 2020]. This year’s Emerging Artist is the remarkable young violinist, Sonya Shin.
In February, look for an ‘ERS Special’ with organist Jeremy Spurgeon at the Winspear Centre. The Davis Concert Organ, one of the best in North America, is rarely heard in recital. You’ll want to be there! (Note: This concert is not included in the season ticket.)
This is going to be an extraordinary season. We’d love to have you with us!
