Music in the morning

Classical Coffee Concert series continues at the Surrey Arts Centre with guest violinist Joan Blackman.

Acclaimed pianist Sarah Hagen returns to the Surrey Arts Centre next week, with guest violinist Joan Blackman.

Hagan continues her Classical Coffee Concert series for five remaining Thursdays through March 2014. The morning events invite guests for a casual and comfortable morning of music. Coffee and pastries are served beginning at 9:30 a.m. and the 75-minute concert begins at 10:30 a.m. in the studio theatre.

Hagan has been heard in concert halls and on the airwaves throughout North America and Europe, and last season, performed twice at Carnegie Hall in New York.

Blackman is associate concertmaster of the Vancouver Symphony, is frequently heard on CBC Radio and is artistic director of Vancouver’s Vetta Chamber Music and Recital Society.

At the Nov. 7 concert, Hagan and Blackman will perform sonatas by Beethoven, Debussy and Mozart.

The musicians are usually available for a chat after the performance.

Tickets are $25, available at tickets.surrey.ca or by calling 604-501-5566. Receive a $5 discount per ticket when purchasing three or more concerts.
