Young Musicians Extraordinaire: Mari Coetzee, cello and Angela Ryu, violin

Young Musicians Extraordinary, Saturday, April 23, 2016 in High River, Alberta. Who knew what two teenagers playing the cello and violin and accompanied by piano had in store for them? From Bach to Haydn, Mari Coetzee on cello and Angela Ryu on violin took command. Their sensitive interpretations varied from what they described as medieval or pastoral or just mysterious with jazz rhythms in the background. How did they do it? Rigorous studies at Mount Royal in Calgary and Juilliard in New York, repeated wins at prestigious Canada-wide young musician competitions, master classes with world-class artists — the studies are daunting. These two gifted musicians are developing their professional careers, and High River has been privileged to hear them in the process. Thanks also to Susanne Ruberg-Gordon on piano.
Brava! And best of luck for further command performances in your futures.
Look who is coming to High River for the 2016/17 Gift of Music Season!
