Marcel d’Entremont and Louis-Philippe Marsolais are guests

Marcel d’Entremont and Louis-Philippe MarsolaisThe 4th and final concert of the PEI Symphony’s 50th Anniversary Season, entitled Tenor, Horn, and Strings, will feature performances by Nova Scotian tenor vocalist Marcel d’Entremont, as well as Montreal-based french horn player Louis-Philippe Marsolais.

Marsolais’ solo, chamber music and orchestral playing has earned him awards from such international competitions as Geneva, Rovereto, Trévoux and the prestigious ARD Competition in Munich. He is also a horn professor at the Université de Montréal and the Domaine Forget Summer Academy. His most recent CD (featuring the Mozart Horn Concertos) just received an Opus Prize for best classical, romantic, post-romantic and impressionist album. During Sunday’s concert, he will perform Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 3 as well as the accompanying solo horn part to Benjamin Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, which will showcase the concert’s featured tenor, Marcel d’Entremont.

Originally from Merigomish, Nova Scotia, Marcel d’Entremont is a recent graduate of the Artist Diploma program from McGill University. He has a Masters of Music from the University of Toronto, and a Bachelors of Music from Acadia University. d’Entremont is a frequent soloist and has performed with the Seton Cantata Choir, Nova Voce Provincial Men’s Choir, South Shore Chorale, Nova Sinfonia, Maritime Concert Opera, Confederation Singers, Cantabile Chamber Singers, Annex Singers and Talisker Players, and the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony and Grand Philharmonic Choir. He is a featured soloist with the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo.

The program will include Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings and Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings. Several members of the Singing Strings youth orchestra will be added to the roster, providing the symphony with a larger string section, and an educational opportunity for those youth musicians.

Concert takes place at Zion Presbyterian Church, Charlottetown, at 2:30 pm on April 15. Tickets are on sale at Confederation Centre’s box office and at the door before the show. There will be a free pre-concert talk at 1:30 pm in Zion’s Youth Chapel, where d’Entremont and Marsolais will provide personal insights into the music they’ll be performing.
