Caledon Chamber Concerts will present the final concert in the 2016-2017 season April 29 at 8 p.m.
The featured artists will be the Eden-Stell Guitar Duo from England.
Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading guitar ensembles, the duo’s chameleon-like ability to communicate in a multitude of musical styles makes them a constantly evolving entity with a unique creative voice.
Mark Eden and Christopher Stell graduated from the Royal Academy of Music as recipients of the Principal’s Prize and the Julian Bream Prize, and continued their studies in Brussels with the Brazilian Guitar Duo, Sérgio and Odair Assad with the aid of a grant from the Worshipful Company of Musicians. Soon after, the Duo were selected to perform for the Park Lane Group’s Young Artists’ Concert Series and won the South East Musicians’ Platform competition, giving debut concerts at London’s Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre where they have since become regular artists, performing at both venues for music organizations such as Live Music Now!, the Kirckman Concert Society, Classical Guitar Magazine and the International Guitar Foundation.
Both artists were elected Associates of the Royal Academy of Music in recognition of their outstanding musical achievements and they both currently hold teaching positions at the Royal College of Music, Birmingham Conservatoire, and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. The duo are D’Addario strings endorsed artists.
The concert will be held at St. James Church, Caledon East. Tickets are $35 for adults, $15 for students 16 years and under, and may be purchased at BookLore, Forster’s Book Garden and Howard the Butcher. Tickets will also be available at the door.
