A taste of classical piano

Called ‘Reflections in Water’, concert pianist Angela Park played two concerts in Slave Lake on May 17 and 18.

The concerts opened with Barcarolle Opus 60 by Frédéric Chopin.

Park spoke about the water imagery in the Barcarolle. She described how it starts gently, but builds at the end.

The first concert was for C.J. Schurter School students. The second, on May 17 at 1 p.m., was open to the public at the Legacy Centre. The audience was mostly children and seniors.

The concert was geared toward children and families, hence the mid-day concert times.

Park is part of Piano Six – New Generation. The concert was organized by the Wildfire Legacy Corporation.

Park played songs from five composers. The concert ended with two songs by Claude Debussy: Clair de Lune and L’isle Joyeuse.
