Anne and Hugh McLean
Put together the only pipe organ on Salt Spring Island, a piano, Anne and Hugh McLean, with the superb
acoustics of All Saints' Church and you have a sure-fire recipe for fabulous music.
Taking time from their holiday home on Galiano Island, these two internationally acclaimed musicians will
also be gracing the Music and Munch noon-hour recital stage on Wednesday, July 31. (See below for A Musical
Love Story by Anne McLean.) The programme will consist of selections of works for piano, such as Grieg's
Norwegian Dances and Debussy's Jardin Sous La Pluie, and for organ, including chorales by Brahms, two canons
by Schumann as well as music from British Columbia.
Anne McLean received her musical training in Canada and Switzerland and holds Bachelor's and Master's
degrees from the university of Calgary and Western Ontario, the National Concert Artist Diploma from
Switzerland, and received the Degree of Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of British Columbia.
Hugh McLean was born in Winnipeg and received his early musical education there. He won the Organ
Scholarship to King's College, Cambridge, in 1951 and he made his debut in 1955 performing with Sir Adrian
Boult and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Command performance of that year. Hugh McL4ean's
prestigious career as organist, choirmaster, pianist, harpsichordist, administrator, teacher and musicologist
has earned him musical honours and much acclaim.
Wednesday's musical feast promises to be a highlight of the summer series with free music beginning at
12:10 pm at All Saints' By-The-Sea followed by an optional lunch for $4.75.
