TRIPLE FORTE will be kicking off the Algoma Conservatory of Music's 13th Season of fabulous chamber music concerts on Saturday, November 13th. The group is made up of three of the most exciting performing artists in Canada, Jasper Wood (violin), Denise Djokic (cello) and David Jalbert (piano).
The performers that make up this trio have each been recognized for their talents individually. Jasper Wood recently won "Classical Recording of the Year" at the East Coast Music Awards. Denise Djokic performed at the 2002 Grammy awards. David Jalbert is currently one of only two pianists in Juilliard's prestigioius artist diploma program. As a trio, they have been stunning audiences across Canada.
The value of these artists' talents can only be outdone by looking at the enormous price tag of their instruments. Wood and Djokic will be performing on Stradivari instruments that are valued at over $3 million dollars each. That's a whole 'lotta' expensive wood going on. The instruments are on loan to these spectacular artists by the Canada Council.
TRIPLE FORTE will be performing at St. Jerome's Church at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday November 13, 2004. Tickets are available at the Station Mall Box Office and at the door. Adults and Seniors are $25.00. Students under 21 $10.00.
