Thomas Evdokimoff and Christine Yeung
On Wednesday June 16th, Music and Munch features a musical first on Salt Spring Island. Classical guitarist
Thomas Evdokimoff and flautist Christine Yeung, both of Vancouver, bring us a magical mixed programme
of light classical music for flute and guitar, peppered with some Tangos and Bossa Novas.
Thomas is no stranger to Music and Munch audiences. He has charmed many a music lover with his exquisite
playing and gentle manner not only as soloist and with the duo Kuroshio, but also in the multi faceted song, dance
and music recitals produced by members of the Anglican parish in past years.
Thomas studied guitar at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and with Michael Strutt and Alan Rinehart
in Vancouver. He has performed in numerous master classes for prominent musicians including masters of guitar,
lute baroque violin and harpsichord.
Thomas holds a Master of Arts in music theory from UBC and is currently on the faculty at the Delta Community
Music School. He has been part of several successful arts organizations in Vancouver.
Flautist Christine Yeung is playing on Salt Spring for the first time although her performing experience is
Born in Hong Kong, Christine began her studies in music at the age of 6. She graduated from UBC in 1997 with a
Bachelor of Music degree in flute. She has studied with many world renowned flautists and as a performer has won
countless awards and scholarships. She has appeared with the Vancouver Philharmonic, the Musica Chamber Choir and
has recorded for the young artists programme on CBC radio. She is on the faculty at the Delta Community Music
School and runs a very successful music studio in Richmond and Vancouver.
These two artists complement each other wonderfully, with their musical sensitivity and technical skills.
Wednesday’s recital promises to be a real treat.
