THE ROARING 20s with violinist SADIE FIELDS & pianist KEN GEE

November 10, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Guelph Youth Music Centre

Enjoy a dazzling arrangement for violin & piano of Gershwin’s famous Rhapsody in Blue by Thierry Huillet and Ravel’s showpiece for violin, Tzigane PLUS Ravel’s Violin Sonata, Satie, Irving Berlin, Charlie Chaplin, and more great music by fabulous composers of that amazing decade! Violinist Sadie Fields returns to Guelph from Belgium to join pianist Ken Gee for another Guelph Musicfest ENCORE recital. But this one is going to be very special indeed. The Roaring 20s was a decade of incredible energy and creativity around the world, particularly in Paris as well as North America. Like now, it was an amazing comeback from the great influenza pandemic of 1918, with Jazz having a big influence on “Classical” music. This program was created by Sadie and her excitement and love for the music of the 1920s. Canadian/British (and Brussels-based) violinist Sadie Fields performs throughout Europe, the UK and Canada. She is the founding violinist of the Festival Trio and the Belgium-based Flash Ensemble, a flexible chamber ensemble with a string trio as its core, and currently performs with the New European Ensemble (Netherlands) and many other ensembles in Europe. Ken Gee is well known to the music community in Southwestern Ontario and Hamilton region. He now lives in Guelph and is the founder and artistic director of Guelph Musicfest, an annual music festival that will return for its 18th season at the GYMC on May 24, 2024. Buy a glass of wine and chat with the artists after the concert! This special concert will be an LCBO-licensed event. Wine and beer (and non-alcoholic beverages) will be available for sale at the “Speak Easy” Bar (proceeds are in benefit of the GYMC). You can bring your drink into the Recital Hall during the concert. “Meet the artists” reception after the concert. Dressing up is encouraged (but not required). This will be an amazing Guelph Musicfest event. Don’t miss it! SPECIAL ADMISSION PRICE until October 9… Adult $45 (regular $50); Senior 65+ $40 (regular $45); Student/Child $20 (regular $25).
