My preview of Trio Frontenac is online

My preview of this Saturday’s concert of the Regina Symphony Orchestra, featuring Trio Frontenac, is in today’s LeaderPost.

It begins:

Trio Frontenac, featured in Saturday’s Regina Symphony Orchestra Mosaic Masterworks concert at the Conexus Arts Centre, may be based in Quebec City, but it’s definitely got Regina roots.

To begin with, violinist Darren Lowe and cellist Blair Lofgren, now concertmaster and principal cello of the Orchestre symphonique de Quebec, respectively, are former members of the RSO (Lowe was RSO concertmaster during 1975-1976, while Lofgren played with the RSO during the 1990s.)

And the third member of the trio, Lowe’s wife, pianist Suzanne Beaubien, has been a guest performer with the RSO and other local musical organizations.

Not only that, Lowe has two siblings who still play with the RSO, principal cello Cameron Lowe and cellist Heather Lowe-Conley, and both of his parents, Donna and Elman, were members of the first violin section of the RSO in the 1960s.
