Romance in Paris – Johnson and Jung Present Duo Recital

On May 6, two renowned Vancouver Island musicians are coming to Parksville for an extraordinary performance.

Helena Jung, cello, and Carter Johnson, piano, both of whom have enjoyed international careers, will be coming together for the first time to present a special concert of French romantic music.

Helena Jung has had a diverse career as a soloist, chamber and orchestral musician, and teacher on Vancouver Island, B.C. Helena received her BMus and MMus from Ewha University in Seoul, Korea, and has performed with the Jeunesses Musical World Orchestra as a member, the Seoul Youth Philharmonic Orchestra and the Gyeonggi Provincial Philharmonic Orchestra as a principal.

He has won several competition prizes both nationally and internationally, notably taking part in the Hilton Head International Piano Competition, the CMFTA National Competition, the OSM Manulife Competition, and the Julia Crane International Piano Competition.

Their recital, entitled “Romance in Paris,” will include a program of celebrated works by Chopin, Franck, Faure, Saint-Saens, and Massenet and will be held at St. Edmund’s Anglican Church Hall (407 Wembley Rd., Parksville) at 7:30 p.m.
