Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra end of season in Qualicum Beach

Young guest flautist won chance to play with group at finale on June 7 at St. Anne St. Edmund Anglican Church

The Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra and its music director Karl Rainer are wrapping up their 2014/15 season this week with a concert at St. Anne St. Edmund Anglican Church.

The concert, titled A Fine Harmony, will include Concerto Grosso V by Georg Händel, An English Suite by Hubert Parry, Day Dreams by Haydn Wood and Cançoneta by Joaquin Rodrigo.

As par tradition, the NCO’s final show of the year will feature the winner of the Concerto Competition for Young Musicians as a guest soloist.

This annual competition is hosted by the NCO to highlight the talents of music students from the Mid-Island region and to give the winner an opportunity to play with an orchestra, said a release from the group.

This year’s winner, 10-year old flautist Uei-Young Jung, will perform Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2 for flute and strings.

Jung has studied flute for four years with Cindy Speelman at the Nanaimo Conservatory of Music and is the youngest ever to win the Concerto Competition.

A Fine Harmony is set for June 7 at 2:30 p.m.  Come, enjoy the vitality and charm of Music Director, Karl Rainer, and the music of this very lively string orchestra. Tickets are $20 for adults, $5 for students and free for children under 12. They can be purchased at the Port Theatre Box Office in Nanaimo or at the concert door.
