Memorial tribute for Emily Janzen with Mostly Mozart

Expect the extraordinary Clinton Denoni, playing the popular Piano Concerto No. 21 to shine, with soprano Rebecca Paulding's operatic arias

Soprano Rebecca Paulding is one of the featured soloists in Mostly Mozart

The Fraser Valley Philharmonic Society has a solid track record of supporting young performers with its annual Mostly Mozart concert.

This year is no different, and the concert is slated for Saturday, June 13 at Chilliwack United Church.

A choral musical tribute to the late Emily Janzen, a former Orchestra Philomusic member, will see In Paradisum from Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem performed in her memory.

All selections of the night’s program will be conducted by Maestro Leonard Camplin and supported by Orchestra Philomusica, and soloists.

The concert will showcase the extraordinary talents of Clinton Denoni, playing the popular Piano Concerto No. 21, and soprano Rebecca Paulding performing operatic arias from Don Giovanni, The Marriage of Figaro, and favourites from Donizetti’s Don Pasquale and Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, says

Clinton Denoni has made a name for himself in Canadian music circles as a pianist of rare ability, said Quick. He recently completed a Master’s degree in piano performance from the esteemed Cleveland Institute of Music.

Concert pianist Edward J. Parker describes Denoni, his student: “Clinton has been studying piano with me for the past eight years and during this time has matured into an impressively dynamic, colourful pianist who performs with passion and authority … and I foresee a brilliant future for him.”

Paulding has also recently completed a Master’s degree in Opera performance at the University of Manitoba.

“Her vocal ease and dramatic stage presence have enthralled audiences since she first set out upon the operatic path,” said Quick.

Paulding began her vocal studies with Quick at the Chilliwack Academy of Music, and later studied with Ingrid Suderman at Trinity Western University and with Joanne Hounsell at the Victoria Conservatory.  She was the 2009 B.C. provincial winner of Senior Classical Voice, as well as the Silver Medalist for Grade 10 RCM Voice. Paulding has also won numerous awards at festivals, including two provincial awards for performance of Canadian Music.

This will be Paulding’s second appearance at the annual Mostly Mozart celebrations.

Both young musicians will pursue doctoral studies in performance in Fall 2016.

This hand-selected professional orchestra will open the concert with the delightfully youthful Symphony No. 1, K16, as well as having plans to perform the Divertimento in F+, K138 and Symphony No. 30, K202.

Tickets $25 General and $20 Seniors/Youth 19 and under, may be purchased at Long & McQuade Music, Chilliwack (cash only) and King’s Music, Sardis (CC accepted). For further information call 604-316-2729.

The Fraser Valley Philharmonic Society’s Mostly Mozart 2015 is for Saturday, June 13, 2015 7:30 p.m. at Chilliwack United Church.
