Fundraiser Duo Recital to Showcase Mother-Daughter Virtuosity

Fundraiser Duo Recital to Showcase Mother-Daughter Virtuosity

Clarinetist Jossée MacInnis and her mother, soprano Susan Dworkin, will perform together on December 18 in a duo recital that is sure to impress. The selections chosen for the concert will include classical Christmas music and baroque, romantic, and post-romantic composers including Schubert and Spohr.

Jossée MacInnis was born in Montreal but was raised in Wolfville. She was awarded scholarships to study music at Mount Alison University in New Brunswick, and then at Western University, in Ontario. Now at l’Université de Montréal, she is about to begin her doctorate in clarinet performance.

MacInnis is also founder and director of Ensemble Atlantica, a contemporary music ensemble of seven talented musicians, including Dworkin. This year, the ensemble completed a tour through Ontario and Quebec, attended a two-week professional development workshop in Montreal, and have just recorded their first CD of all original works by Canadian emerging composers. They have also been accepted to participate in an important festival in Rennes, France in the new year.

The concert will take place at the Wolfville Baptist Church on Tuesday, December 18, 7pm. The tickets are $28. The money raised from the December concert will support Jossée as she embarks on her doctoral studies, and help fund Ensemble Atlantica’s trip to Rennes. CDs (featuring Ensemble Atlantica) will be available for purchase at the concert.
