Jon Kimura Parker: Fantasies and Beyond
IMPORTANT: Venue Change for our October 4th “Jon Kimura Parker: Fantasies and Beyond” Salon Concert
The October 4th OICMF Salon Concert is moved from the Music Room at Rosario Resort to the Main Stage at Orcas Center, and begins at 5:00 p.m. as before.
We have just been informed by Rosario Resort that a structural engineer has advised Rosario to close off the Music Room out of an abundance of caution, due to some cracks suddenly appearing in the Music Room ceiling, until the engineers have implemented a fix.
While we will miss the intimate ambience of Rosario’s Music Room, we know you will enjoy watching the concert in Orcas Center’s new blue seats!
A few notes and reminders:
- The doors will open at 4:30.
- Seating is assigned and socially distanced. You will receive your seating assignment at the door with your concert program.
- Masks are required inside the building at all times.
- Please remember to bring your official Covid-19 vaccine record (clear photos of the entire front and back of the card on your smart phone are OK).
We are grateful to Orcas Center for accommodating this last-minute change of venue.
The evening’s program, Jon Kimura Parker: Fantasies and Beyond, weaves two very different Fantasies among works by W. A. Mozart, Maurice Ravel, Franz Schubert, John Adams, and William Hirtz.
Husband of OICMF founder and Artistic Director Aloysia Friedmann, Jon Kimura “Jackie” Parker is the Festival’s Artistic Advisor. He is on the faculty at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University and is a veteran of international concert stages, performing concertos with the world’s most esteemed orchestras. He is the Artistic Director for the Honens International Piano Competition and was recently named Creative Partner for the Minnesota Orchestra’s Summer at Orchestra Hall series. Born and raised in Canada, Jackie studied at the Vancouver Academy of Music and the University of British Columbia, the Banff Centre, and The Juilliard School. He has been appointed an Officer of The Order of Canada and has received Honorary Doctorates from the University of British Columbia and the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.
For the safety and comfort of all, the following protocols will be in place:
- Attendees must show proof of vaccination upon arrival
- Masks are required at all times inside the building
- Seating is assigned, limited, and distanced
- There is no intermission in this program
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no food or beverage served. The dining rooms at Rosario are closed this evening, but the concert will end by 6:30, so why not make a 7:00 or later reservation at one of Orcas Island’s other fine restaurants!
