Led by Kerry Stratton, Conductor
In Praise of Mentors
Pianist Thomas Torok & Friends
What a wonderful concert it was…
Honouring mentors, especially the Prime Mentors of Canada (PMC) volunteer mentors, who have contributed tremendously in the personal and academic growth of bright young people who are at risk of not developing their full potential!
The eighteen year old pianist, Thomas Torok, completely took away the breath of the audience for his awesome rendition of Chopin’s Scherzo No. 2, Op. 31 and Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No.6, S244. Equally superlative was the performance of Andrew Chan who made the harp sing so melodiously with the gentle grace and elegance of the touch of his fingers. The delightful musical programme was complemented so very well by Sharon Lee, an accomplished violinist, and the Odin Quartet.
The Prime Mentors of Canada extends its warmest appreciation to the Toronto Concert Orchestra for organizing the event and for dedicating it to mentors on Mother’s Day, invariably everyone’s first mentors, and for raising the awareness of people in the community about PMC and it’s Vision-Mission.
