Musical feast for the ears at TOSH

Music on Sunday performances continue to delight Qualicum Beach

Shawn Earl

Two superb, young classical musicians from Vancouver will be providing the entertainment at The Old School House Arts Centre (TOSH) for Music on Sunday Nov. 27.

With Shawn Earle on clarinet and Christine Eggert on piano, the afternoon will be an inspirational musical feast for the ears.

Earle performed in Qualicum Beach with the Horns of Plenty back in October this year for the TOSH Harvest of Music.

The Halifax, Nova Scotia, native began playing clarinet at the age of seven. Since that time he has presented solo recitals and performed in orchestras and chamber ensembles throughout North America and Europe.

Earle completed his Master of Music degree at the University of Victoria where he studied with Patricia Kostek. Additionally, he has also been active as a teacher, completing a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Toronto and instructing numerous clinics, master classes and maintaining a private studio.

Eggert completed her Masters in Music (Piano Performance) with Eugene Skovorodnikov at the University of British Columbia in 2010. She also holds an ARCT and a BMus in Piano Performance from the University of Alberta, both with High Distinction. She is the recipient of many scholarships, notably the Mary Stinson Prize in Accompaniment, a Beryl Barnes award, the Anne Burrows Memorial award, and several leadership and academic excellence awards.

Eggert has performed in small ensembles and as a soloist with Bluthner Piano Series, Dodson Room Series, Artsway Ambassadors, with Out For Lunch series at the Vancouver Art Gallery, for the Ryerson Summer Concert Series, and for Delta Art Council’s Young People’s Concert Series. In 2008, Eggert attended the Franz Schubert Institute in Austria, and in 2010 the Theatre of Art Song course at VISI. Currently, she maintains an active studio schedule at Vancouver International School of Music and a private studio.

Music on Sunday Nov. 27 goes from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at The Old School House Arts Centre, 122 Fern Road West, in Qualicum Beach. Admission is $16. For more information phone 250-752-6133 or visit
