Fraser Valley Symphony presents Spring Concert on Sunday

The Fraser Valley Symphony is delighted to present its Spring Concert on Sunday, April 9, entitled “Schubert and Schumann” featuring the ever popular Jane Hayes on piano.

Since her debut with the Toronto Symphony, Jane Hayes’ concerts have taken her across Canada, the United States, Europe and Mexico. She was the principal keyboard player for Orchestra London, a regular soloist with orchestras throughout Ontario, and a featured artist on many CBC radio broadcasts. An active recording artist, she has 17 CDs available on the Fanfare, EMI, Centrediscs, ATMA, Artifact, CBC-Musica Viva and CBC SM5000 labels.

Jane moved to B.C. in 1993 to become a faculty member and subsequent Department Head in the Music Department of Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Langley. She was the recipient of the 2015 Kwantlen Faculty of Arts Distinguished Teaching Award given for outstanding achievement in her field as noted by students.

As soloist, Jane is delighted to return to the FVSO with the Schumann Concerto. Of her performance at the Victoria International Festival, the reviewer wrote that she gave “a stunning account of the Schumann concerto, combining seamlessly fluid passagework with beautiful tone colouring …. Superb.”

Celebrating its 33rd year, the Fraser Valley Symphony is the premier community orchestra of the region.

Concert is at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way in Abbotsford, Sunday, April 9 at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.
