The string trio Infinitis is featured in the first concert of the three-show Moment Musicale concert series in Surrey

A second year of musical moments

Surrey concert series starts again this weekend.

Three concerts are set to hit the local stage beginning this weekend, bringing an array of professional musicians, instruments and musical styles Surrey’s way.

The first in the Moment Musicale series features Infinitis, a string trio that will perform a selection of songs ranging from classical works to hip hop arrangements. Local students musicians will also join the group for some jazz tunes.

The concert takes place Sept. 24, 7:30 p.m. at St. Luke Lutheran Church, 10177 148 St.

The second performance in the series will spotlight longtime solo bassoonist George Zukerman on Dec. 3. Accompanied by pianist Leslie Janos, musicians from the church will be invited to perform some Christmas music as well.

The third concert, scheduled for Feb. 11, will bring Langley Ukulele Ensemble to stage, performing romantic music appropriate for the pre-Valentine’s Day show. Professional ukulele player Paul Luongo, who is also a violinist, will be a featured soloist.

The concert series was created last spring by Surrey musician and concert producer Jinhee Park, Ian Hampton (founding member of the Purcell String Quartet) and a handful of other music enthusiasts.

The all-ages concerts all take place at St. Luke Lutheran Church at 7:30 p.m., with a free reception to follow.

Tickets are available by subscription to all three concerts ($57 for adults, $52 for students and seniors). Rush tickets ($35 per concert) may be available only at the door. Call JP Productions at 604-765-9032 or the church at 604-584-6446.
