Bergmann Duo kick off Classical Music Series with PianOpera

PianOpera is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for a morning concert on Oct. 6

Classic opera compositions will get a piano duet makeover as renowned piano-playing pair, The Bergmann Duo, returns to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for their first performance in the Classical Music Series with PianOpera.

Guaranteed to be a performance full of energy and intensity, this delightful morning concert starts off the weekend with an inspiring performance.

Marcel and Elizabeth Bergmann (aka The Bergmann Duo) have performed their piano concerts internationally throughout North America and Europe, have made several recordings for CBC Radio and are the founding members of the International Piano Quartet.

The married couple met at Hochschule für Musik und Theater, a music university in Hanover, Germany. The two studied separately but grew into partners, establishing a new program of study for duo piano at their school. Elizabeth and Marcel have an extraordinary list of triumphs, including first prize at the International Chamber Music Competition in Caltanissetta, Italy and were honoured at the fourth Murray Dranoff International Two Piano Competition.

PianOpera will be an inspiring morning concert that takes on a few of Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann’s favourites from their operatic repertoire — from Mozart’s Magic Flute to Rossini’s Barber of Seville — to Bellini’s Sonnambula. Combined with complimentary coffee, tea, and refreshments in a cabaret setting, this Friday morning concert is the perfect way to start your morning.

PianOpera is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Oct. 6 at 10:30 a.m. Tickets $27 and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
