The Bank Theatre Proudly Presents Dazzling Duos & Trios
The Bank Theatre Proudly Presents Dazzling Duos & Trios

The Bank Theatre is pleased to present  classical concert featuring a variety of duets and trios for 2 flutes, piano, and organ, culminating in an abridged version of the well loved "Mennonite Piano Concerto" by Victor Davies. on Sunday, October 1 at 3pm. Performing artists are Helen Brown, Linda Regehr, Natalie Dorion and Jonathan Bayley. The concert will take place OFFSITE at the Knox Presbyterian Church, 58 Erie St. S. in Leamington.

Linda Regehr began piano lessons at age 10 and as a teenager accompanied the
church senior choir.  She joined Helen Law Singers and Ann Dresser as a pianist and then singer.  During the winter months, she played keyboard for the UMEI Alumni Players' musicals, taught piano lessons, and practiced with a children's choir.  She has been and still is a church organist and pianist since her teenage years.  Linda joined the Windsor Symphony Chorus for a time and plays piano or organ for weddings and funerals.  She now enjoys playing piano at Hospice and singing with the Soli Deo Gloria Singers.  She says "It is fun when gathered in groups to sing prayerfully in beautiful
harmony and with enthusiasm. The sound rises to the heavens."

Dr. Bayley is a Professor of music education and former Acting Director of the Joint Ph.D. program at the University of Windsor.  He has been the Director of the School of Music and Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, Research and Continuing Education in the Faculty of Education.  He has taught at the secondary school level and was also a flute instructor at Alberta College Conservatory of Music for 15 years.

He studied flute with Jeanne Baxtresser (principal flute New York Philharmonic), Francis Blaisdell (Stanford University), and Robert Aitken.

Dr. Bayley has published numerous articles in various journals (Canadian Winds, Canadian Musical Educator, Journal of Historical Research in Music Education, and update: Applications of Research in Music Education) and published several arrangements and original works for flute.  Two of his recordings (with Andrew Creaghan), Music for Flute and Guitar and Between the Silence, have received international airplay.  he has premiered numerous works for flute, and most recently commissioned and premiered (with organist David Palmer) a Sonata for Flute and Organ by the American composer  Matt Doran.

Classically trained flutist Natalie Dorion has an extra challenge learning new music, as she is blind. " I love the sound of the flute. To be honest, I love everything about it.  The repertoire for the flute is amazing!!  It seems to suit my energetic happy character. When I'm performing it feels like I'm flying!!  Whatever I play, my soul sings through the music. It reflects my mood of sadness or happiness.  The flute allows me to sing through it.  I can pour my soul into it. When I can play the flute, my days are complete.  There is a void in the day when I don't practice.  I worship and pray to God through the flute.
Natalie was 11 years old when she heard the flute in a music appreciation class and instantly fell in love. She reflects " It is different being a blind musician rather than a sighted musician.  When I first started, my teacher had to physically place my fingers on the keys to show me which notes they were.  Now I have someone play my flute repertoire on tape slowly for me and I learn everything by ear and memorize it." She has a flute performance diploma from the Cambrian College in Sudbury ON, and a bachelor in music from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, ON.

Well known pianist Helen Brown who accompanies numerous choirs, says " I enjoy the exercise of working at a piece and watching it get better and better all the time.  A performance is a carrot to get me to practice. To learn to play a difficult piece well is a huge satisfaction for me. I love the feeling of being "one" with the audience in creating beautiful music."
Helen started taking piano lessons at age 6 with her Dad or Mom sitting at her side making her practice for 1/2 hr every day.  Two years later she was interested enough to practice on her own since she was getting recognition at school. Helen earned her degree of ARCT from the Ursuline Sisters in Windsor.

Dazzling Duos & Trios will charm and delight you with a rich array of classical music.  Tickets are $15 per person or $10 for groups of 10 seniors age 65 and over. The Knox Presbyterian Church is accessible and has ample parking.
