Jack Glatzer, born in Dallas, Texas, USA, now residing in Portugal, began the study of the violin at the age of five. He debuted at age 13 as soloist with the Dallas Symphony and has played with major symphonies around the world and on every continent in over 40 countries. He is considered “the Ambassador of the Violin”, holding workshops and seminars for violinists of all ages. Glatzer’s particular interest is the unaccompanied repertoire of the violin and he is celebrated for his interpretation of the works of Paganini, Locatelli, Bach, Bartók, Ysaye and Stravinsky. He is one of the very few violinists to perform all 24 Caprices of Paganini in one concert.
Ingrid Mapson, a resident of 100 Mile House, British Columbia, has “a voice with rich, round, warm and honeyed color and is very much at home in a variety of styles” (Clyde Mitchell, Lion’s Gate Sinfonia). Ingrid appears regularly on concert stages as a soloist, including with the Prince George Symphony, Kamloops Symphony, Vancouver Bach’s Choir, Lion’s Gate Sinfonia of Vancouver, Pacific Spirit Choir, Chamber Musicians of Kamloops, and the Deep Cove Big Band. The Prince George Symphony Press Release referred to Ingrid as “a hidden jewel in the Cariboo”.
Anthony Lau, a.k.a. Mr. Harmonica, born in Hong Kong, started to play the chromatic harmonica at the age of 10. He has devoted his life to elevate this instrument to the concert stage. Because of his invention of the unique vibrato and mellow tone to the harmonica, “Anthony Lau Tone” is renowned by the harmonica world in Asia, which has a million harmonica players. He usually performs in Asia and North America and was a soloist at the VANOC Olympic Winter Games in 2010.
Rhiannon Jones’ love of music started in elementary school in England. The Jones family immigrated to Canada and her dedication to playing the flute deepened under the guidance of Christine Moore, principle flautist of the Okanagan Symphony. Rhiannon won gold in 6 consecutive years in the Kiwanis Music Festival. She is now the principle flautist of the Okanagan Youth Symphony
