    I enjoyed learning about the Southern Ontario Chamber Music Institute. Are there any performances coming up?

    NORTH OAKVILLE TODAY – The Southern Ontario Chamber Music Institute (SOCMI) will present two concerts by the Mercer Park Trio, October 7, in Burlington and October 8 in Oakville.

    Works by Brahms, Haydn and Ravel will be featured.

    Both concerts will be preceded by Masterclasses for music teachers and their students.

    The trio is comprised of multi-award-winning musicians, violinist Akemi Mercer, pianist Angela Park and cellist Rachel Mercer. Rachel plays the “Bonjour” Stradivarius cello, built in 1696, on loan from the Canada Council. Both Akemi and Rachel, former Oakvillians, are alumnae of SOCMI.

    The October 7 concert will be at St. Luke Parish Hall 1382 Ontario Street, Burlington; October 8, at St. Cuthbert’s Anglican Church 1541 Oakhill Drive, Oakville. Both concerts begin at 8 p.m.

    Tickets are available at l’Atelier Grigorian 905-338-2360 and Leslie Music Supply 905-844-3109 in Oakville and Long+ McQuade 905-319-3330 in Burlington, on the Institute’s website http://www.socmi. org or at the door.

    The events are underwitten by Burlington-based Newalta Corporation and the Ontario Arts Council.

    SOCMI, a registered not-for-profit organization, has been dedicated to the promotion of chamber music as an art form through the education of students and the music-loving public since 1988.

    I recently acquired a spinnett as well as an upright piano. The piano tuner is coming on Tuesday to advise if the upright will perform sufficiently for me to reconvene piano lessons on January 8 with Erica Montief here in Savannah. (I studied for only three or four years while my grandfather was alive, and that was about fifty years ago). It was entirely coincidental that I came across your involvement with encouraging Canadian musical talent. You explained it so well on video with not a single academic “um” or “er.” Your voice still has power.
    Very best wishes,
