About Classical Music for everyone of all ages

Quinte Society for Chamber Music presents 3 classical music events in Stirling, Ontario for everyone of all ages.

Stirling has turned into a mecca for the arts – artists of many disciplines make their way to this beautiful small town nestled North of Trenton because of the receptive audiences and the wide variety of music, arts and theatre.

Quinte Society for Chamber Music presents something for classical music lovers, classical musicophiles and yes, even classical music avoiders. On April 27th, join us for an evening of uplifting music at St. Paul’s United Church featuring a two highly accomplished artists: cellist Amahl Arulanandam and pianist Petya Stavreva.

“Between Friends !!, Two Oaks Entwined” will shine the spotlight on the music of Beethoven, Britten and Shostakovich and you will be pleased to know that they will also play music by Canadian composers Ann Southam and Patricia Holt.

The beauty of Quinte Society for Chamber Music events is that not only do you get to hear outstanding musicians playing almost within arm’s reach of all but there will also be an after-party where you will be able to enjoy refreshments and conversation with Amahl and Petya.

Pianist Petya Stavreva has been touted by internationally renowned Baritone Peter McGillivray as “a sparkling, virtuosic pianist and sensitive collaborator. A complete command of her craft allows for true artistic partnership with her fellow musicians. She is an utter joy to perform alongside.”

Cellist Amahl Arulanandam recently performing in his cello duo, VC2, won this response: “VC2 flabbergasted. Yes, that still happens to people…”

Three opportunities to hear two superb artists up close & personal in “Between Friends II, Two Oaks Entwined”.
