Cecilia Concerts is delighted to present twelve-year-old clarinetist Shinie Wagaarachchi in her Canadian recital debut.
This past April, Shinie (pronounced shai · nee) won first prize in her age group at the Mooc Cup Asian International Youth Clarinet Competition. In May, she placed first in the junior woodwind category of the New Brunswick Music Festival and followed that up in July with the second prize in clarinet at the 2021 Stockholm International Music Competition.
A student of the Sistema New Brunswick program, Wagaarachchi is a member of the Moncton Youth Orchestra as well as the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra. She was also named one of CBC Music’s “30 Hot Classical Musicians Under 30” this year.
For this recital, Wagaarachchi performs Robert Schumann’s romantic Fantasiestucke, Op. 73, Carl Maria von Weber’s Concertino, Op. 26, and Franz Krommer’s 1803 classical jewel Clarinet Concerto, Op. 36. The clarinetist will be accompanied by pianist James Coghlin. The approximate concert length is one hour.
Funds raised through this pay-what-you-can event support the Bravura Nova Scotia-Cecilia Concerts Scholarship, which is awarded annually to a student aged fifteen or older who shows exceptional promise in an area of music performance. Bravura Nova Scotia is a local charity supporting excellence in the performing arts through prizes and scholarships to music students.
