Mission pianist and violinist Rafael Brisebois, 14, and Abbotsford violinist Calvin Dyck present a concert titled Morning Melodies on Thursday, Nov. 5 at Bakerview Church (2285 Clearbrook Rd.) in Abbotsford.

The one-hour program is presented at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., with admission by donation.

Brisebois is currently working on his ARCT (associate diploma) in piano and violin from the Royal Conservatory of Music and is principal violist for the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra. He has won many awards not only for his playing but also for his compositions.

He and Dyck will perform a couple of duets, including the virtuosic Handel-Halvorsen Passacaglia, Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 26 and the Toccatta by Prokofiev.

In addition, pastor Harry Heidebrecht will tell one of his unforgettable stories. Seating is limited to 45 people for each performance. Links to register can be found online at calvindyck.com.
