Violinist Sadie Fields returns to Guelph from Belgium to join friend/pianist Ken Gee for another Musicfest ENCORE recital. But this one is going to be very special indeed.

The Roaring 20s was a decade of incredible energy and creativity around the world, particularly in Paris as well as North America. Like now, it was an amazing comeback from the great influenza pandemic of 1918 with Jazz having big influence on “Classical” music. This program was created by Sadie and her excitement and love for the music of the 1920s.

Canadian/British (and Brussels-based) violinist Sadie Fields performs throughout Europe, the UK and Canada. She is the founding violinist of the Festival Trio, and the Belgium-based Flash Ensemble, a flexible chamber ensemble with a string trio as its core, and currently performs with the New European Ensemble (Netherlands) and many other ensembles in Europe.

Ken Gee is well known to the music community in Southwestern Ontario and Hamilton region. He now lives in Guelph and is the founder and artistic director of Guelph Musicfest, an annual music festival that will return for its 18th season at the GYMC on May 24, 2024.

Buy a glass of wine and chat with the artists after the concert!

This special concert will be a LCBO-licensed event, only at the Guelph Youth Music Centre. Wine and beer (and non-alcoholic beverages; apologies that we won’t have “sparkling” wine available) will be available for sale at the “Speak Easy” Bar (proceeds in benefit of the GYMC). You can bring your drink into the Recital Hall during the concert. "Meet the artists” reception after the concert.

Dressing up is encouraged (but not required). This will be an amazing Guelph Musicfest event. Don’t miss it!
