Wondrous Designs: Works for Violin and Piano, and Floral Art, May 17, 2009

On Sunday afternoon, May 17, violinist Nancy Dahn and pianist Timothy Steeves enthralled an audience at Gustin House with music by Beethoven and R. Murray Schafer, as well as arrangements by Clifford Crawley. The duo musicians are both on the music faculty of Memorial University, St. John’s, NL.

Master florist Fred Chlan created three wonderful pieces as he spoke about his art, drawing on his international study and his experience as an instructor and juror of floral design. Mr. Chlan’s shop, Flowers by Fred, has graciously contributed presentation bouquets for many of our concert artists.

This springtime program of music and floral art celebrated the birth anniversary of Lyell Gustin (b. May 31, 1895), and paid special tribute to Dr. Gustin’s love of visual beauty in nature and all the arts.
