The program includes music by Carl Maria von Weber, Philip Glass and the beautiful clarinet quintet by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as heard in the famous love scene from the movie Out of Africa.

Clarinetist Nicola Everton has recently become a resident of the Kootenays after spending over 20 years as a member of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

Nicola has also enjoyed performing chamber music concerts and teaching numerous students as a private teacher and as a member of the Vancouver Academy of Music faculty.

She has performed and taught in summer festivals in Sun Valley, Idaho and at the University of British Columbia.

La Cafamour String Quartet, based in the West Kootenay, formed in 2008 and includes members Jeff Faragher, cello, Alexis More, viola both from Nelson and Rossland local Carolyn Cameron on violin.
