Event Notes


Beethoven Sonatas, featuring violinist Frank Ho and pianist Joachim Segger will be at the North Peace Cultural Centre on Friday, November 17th at 7:30 PM. This promises to be a relaxing evening of violin and piano showcasing the musical talents of these two accomplished musicians.

Violinist Frank Ho enjoys a career as soloist, chamber musician and teacher. A graduate of Yale University, he studied there with Sidney Harth (former concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony, New York and Los Angeles Philharmonics) and Erick Friedman (noted pupil of Jascha Heifetz). Further studies with Yfrah Neaman at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, England, led to performances on three continents and recordings for the CBC.

As a performer, Frank has performed at venues such as Royal Festival Hall (London), Merkin Hall and Alice Tully Hall (New York), and the Winspear Centre in Edmonton. He remains active locally as the concertmaster of the Concordia Symphony Orchestra and as a frequent collaborator in chamber music. Recent highlights include the complete Beethoven Violin Sonata cycle with pianist Joachim Segger.

He is currently on faculty at the MacEwan University Conservatory of Music, King’s University and Concordia University. His students have been prizewinners in local, provincial, and national competitions in Canada, and have gone on to further studies at universities and conservatories in Canada, the USA and Europe. Several of his students have performed at venues such as Carnegie Hall, and are members of professional orchestras in Canada, notably the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, the Victoria Symphony, and the Thunder Bay Symphony. Frank is also a member of the College of Examiners for the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, and was president of the Alberta String Association from 2019 to 2022.

He will be joined by his long-time collaborator, Joachim Segger, a versatile musician who regularly plays piano solo, duo and chamber recitals, as well as concertos. He has performed in various venues throughout North America, Europe and South Africa and is frequently heard on CBC local and national broadcasts. He was a semifinalist in the Gina Bachauer, CBC, Robert Casadesus, Maryland and Bach International Piano Competitions and was the winner of the prestigious Canadian Women's Club Competition in New York City that resulted in a Carnegie Recital Hall début.

Don’t miss this wonderful evening of music by the incomparable Frank Ho & Joachim Segger, November 17th at 7:30 PM at the North Peace Cultural Centre.
