Posted 16 April 2012
Saturday evening, 14 April 2012, the Summerlea Spring Concert featured pianist Chad Heltzel and special guest cellist Noémie Raymond-Friset in an evening of enthralling chamber music.

Chad Heltzel, a native of Portland, Oregon, received his bachelor degree in piano from the Glenn Gould School in Toronto, studying with renowned American pianist John Perry. He received his graduate performanc degree with Marc Durand at l'Université de Montréal, and has pursued a varied career as a recitalist, conductor and university teacher.

Noémie Raymond-Friset started on the violin at age 4 and became enamoured of the cello at age 7. At age 14 she performed as soloist with orchestra. Since then, she has performed many times with orchestra, including once with the CNA for Canada Day with Pinkas Zinkermann, and another in a children's concert playing a portion of Dvorak's concerto.
