TOSH's Jan. 18 Music on Sunday program features piano, bassoon and oboe

While the musicians featured in this weekend’s Music on Sunday concert at the Old School House Arts Centre only have to travel from Victoria, all three of them have an international  background.

Jennifer Gunter on bassoon began her musical studies at the age of 16, leaving her home in Ohio to attend Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan. She also now holds music degrees from the Eastman School of Music and Rice University, and she has held orchestral positions in Mexico and the United States. Gunter currently plays with the Victoria Symphony and is a bassoon teacher at UVic.

Alexandra Pohran Dawkins on oboe has held principal positions with the orchestras of the National Ballet Company Orchestra and the Canadian Opera Company. She also has extensive orchestral experience with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and more. She has given master classes in both Ukraine and Armenia, as well as at the universities of British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and Calgary and at the Glenn Gould School. Pohran Dawkins has held a full-time position at UVic since 1986.

Robert Holliston on piano has performed throughout Canada, the USA, England and New Zealand, and has been heard frequently on CBC-Radio. He has recorded CDs with the popular salon ensemble Viveza, trombonist Ian McDougall, clarinetist Patricia Kostek and more, as well as collaborated with many Canadian singers, string players and dancers. A popular public speaker, Holliston has given pre-performance lectures for Pacific Opera Victoria since 1993. He is also currently Head of Collaborative Piano Studies at the Victoria Conservatory of Music, where he also teaches piano and music history.

Join these three Victoria-based musicians as they perform the popular Trio for Oboe, Bassoon and Piano by Francis Poulenc, folk songs by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Bela Bartok, work by Armenian-American composer Alan Hovhaness and more.

The trio will play at TOSH on Jan. 18 from 2:30–4:30 p.m. Admission is $16 or $13 for members. For more info, please call 250-752-6133 .
