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.

The Music Makers of the Anglican Parish will also present A Musical Love Story – a lecture / recital given by pianist Ann McLean.
