Renowned pianist to open concert series at Rose Gellert Hall in Langley – Aldergrove Star

Langley Community Music School returns with its annual “Café Classico Concert Series” later this month, meaning music lovers can once again enjoy afternoons filled with music, refreshments and conversation.

Acclaimed pianist Corey Hamm will kick off the series at Rose Gellert Hall on Sunday, October 23 at 2:30 p.m.

Dr. Hamm is an award-winning associate professor of piano at the University of British Columbia. He has toured and recorded extensively and has commissioned over 200 solo, chamber and concerto works, including PEP (Piano and Erhu Project), The Nu: BC Collective and Hammerhead Consort.

“Professor Hamm is a master of the piano, and this monumental work will absolutely shine with his gifted touch,” commented Concert Artistic Director Elizabeth Bergmann.

The concert will begin with a casual conversation between Bergmann and Hamm, who will share stories and provide insight into the music.

There will then be a short break for coffee, tea and sweets before the concert, which starts at 3:15 p.m.

“These Sunday concerts are a wonderful way for our community to come together and enjoy an afternoon of music with amazing local artists.”

Additional concerts in the series promise a wide range of music from classical favorites to jazz and contemporary. The 2022-23 lineup will include Bernard Blary (flute), Eric Hominick (piano), Emma Ringrose (oboe) and Mark Anderson (piano).

Single tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $10 for students.

A Flex Pass, which offers four concerts to choose from, costs $79 for adults and $72 for seniors.

A subscription for the full season (six concerts) is available at $112 for adults, $102 for seniors and $59 for students.

To reserve tickets, people can call the box office at 604-534-2848. LCMS is located at 4899 207 St, Langley.
