Selkirk Trio will play Rouge Gallery in Rossland

The Kootenay based Selkirk Trio features a program highlighting the rich repertoire for clarinet, cello and piano.

The Selkirk Trio will play the Rouge Gallery on Saturday April 14. The concert begins at 7:30 and tickets are $15. Rossland's Nicola Everton is part of the musical trio.

On tour throughout the East and West Kootenays, the Kootenay based Selkirk Trio features a program highlighting the rich repertoire for clarinet, cello and piano.

With pianist Sue Gould living in Golden, cellist Jeff Faragher in Nelson and clarinetist Nicola Everton hailing from Rossland, finding a middle ground for rehearsals was the biggest challenge.

The three professional musicians are used to packing an intense punch with their rehearsals and concert tour which will cover 15 concerts in seven days, including 10 concerts for the Health Arts Society in extended care facilities throughout the region.

All three musicians are active chamber and orchestral musicians in B.C. and                          Alberta.

Everton was a member of the Vancouver Symphony for over 20 years and now joins principal cellist, Jeff Faragher in the Kootenay Symphony.

Susan Gould originates in Calgary, Alberta and has been performing as a pianist since her debut with the Mount Royal College orchestra at the age of eleven.

Outside of their busy performance schedule, music education is a passion for the trio.

Faragher directs the Obligato string program in Nelson, Gould the Young Voices Children’s Choir in Golden while Everton enjoys teaching privately, both adults and youth.

The varied program takes the listener on a musical journey and includes standard classics by Beethoven and Bruch, complex rhythms of Balkan composer Tajcevic, “Godfather” composer Nino Rota’s trio as well as jazz inspired works by Cuban composer Paquito D’Rivera and Cole Porter.

The Selkirk Trio will play the Rouge Gallery, on their expansive tour of the region, on Saturday April 14.
