Susanne Ruberg-Gordon

The Community Arts Council of Prince George & District and Trinity United Church are excited to announce that on December 1, Juno-nominated Land’s End Ensemble will be stepping onto the stage of the Knox Performance Centre to bring our community the best of contemporary classical chamber works.

Land’s End Ensemble, hailing from Calgary, represents the pinnacle of Canada’s classical musical talent. Comprising Maria van der Sloot on violin, Beth Root Sandvoss on cello, and Susanne Ruberg-Gordon on piano, this ensemble has earned accolades for its commitment to presenting audiences with innovative compositions by Canadian and international composers.

Bringing Land’s End Ensemble to Prince George reaffirms the CAC’s dedication to providing Prince George residents and visitors with unparalleled access to the finest musical experiences. The event highlights Prince George’s status as a cultural hub committed to showcasing world-class artists and fostering a deep appreciation for classical music.

In addition to the performance, the ensemble will conduct Masterclasses in partnership with the Prince George Conservatory of Music aimed at nurturing local talent and enriching the musical landscape of Prince George. These classes will offer aspiring musicians a unique opportunity to receive personalized guidance and insights from these acclaimed performers.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Land’s End Ensemble to Prince George, not only for their high-caliber performance but also for the invaluable educational opportunity provided through their masterclasses,” says performing arts manager Shelby Richardson. “This event represents our commitment to nurturing local audiences, and fostering a love for classical music within our community.”
