CENTRE WELLINGTON – The 32nd season of the highly anticipated Gallery Concert Series is set to enchant music enthusiasts and the local community once again, starting on Nov. 5.

Tre Gatte will take the stage at the Wellington County Museum and Archives on Nov. 5 at 2 pm, presenting a diverse program that spans the globe with trios from various countries, including compositions by Brahms (Germany), Rota (Italy), Frühling (Austria), as well as works from Ukraine, Peru, and the USA.

– Lastly, on April 21, Greg Stroh on flute and Brad Moggach on piano will delight the audience with a selection of Baroque music from across Europe at the Wellington County Museum.

The hallmark of the Gallery Concert Series is its unique blend of musical periods and styles, all set in an intimate and welcoming environment. 

“These monthly Sunday concerts are a charming throwback to the old salons, offering a variety of performances by musical groups, from classical quartets to musical theatre to standards and pop, ensuring there is something for everyone,” organizers say. 

Following each concert, audience members and musicians are invited to mingle over refreshments, fostering a sense of community and connection. 

These concerts make for an ideal family outing, promoting a love for music across generations.

Judith Douglas, an accomplished French horn player who also participates in several of the concerts each season, organizes the Gallery Concert Series. 

All concerts begin promptly at 2pm.
