Mozart in the Morning: Joanna G'froerer and friends in concert Feb. 2
Jan 27 2010
“Who says that concerts always have to take place at night?
Not Ottawa cellist Julian Armour.” “The morning concerts start Feb. 2, with a performance at Dominion-Chalmers Church involving Armour and other high-profile Ottawa musicians, including NACO principal flute Joanna G'froerer. The concert will include pieces by Mozart, Haydn and William Grant Still. If it's as wonderfully performed as Armour's Christmas concert was, audiences are in for some memorable music-making.

“The Feb. 2 concert will include Mozart's Quartet for Flute and Strings in A major, an
arrangement of Haydn's
Symphony No. 94 and William Grant Still's Folk Suite No. 1. In
addition to Armour and G'froerer, musicians will include harpsichordist Thomas Annand,
violinists Manuela Milani and Andréa Armijo Fortin and violist Guylaine Lemaire. It starts
at 10:30 the church, O'Connor Street at Cooper. Coffee will be served starting
at 9:45 a.m.” “
