May 7 2003 Michael Powell was to have performed on May 7, but unfortunately, could not attend. Instead there was a performance by Barry Valentine on the organ.

All Music and Munch artists bring a personal charm and dedication to their performances, adding to the uniqueness of each recital. One such dedicated musician is pianist Michael Powell, who is the featured guest on Wednesday, May 7 2003.

Michael Powell was introduced to the piano at the age of four by his grandmother when he first arrived on the island in 1979. He began formal studies with Pat Duke when he was six, and later with Chris Kodaly, who helped him attain his Grade 10 Piano Certificate.

Having now completed the last of his theory prerequisites for the ARCT (Associateship of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto) performance exam, he intends to carry on and acquire the much sought ARCT certificate.

Music Makers first discovered Michael when he made his debut on the scene in 2001 as an accompanist to a popular vocal quartet which regularly performs at Music and Munch. Delighted by his skill, they invited him to play a solo recital last year and again this season.

According to Music Makers, "his unassuming and earnest manner adds a special touch to his handling of a mostly classical repertoire." Patrons on Wednesday will be treated to sonatas by Mozart, Beethoven and the lovely Debussy Suite Bergamasque.

  • Mozart Sonata in C Major, KV 279
  • Mozart Sonata in C Major, KV 545
  • Beethoven Sonata in F Major Op. 10, No.2
  • Debussy Suite Bergamasque

Free music begins at 12:10 pm followed by an optional an delicious lunch for $5.50, all in the wonderful ambiance of the All Saints Church in Ganges.
