St. Mary’s hosts pianist Marco Grieco

Oak Bay Music brings the celebrated Italian pianist to St. Mary's Church

Italian pianist Marco Grieco performs tonight (Friday) at St. Mary’s Church.

St. Mary’s Church will fill with the music of Marco Grieco tonight (Friday, Oct. 14) when Oak Bay Music hosts the award-winning Italian pianist.

Grieco regularly travels to share his musical talent with audiences in Europe, South Africa, China and Indonesia, as well as the U.S. and Canada.

Here in Oak Bay he presents a full piano recital with extraordinary works by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt.

“Grieco’s program will dazzle you from the tumultuous anguish of Beethoven’s Tempest Sonata to the mischievousness of Liszt’s Mephisto Waltz,” says Victoria pianist Matty Poon, who hosts the event.

“Prepare for an evening of technical virtuosity balanced by humour and drama.”

The concert begins at 7 p.m. at St. Mary’s Church, 1701 Elgin Rd. Tickets are available at Ivy’s Books and online at oakbaymusic.ca
