Estria Woodwind Quintet
Thenext AUTUMN GENIUS conference, presented by the Estria Quintet, will take place next Friday April 10th 2015. This series of six conference-concerts pays tribute to our mature geniuses and is offered free to seniors aged 60 and up. On this occasion, Dr. Jack Eby from Bishop’s University will present a conference in English on the topic of the opera OTELLO by Giuseppe Verdi. This last opera of the composer, completed at the age of 73, uses the work of the Italian librettist Arrigo Boito, who remained very faithful to the original text by Shakespeare. The presentation will be accompanied by chosen selections from the opera on DVD.
The first presentation will take place at 11 a.m. at UU Estrie church in North Hatley (201 Main Street) and will be followed by a light lunch. The second presentation will be given at 3 pm at the Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre in Lennoxville (9 Speid Street) and will be followed by an afternoon tea. Reservations are mandatory as places are very limited. Reservations with Pauline Farrugia at 819-842-1072 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
