Canada’s celebrated Gryphon Trio is making a special trip down to Orcas on Sunday, Oct. 20 to present a Salon Concert for the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival. The concert will take place at 6 p.m. in a Deer Harbor home.
The Trio, consisting of violinist Annalee Patipatanakoon, cellist Roman Borys and pianist Jamie Parker, are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. They are two time winners of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences JUNO Award, and were recently honored as the 2013 winner of the Walter Carsen Prize for Excellence in the Performing Arts. Presented by the Canada Council for the Arts, this prize recognizes the highest level of artistic excellence and distinguished career achievement by Canadian artists.
According to the committee, “Stability is the bedrock of these three exceptional musicians who think, breathe and act as one. Theirs is a powerful and majestic sound, regardless of musical genre.”
The Salon Concert will be accompanied by hors d’oeuvres and Thurston Wolfe wine. Tickets are $75. Seating is limited.
