Gabriola Islanders are in for a treat at 7:30 pm on Sat. Feb. 3, 2018, when Trio Accord (violin, viola, cello), Borealis String Quartet, and concert pianist Arnold Draper come together to perform a concert in Phoenix Auditorium at The Haven, Gabriola Island. These BC musicians form the Faculty of the 17-year-old Gabriola String Ensemble Retreat (GSER), which draws chamber music enthusiasts from Canada, the USA and the UK for a weekend of coaching with these highly respected professionals.

The Faculty concert is always the weekend’s highlight, is usually a wonderful surprise of Trios, Quartets, and possibly even Quintets, and includes performances on Gabriola’s much loved “Lulu” grand piano, purchased with a contribution from GSER.

If you wish to come for dinner before the concert, call The Haven at 250-247-9211, ext. 0 by Jan. 31.

We hope to see you there!
