Courtenay guests to join local musician on stage

Dave Klinger and guest play classical concert at St. Edmund Anglican Church on May 17 at 2:30 p.m.

Local musician Dave Klinger will receive some out-of-town help for his next concert, Music From Bach to Bartok. Joining him onstage will be pianist Dagmar Kilian, flutist Tracy Canil and clarinet player Brock Lupton, all of whom are from Courtenay.

“We enjoyed each other’s playing and company,” said Klinger. The Parksville musician recently played with Kilian and Canil at a concert in their area. “It was … very well received,” he said.

In the upcoming Parksville show, selections will include both modern and classical pieces for piano, flute, clarinet and piano with four hands. Specially, the audience will hear Debussy’s Clair de Lune, Bach’s Air on a G String, Chopin’s Cornish Rhapsody and Bizet’s Music for Children. There will also be a piece by Klinger called Interlude for Flute and Piano.

“This should be a good concert,” he said.

The show will take place at St. Edmund Anglican Church in Parksville on May 17. Music will start at 2:30 p.m., with doors opening at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased in advance at eventbrite.com or at the door. Youth aged 13 and under are free. Refreshments, which will be served at intermission, are included in the price.
