Midsummer Moon


Date: Tuesday, June 6, 2023  |  Time: 12:00 pm

Streamed live on the Agassiz Website

Following our summer festival theme, “Midsummer Moon” juxtaposes two traditional German works by Robert Schumann from the early 1800s, with two evocative pieces by the highly-respected early 20th century British composer, Rebecca Clarke. Carissa Klopoushak, a Canadian violinist with Ukrainian roots, is known for her artistic curiosity, creativity, and versatility. She pairs up with the gifted young pianist, Carson Becke, to offer us an online concert from Luskville, Quebec.
