Langley Community Music School welcomes host of new instructors

Langley Community Music School welcomes some of the world’s best musicians and educators to its faculty in 2015.

The lineup includes famed pianist Henri-Paul Sicsic, Borealis String Quartet violinist/violist, Nikita Pogrebnoy, violinist Will Chen, violinist Peter Ing, and cellist Marcus Jeehon Kim.

“Langley Community Music School has achieved significant prominence in the field of music education,” said LCMS principal Susan Magnusson.

“I am thrilled to announce that our school has been able to attract such highly-acclaimed and experienced faculty teachers to join our faculty.”

Canadian pianist Sicsic is a concerto soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. He has performed with symphony orchestras and other musical festivals throughout Canada, the United States, France, Spain, Russia, Finland, and Israel.  Learn more about Sicsic at www.henripaulsicsic.com. And plan to attend LCMS’s special welcoming masterclass at 2:30 p.m. during LCMS’s upcoming Open House on Saturday May 9, 2015. According to the Vancouver Sun, Sicsic “is not to be missed.”

Russian-Born Pogrebnoy has performed across Europe, Mexico, Central and North America, and the USSR, in front of such dignitaries as the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu.

Ing is an accomplished Canadian performer and educator who has performed around the world from International Music Festivals in North America and Europe to the Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra and Vancouver Island Symphony Orchestra.

From studying violin in Surrey from the age of six to completing his undergraduate studies at University of Victoria and a Master’s degree in Germany, Chen has remained tops in his class, receiving several scholarships and graduating with honours. Kim, a cellist, repeats a turn as an educator at Langley Community Music School, having taught at the school in 2008.
