Fraser Valley Symphony presents Somerset Trio

Concert on April 7 at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium in Abbotsford

The Fraser Valley Symphony (FVS) presents the Somerset Trio in concert on Sunday, April 7 in celebration of the symphony’s 35th anniversary.

Members of the Somerset Trio are violinist Alana Lopez, cellist Ben Goheen, and pianist David Antoniuk.

The trio combines music of a range of eras and genres, from pillars of the classical canon to original arrangements of today’s popular tunes, for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

They will perform Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, which has some of the most glorious writing imaginable for the classical-sized orchestra.

Rounding out the program is Brahms’ Serenade No.1, a delightful combination of several short melodic movements.

Founded in 1984, the FVS is composed of musicians from Abbotsford and surrounding communities and is the premier community orchestra of the Fraser Valley. Lindsay Mellor is the conductor/music director.

The concert begins at 3 p.m. at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.

This concert may sell out, so audience members are encouraged to purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students, and $5 for children (12 and under).

They are available at King’s Music in Abbotsford, The Pantry Natural Foods in Mission and online at fraservalleysymphony.org.

Tickets are also sold at the door, if available.
