Chocolate and chamber music will be the order of the evening Friday at the SAGA Public Art Gallery.

Chocolate and chamber music will be the order of the evening Friday at the SAGA Public Art Gallery.

The Sun Rivers Trio from Kamloops will perform “a tasteful program of intimate music from the 19th to the 21st centuries,” says former resident and Shuswap Arts Council board member Robin Suddaby.

Sun Rivers Trio is comprised of professional musicians and includes Cvetozar Vutev on violin/viola, Sally Arai playing the clarinet and pianist Naomi Cloutier.

They are joined by special guest artist Jean Ethridge, Salmon Arm pianist and composer, who will team up with Sally Arai to perform her Rondo for clarinet and piano.

The ensemble will be heard in Trio in A Minor, by the 19th Century German composer Carl Reinecke, Tango! by Canadian composer Patrick Cardy, Contrasts by Hungarian composer Bela Bartok, and Chocolates by Canadian composer David McIntyre.

“Tasty tid-bits all,” says Suddaby.

A busy composer, conductor, teacher and pianist, Suddaby says Reinecke knew Schumann, Mendelssohn and Liszt, and taught Grieg. He was the earliest-born composer to have his playing recorded.

“This charming trio was composed toward the end of his life, he died in 1910,” Suddaby says.

Canadian composer Patrick Cardy was born in 1955. He was a prolific composer of symphonies and chamber music and was active in various musical organizations. Suddaby describes Cardy’s music as colourful, dramatic, lyrical, and direct in expression.

The concert plays out Friday, Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at SAGA Public Art Gallery. Admission is $20 at the door ($15/students, $40/family).  Refreshments will be served – and yes, there will be chocolates.
