Enjoy a coffee, a treat, and then the sweet sounds of the violin at the next Morning Melodies, taking place at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Nov. 4.

Hosted by pianist Sarah Hagen, Morning Melodies is a series of intimate classical music concerts taking place on select Tuesday mornings. Each event begins at 10 a.m. with coffee, tea, treats and a chance to chat with the musicians, followed by a 70-minute concert at 10:30 a.m.

This second performance of the Morning Melodies series features violinist Joan Blackman.

In addition to her role as the associate concertmaster of the Vancouver Symphony, Blackman has performed across Canada and is frequently heard in recital broadcasts on CBC Radio.

“I like to capture the intimacy of chamber music,” said Blackman. “It’s an experience that’s intimate and exciting, making connections between the different composers.”

Praised for her lyricism, precision and ravishing tone, Blackman plans to deliver a vibrant and lively morning of music.

Tickets for Blackman’s Morning Melodies concert are $33 for seniors, $35 for adults, and $18 for students. Contact the Ticket Seller box office by calling 549-SHOW (7469) or online at www.ticketseller.ca for more information.
