If you are, then it is my completely unbiased opinion that you should go to the Brandon Chamber Players concert tonight. Here’s a set of short excerpts from my piece, Golden, that is being performed this evening. Erik Paetkau is conducting, and Naomi Forman sings the vocal solo. Also on the program is Shostakovich’s first piano concerto – the excellent Russian-Canadian pianist Alexander Tselyakov is the soloist.
