Watch Those Hands

Meet Ariel Barnes, the Principal Cellist in the Vancouver Opera Orchestra. Doing what he does best, he will be wowing audience and critics at the Jeunesses Musicales Ontario's Twilight Series concert on April 7 in Toronto.

Accompanied by Bryan Wagorn on piano, the musicians will be performing De Falla's Suite Popular Espanola, Bartok's Roumanian Folk Dances, Canadian composer's Milton Barnes's La Rosa Variations and Schumann's Fünf Stück im Volkston, Op. 102, A minor.

The Twilight Series has been successful in introducing classical and chamber music to newbies in a non-intimidating setting, or as they call it, a "casual smart" setting.

If you're in the Toronto area April 7, here are the deets:
