This Friday violinist Alexandre Turmel is giving a concert with George Harris on flute. The program begins with a Mozart flute concerto and a Mozart violin concerto. The second half includes a new double concerto for flute and violin by George Harris.

Alexandre was taught by Christian Vachon for two years at the Conservatoire de musique in Gatineau, Quebec and has continued to study at the Conservatoire, now with Alexandre Da Costa. He has been a member of the Ottawa Youth Orchestra for three years and last season was Concertmaster of the orchestra. He has also performed with the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra, the Gatineau Symphony Orchestra and the Thirteen String Ensemble.

Alexandre performs on a violin I made in 2001, which he purchased this year. The violin is based on Stradivari, which was my standard model until 2010.
