Grad Recital: Theresa Lane

April 13, 2017 at 8:15 p.m.

Free concert and open to all

Klezmer and Roma (gypsy) elements will be explored through Ernest Bloch’s Sonata No. 2 ‘Poeme Mystique,’ featuring guest pianist Rachel Kreyner, and George Enescu's Romanian Rhapsody and Johannes Brahms’ Violin Concerto in D major with pianist Karen Neary.

A native Calgarian, Theresa Lane began playing violin at the age of four and currently performs with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, having joined the second violin section in 2012.  She graduated with a BMus in Performance with Distinction from the University of Calgary in 2014, and is now working on her Master of Music in Performance degree under Professor Edmond Agopian.  She is grateful to have her research on Klezmer and Roma musical styles funded by SSHRC and Queen Elizabeth II scholarships and is looking forward to continuing her research this summer in eastern Europe.

Theresa appears regularly as a soloist in Calgary.  She was a winner of the 2011 University of Calgary Concerto Competition, and more recently performs in contemporary music and dance festivals, university conferences, and recitals.  Theresa has also worked with New Works Calgary, the UCalgary String Quartet, and the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra.  In addition, she maintains an active teaching schedule.  During the summers, Theresa often studies at international music programs including the Kuhmo Chamber Music Courses in Finland, the Banff Centre, and the Saarburg International Music Festival and School in Germany.
