Join the Centre for Musical Arts in Memorial Hall on Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 7:30 p.m. as it presents Rediscovering Reicha.

For the first time in North America, a rediscovered work by romantic composer Antoine Reicha (1770-1836) intended to by performed by two brothers on the recently invented 13 keyed clarinets in Bb and A in 1810. A feat for the time, and until now a unique work. A young composer from Montreal, Alexandre David, accepted the challenge to write a second work for the same sextet, based this time on the ancient poetic form of the rondel, popular between the XIV and XVI centuries and among poets of late XIX century. Tickets are available at the door or in advance at the Centre for Musical Arts, Memorial Hall room 22A. Tickets: Adults- $30 Seniors- $25 Students- $10
