Grammy award nominee Pablo Diemecke is coming to Nakusp for a concert this weekend to be held at the Robertson Memorial United Church. Diemecke won the Grammy Award for the Carlos Chavez Violin Concerto, under “Best Classical Album” in 2002 and was nominated for the Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 1 in 1994. He is the head of a foursome called the Diemahler String Quartet.
After 20 years of service as concertmaster of the Victoria Symphony, Diemecke teams up with esteemed musicians Larry Skaggs, Liz Massi and violinist Martine DenBok, from Silverton.
Having studied with the Lafayette String Quartet in Victoria, B.C., DenBok currently teaches violin and viola throughout the Kootenays, plays with the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, and lives in Silverton.
The group has been described as “passionate and amazing” by local music instructor Nancy Bertoia. The concert begins at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are $15, available at the door.
