    May 1 2016: A stunning, funny and pianistic afternoon was spent with the wonderful Fung-Chiu Piano Duo

    So much versatility, speed and ebullience from this exciting duo on the world stage. How wonderful to hear the classics infused with modern themes and melodies, making for a simply delightful concert by the two gifted artists. 

    Following the 2:00 - 4:00 PM concert in the Newmarket Theater, the Fung-Chiu Duo also conducted a Masterclass - see Photos below - to our highly engaged up and-coming new talent in our region.

    And here is the Masterclass!

    March 6, 2016: It was a delight to have renowned clarinetist James Campbell to perform at the Newmarket Theatre, with the Afiara String Quartet and with his son, guitarist/composer Graham Campbell - such spirited chamber pieces and selections, richly infused with the sound of jazz.
