Halifax chamber music presenter Cecilia Concerts has launched its 30th season, which begins September 14 with a fundraising gala featuring opera star Measha Brueggergosman.
Among the stellar musicians in the lineup are French hornist Mimisu Lee and pianist Lala Lee, who will perform works from the classical-romantic repertoire including Ludwig van Beethoven’s horn sonata, Op. 17 and Robert Schumann’s Adagio and Allegro, Op. 70. The concert takes place January 6, 2019.
Named one of CBC’s “30 Hot Classical Musicians Under 30” in 2017, Lala made her debut with Symphony Nova Scotia under Bernhard Gueller that same year. She’s also performed with the Chebucto Symphony Orchestra and Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra.
Mimisu is the winner of the 2017/18 Chebucto Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition. She’s performed with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestral Institute at Whistler Orchestra, Scotia Festival Orchestra, Dalhousie University Chamber Orchestra, Dalhousie University Symphony, the Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra, and the San Diego International Youth Orchestra.
Both sisters currently study at the Glenn Gould School in Toronto.
