Classical Concert
This year’s Rising Stars concert features the Genesis Trio, exciting new talent from UBC.  Jonathan López, clarinet, Nina Weber, viola, and Markus Masaites, piano are each formidable musicians, and their consummate collaborative playing is nothing short of miraculous.  Join us in celebrating these emerging talents with a program including repertoire by Bach, Beethoven, and Bruch.
