The Vancouver Seraph Ensemble performs Saturday at The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford.

Seraph Ensemble presents spring concert in Abbotsford

Performance on Saturday, April 14 at The Reach Gallery

The Reach and the Vancouver Seraph Ensemble are teaming up to host a classical spring concert on Saturday, April 14.

The concert begins at 1:30 p.m. at The Reach, 32388 Veterans Way.

Musicians Susan Choi on piano, Eunsun Park on oboe, Euna Ji (violin), Joonhee Park (viola) and Jinkyung Oh (cello) will present the works of Mozart, Britten and Poulenc.

The program features Piano Quartet in G Minor K 478 by Mozart, Allegro – Andante – Rondo, Phantasy Quartet Op. 2 by B. Britten, and Trio for Piano, Oboe and Cello by F. Poulenc.

The Seraph Ensemble was founded by four Korean female musicians in Vancouver in 2014: Ji, Oh and the two Parks.

They’re all graduates of the College of Music at Yonsei University – one of Korea’s three leading universities and considered the nation’s most prestigious. Their friendship and love of music brought them together to perform at various venues in Greater Vancouver and host biannual benefit concerts.

Their hard work and musical passion resulted in being able to feature many repertoires ranging from Baroque to 20th century.

Eunsun Park came from a musical family and has taught many students at her alma mater. She was a principal oboist in Incheon Philharmonic Orchestra for 20 years and currently is a principal oboist in the West Coast Symphony.

Ji played violin in the Korean Symphony Orchestra for 20 consecutive seasons, performing in Europe and Asia, and is currently a member of the West Coast Symphony.

Joonhee Park made her debut with the Koryo Symphony Orchestra, joined the Asian Youth Orchestra touring five Asian countries, and played in the Incheon Philharmonic Orchestra.

Oh triumphantly won Ewah and Yukyoung, two major music competitions in Korea. She appeared as a soloist with Seoul Sinfonietta and Daejeon Philharmonic Orchestra and played as an associate principal cello player in the Korean Symphony Orchestra.

They will be joined by Choi, a highly versatile pianist who performs extensively as a soloist, chamber musician and piano teacher.

She has appeared in major performance halls in Korea, and has performed with the Abbotsford Symphony Orchestra, played with the Vancouver Pilgrim Orchestra, and at many local venues.

Choi is also a founding member of the Vancouver Chamber Music Society.

Tickets are available only in advance and are $10 for Reach members and $12 for guests. They are available online at thereach/calendar or by calling 604-864-8087.
