CMC BC Region Presents:Murray Adaskin Salon Concert Series: Celebrating our Legacy- Elliot Weisgarber!
Karen Smithson, Artistic Advisor

A graduate of Eastman School of Music, Weisgarber (1919-2001) studied in the US with such composer greats as Howard Hanson, and Nadia Boulanger. He came to BC to become immersed in the flourishing Asian community, and pursue his passion for Japanese music. Weisgarber is hailed for uniquely merging Eastern musical influences with North American styles – his repertoire often melds chamber music forms with Japanese folk elements. Renowned British flutist Roderick Seed, versatile oboist Tony Nickels, the widely recorded clarinetist Gene Ramsbottom, distinguished bassoon player Gregory Cukrov, veteran horn player Brian G’froerer, and UBC School of Music’s Richard Epp (piano) will bring Weisgarber’s Empty Sky and Five Pieces to life.
