Stéphane Tétreault, cello, and Marie-Ève Scarfone, piano, make music beyond their years. Hailing from Montreal, they recently released their album Haydn, Schubert and Brahms garnering Gramophone Magazine’s ‘Critic’s Choice 2016’.
With an immense list of accolades, Stéphane has a reputation for “pure, lyrical, unadulterated playing of the highest order…, and is matched impeccably by his duo partner, Marie-Ève Scarfone” (Gramophone, 2016). Marie-Ève has performed throughout North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and is known for her work with Opéra de Montréal and Opéra de Québec.
Together, Stéphane and Marie-Ève “form an impressive duo, pianist-virtuoso and inspired cellist who display a perfect fit, ease of execution and total complicity on stage” (Jacques Hétu). They will be continuing their high-calibre performance streak with a program of Beethoven, Schumann, Dompierre and more.

After three years of playing to packed houses in theatres across the Island The Four Tellers return to Victoria with their latest storytelling show called
The Last Laugh.
As in previous years the show is comprised, for the most part, of four friends and master-storytellers, Denny King, Gary Evans, Alan Buchanan and David Weale, sitting around a table swapping stories of the Island that invariably have the audience roaring with laughter, or sometimes, brushing aside a tear.
Also, woven into the storytelling are the sparkling musical arrangements of Rachael Beck and Bennett Buell.
The unique charm of the Tellers is the spontaneous, unscripted quality of the show which allows the audience to feel they are right there, in the kitchen, as the stories roll out, one drawing the next, like tissues out of a box.
As one reviewer, Gordon Cobb, wrote: “Between the hoots and the hollers and the almost tears, there is the feeling in the theatre of being fully human. And fully alive. Catch it while you can.”
