Classical concerts start Feb. 2 in White Rock

WHITE ROCK — Peninsula Productions and Music Encore Concert Society have joined forces to create four Sunday-afternoon concerts at The First United Church in White Rock.

The concerts, starting Feb. 2 and ending in May, will feature musicians from Canada, Russia and Italy.

Eugene Skovorodnikov is the artistic director of Music Encore Concert Society and also performs in the series.

"When I brought the idea of the series to the city (of White Rock) they were delighted," Skovorodnikov stated.

City authorities suggested he meet with Peninsula Productions and a partnership was formed.

Skovorodnikov has performed in concert halls around the world, including those in Russia, China and Italy. He recently moved to the South Surrey area.

Peninsula Productions is a White Rock/South Surrey-based not-forprofit organization. The City of White Rock is sponsoring the series, which kicks off at 3 p.m. Feb. 2 with a performance by Skovorodnikov and Yuri Zaidenberg. Other concert dates are scheduled for March 9, April 6 and May 4. Tickets are $25/$15 per concert, or $80/$50 for the four concerts in the new series.
