About This Event

The Amici Chamber Ensemble celebrates its 30th anniversary with a special concert featuring exquisite soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian and Friends. Joaquin Valdepeñas, one of the most distinguished clarinetists of his generation, cellist "[of] rare delicacy and clarity” David Hetherington, and "keyboard acrobat" pianist Serouj Kradjian have invited some of the finest musicians to join the celebration. Isabel Bayrakdarian, possessing “a soprano voice that combines lyricism with remarkable dramatic instincts,” (Time) Royal Conservatory faculty members, and principals from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra join Amici in a celebratory concert that features some of their favourite repertoire, including works by Brahms, Beethoven, and Bernstein.
