Albertina Chan

Classical trio takes stage in Sunday series

Cordei Harp and Violin Duo joined by guest soprano Catherine Laub in Old School House concert event

Christmas music gets a classical twist Sunday when The Old School House Music on Sunday series welcomes the Cordei Harp and Violin Duo with guest vocalist Catherine Laub.

The Vancouver-based Cordei duo features Albertina Chan on harp and Janna Sailor conducting and playing violin.

This unique combination of two masterful instrumentalists and a wonderful singer is certain to inspire Yuletide spirit with traditional carols, well-known Christmas songs and seasonal selections from some of the great classical composers.

Chan is a versatile musician, active in both the contemporary and classical realms. As a chamber and orchestral musician, Albertina has performed for the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, the Turning Point Ensemble, Music on Main; the Erato Ensemble; and the Vancouver Film Orchestra.

Sailor is firmly established as a musician and musical educator of extraordinary scope and versatility. As a conductor, she has directed numerous ensembles ranging from choirs, new music ensembles and youth orchestras.

Laub, a soprano, moved to Vancouver from New York and has since become an integral part of the city’s musical life as a performer, educator, composer, and arts administrator.

Sunday’s concert begins at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $16 and are available in advance at the TOSH gift shop. For more info, call 250-752-6133 or visit www.theoldschoolhouse.org.
