When composer and pianist Louise Eldridge performed her first recital for Music and Munch last year, the
audience was delighted by her enthusiastic and vivacious presence. On Wednesday July 23rd, Louise returns to offer
more musical pleasures!
Her love of music and her career as a musician began in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia where she studied classical piano
from the age of six. As a teenager she began composing her own music. She currently resides in Victoria continuing
to lead a busy musical life.
Twice she accompanied the Canadian Youth Ambassadors peace choir to the Soviet Union during the Cold War. She
co-wrote a musical for the students of Brentwood College and most recently composed and directed a new musical
"Pride and Prejudice" for Claremont High School.
Louise teaches piano at Victor Brodeur French School in Esquimalt and continues to be a featured pianist in a
number of Victoria's hotels.
Wednesday's recital has all the makings of an event filled with Eldridge's inimitable style. The eclectic
programme will contain well known light classics as well as some of her own moving compositions.
Free music begins at All Saints' church at 12.10pm, followed by a delicious optional lunch for $5.50.
