A Dutch musical duo will be gracing the stages of two churches over the next week.

Pan flautist, Liselotte Rokyta, and organist, André Knevel, will be performing tomorrow (April 3) at Cooke’s Presbyterian Church (45825 Wellington Ave.), and April 7 at Chilliwack Canadian Reformed Church 49379 Chilliwack Central Rd.).

Rokyta studied to play the pan flute at the Academy of Music in Hiversum, Netherlands and at the Academy of Arts in Amsterdam. She also travelled to Romania to familiarize herself with the authentic Romanian style of playing.

Knevel was born in Bussum, Netherlands and began taking piano and organ lessons at the age of eight. He immigrated to Canada in 1975 where he studied at the University of Toronto.

Knevel and Rokyta have been performing together for years. Together, they have done more than 50 concerts throughout the Netherlands, Canada, and the U.S. The Bethel Netherlands Reformed Church Choir will be accompanying them during their two concerts.

The April 3 concert is at 8 p.m. and the April 7 concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Admission is by donation with a suggested donation of $10 for adults, $8 for students/seniors, and $25 for families. For more info, call 604-847-9750.
