Elora Festival Singers perform Romantic Four April 25 at church

The Elora Fes­tival Singers will perform some of the greatest romantic music ever written for choir and piano at a concert at St. John’s Church on April 25 at 7:30pm.

Joining the group are the piano duo James Anagnoson and Leslie Kinton.

Anagnoson and Kinton and the Elora Festival Singers have performed together numerous times. The duo is no stranger to Centre Wellington. Kinton liv­ed in Elora for almost four years, and Anagnoson lived in Fer­gus at the same time. They said they “feel a sense of com­ing home” whenever they re­turn.

Under the baton of Noel Edi­son, the repertoire will in­clude Liebeslieder Waltzes, by Johannes Brahms, and Franz Shubert’s Lebenslust, Der Tanz, and Des Tages Weihe.

Anagnoson and Kinton’s successful recital career has taken them throughout the U.S., the U.K., Asia, and every Canadian province and terri­tory. They have been heard on the BBC, Hilversum Radio in Holland, Radio Suisse Rom­ande, Hong Kong Radio, and they are a mainstay of CBC arts programming.

Anagnoson is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and holds a Masters degree from The Juilliard School. Kin­ton was a scholarship student at The Royal Conservatory of Music, and holds a Masters degree in theory and musi­co­logy from the University of Toronto.

Both are currently on the faculty of Glenn Gould School at The Royal Conser­vatory of Music.

This is the final concert of the Singers winter series. Their next performances will be at the Elora Festival, which runs from July 11 to August 3.

Tickets are $40 ($10 for stud­ents) and are available at the festival office, 33 Henderson Street, Elora, by phone, 519-846-0331, or toll free 1-888-747-7550, or visit www.elorafestival.com.
