Gene Ramsbottom received the North Shore's FANS 2015 Distinguished Artist designation for being recognized as Canada's most recorded classical clarinetist. He was appointed as founding principal clarinetist of the Vancouver Opera Orchestra by Richard Bonynge and performed in that role for twenty seasons until 1996. Mr. Ramsbottom was also the principal clarinetist since 1984 with the C.B.C. Radio Orchestra, Canada's internationally renowned recording national broadcast orchestra. Prior to 1984 he was the CBC Vancouver Orchestra's second and bass clarinetist for nine years. He has been the principal clarinetist and a soloist with the Carmel Bach Festival Orchestra, California, during various summer festival seasons. He has concertized in Canada, England, Ireland, the United States, Israel, Europe and Asia. Of the many concert series he created the longest running one has been the Out For Lunch Friday noon hour concert series at the Vancouver Art Gallery which he created in 1986 as a Vancouver Centenary project. Currently he is the principal and solo clarinetist of the West Coast Symphony and the Summer Music on the Shannon (Ireland) Festival. Last August he performed in Shanghai with Vancouver String Quartet cellist Bo Peng in the Hong Mei Music Festival and looks forward to returning there to further concertize as an international chamber musician representing Canada.

Manti Poon, viola, furthered his studies in viola performance at UBC after moving to Vancouver. He has become a much sought after musician in British Columbia as a soloist, orchestral and chamber musician. Apart from holding the position of principal viola with the Vancouver Island Symphony he also performed with most local orchestras as well as the renowned CBC Radio Orchestra. He is a founding member of the Vancouver String Quartet. He performs on a fine viola by Marino Capicchioni and a rare Sartory bow on loan to him by Poesis Fine Instruments and Bows.

Richard Epp is a very well-known Vancouver-based pianist, accompanist, vocal coach, conductor and consummate chamber musician. He is currently Music Director of the Opera Workshop at UBC for whom he has conducted Hansel & Gretel, The Merry Widow, The Magic Flute and Weisse Rose by Udo Zimmerman among many others. He was pianist for the Resident artists programme at the Vancouver Opera. Mr. Epp has toured Canada, the United States, China and Europe as a piano accompanist for singers, as a conductor and as a chamber musician. He has appeared frequently in CBC Radio broadcast recitals. Mr. Epp has studied conducting with Tsung Yeh, Kirk Trevor and Johannes Schlaefle and holds a Master's Degree in Piano Accompanying from the University of Southern California. He has also participated in master classes given by such internationally known musicians as Dalton Baldwin, Graham Johnson, Martin Katz, Siegfried Jerusalem, Nico Castel, Rudolph Jansen and Elly Ameling. Mr. Epp has premiered numerous works by Canadian composers and is also active as a piano teacher and adjudicator. A frequent performer in the Czech Republic he also adjudicates at an international voice festival in Beijing. This concert marks his 78th concert appearance in the Out for Lunch concert series.
