An Evening of Chamber Music

Guitarist James Renwick

James Renwick was born in Hamilton, Ontario and grew up with many musical opportunities. However, it was not until he 

discovered the classical guitar that he decided to pursue a formal education in music. His studies on the classical guitar began at McMaster University under Patrick Feely. After receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Music, he entered the Master’s Performance program at the University of Toronto. At U of T, he studied with Dr. Jeffrey McFadden for two years. James is continuing his 

musical education by pursuing a Doctorate of Musical Arts at the University of Toronto with Dr. McFadden.

In his doctorate, James has been studying Julian Bream and Peter Pears’ celebrated collaboration as a tenor-guitar duo. In particular, he is looking at the new works composed for the duo such as Britten’s Songs from the Chinese, Walton’s Anon in Love and lesser-known works such as James Bernard’s Shepherd’s Warning and Raymond Warren’s Pity of Love. He hopes to bring further exposure to this repertoire in the near future.

James also has a particular interest in chamber music and regularly performs with a variety of ensembles. Flutists, cellists, choirs, vocalists and violinists are just some of the collaborators with which James has worked. Most recently he has been a part of the Elysian duo – a duo that features the unique combination of trumpet and guitar

ConterTenor Richard Cunningham

Richard, a graduate of the University of Toronto, took further studies in Britain, having received scholarships from the Canada Council.  Richard has had a career as a vocal soloist, chorister, composer and conductor, and has performed across Europe and North America. He is also on the music staff of McMaster University, teaching occasional courses in vocal methods and conducting as well as private singing lessons.

Cellist Alice Kim

Toronto Cellist, Alice Kim, received her Bachelor of Music in Cello Performance at McGill University and her Master's Degree from the University of Toronto. She also holds an Artist Diploma in Cello Performance at the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal. Her principal teachers over the years include Professor Matt Haimovitz, Professor Denis Brott, and Joseph Johnson & Shauna Rolston. Ms Kim is active in the Greater Toronto Area as a collaborative musician in both chamber and orchestral music. She is regularly in high demand as a freelance musician and maintains a busy teaching schedule throughout the Greater Toronto Area. She was recently featured in a concert with the Women's Musical Club of Toronto which was broadcasted on CBC Radio, and has collaborated with contemporary dancer, Julie McLachlin and Toronto Filmmaker, Stelth Ng in a recent dance film, in partnership with Triple Pointe Media.
