Live!@WestPlains presents...
in the warm acoustics of the West Plains Church Sanctuary

Corey Gemmell, violinist, with Benjamin Smith, pianist

From a life dedicated to the passionate pursuit of music, Corey Gemmell has built a remarkable career as a highly sought-after soloist and concertmaster for orchestras across Greater Toronto and Hamilton. This year marks his 25th season as concertmaster of the Burlington Symphony Orchestra, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Gemmell has selected some of his favourite repertoire for a rare (as he is usually too busy performing with orchestras) solo violin performance in collaboration with friend and impeccable pianist, Benjamin Smith. Together, they will bring to life the music of Bach, Mozart, Fauré, and Sarasate. Revel in the depths of inspiration!
