The string faculty at the School of Music will be performing a breathtaking concert on February 4th as part of the Music at Tabaret series. This opportunity to hear members of our stellar string faculty, including members of the National Art Centre Orchestra, is an experience not to be missed!

Every year, the Music at Tabaret series features one concert which showcases the string faculty performing chamber works with distinctive refinement and sensitivity. The level of artistry is captivating and inspiring  especially for students as they observe their teachers performing on stage.

Sharing the stage with his teacher Paul Marleyn, cellist Ethan Allers will have the opportunity to perform in Strauss’ Metamorphosen. In this way, the concert demonstrates the teaching faculty’s dedication and commitment to supporting the next generation of classical musicians and attests to the high level of artistry within the student body. 

Since 1969, the University of Ottawa’s School of Music has contributed to the musical life of the national capital by presenting concerts by professors and guest artists. Over the years, seminal figures of the musical world, such as Olivier Messiaen and Pierre Boulez, have appeared on the Tabaret Hall stage, along with faculty members who pursue national and international careers as performers. Other concerts in the Music at Tabaret series this season included The Music of John Gordon Armstrong and Ballets Russes with David Jalbert and Wonny Song, and the upcoming Among Friends featuring Kimball Sykes, clarinet, Paul Marleyn, cello and Andrew Tunis, piano.

Tickets for the Shadow and Light concert can be purchased at or at the door.
