The Slocan Lake Gallery Society is hosting THE CELLAR NOTES DUO featuring Jeff Faragher on cello, and Alex Nichol on double bass. The Duo will be presenting a musical offering spanning four centuries and six cultures on Wednesday- April 29th at 7:30 pm at Memorial Hall in Silverton. Admission by donation. Supported by BCAC.
Jeff Faragher holds a Master Degree in Music Performance from McGill University and has pursued supplementary studies between academic years with such internationally renowned cellists as Janos Starker, Aldo Parisot and YoYo Ma. Jeff is a prodigious talent with an innovative spirit. Rather than a career in a major orchestra, Jeff has chosen a life in the Kootenays where he is free to explore the full range of musical possibilities. These include the position of Music Director of The Symphony of the Kootenays.
Alex Nichol spent 25 years as an orchestral musician with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Halle Orchestra of Manchester, and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra before moving to the Okanagan where he and his wife established Nichol Vineyard Winery. With retirement in 2006, his focus has returned to music-making.
