This season starts on Sunday, Oct. 25, with Ensemble Caprice.

  • Oct. 7, 2015 11:00 a.m.

This season starts on Sunday, Oct. 25, with Ensemble Caprice. A baroque ensemble which performs on period instruments, Ensemble Caprice was founded by acclaimed recorder soloist Matthias Maute and has become known for its innovative and adventuresome approach to an increasingly musical repertoire.

The second concert is on Sunday, Jan. 10. with Galena Trio.   The trio shares a contagious passion for the art of chamber music.  Formed in the summer of 2011 by cellist Johanne Perron, pianist Susanne Ruberg-Gordon and clarinetist Nicola Everton while on faculty at the Valhalla Summer School of Music. Although all three artists are individually busy professional performers and educators, their joint musicianship is recognized by their warm, intelligent and passionate performances.

Our third concert is the return of Blackthorn, on Saturday, March 5. Blackthorn,  a Celtic band that saw its first inception back in 1989 when a small group of expats found a common interest in a music that wasn’t all that common in Vancouver at the time.  Since then the group has travelled a long road through the streets of traditional and not-so-traditional Celtic music. Blackthorn’s extensive repertoire celebrates the traditional music of Scotland and Ireland as well as folk music of English and French Canada. They can rip up a reel, bounce along with a jig, pull your heart strings with a mournful ballad and have you singing along to a favourite old time tune.

The fourth concert is on Sunday, April 3.  Ensemble Vivant.  Since its inception almost three decades ago, Ensemble Vivant has been a pioneer in the piano chamber music world, championing exciting innovative programming ranging from Classical to Latin, and other Jazz styles. The group’s rich genre diversity, depth of artistry, and passionate, virtuosic interpretations receive accolades internationally.

The final concert of this season’s Concert Series is on Sunday, May 8th. with Sarah Hagen.

“When as a child I first understood what it meant to pull notes off a page, throw them into the air, and wonder at their magical effects, I knew that music would forever be my life:  my oxygen, my solace, my offering.” Sarah Hagen has been heard in concert halls and on airwaves throughout North America and Europe. Her interpretations have been described as “outstandingly inventive,” performed with “infinite skill”.  She is BC Touring Council’s 2015 Artist of the year!  As this is Mother’s Day, the Arts Council is planning to have a lunch or dinner, at one of the local restaurants, connected to this concert.

All the concerts start at 7:30 p.m. except for May 8, which will start at 2 p.m.  The Arrow Lakes District Arts Council also holds two Community Artists’ Concerts. They will be held on Sunday, Dec. 13 and Sunday, April 17.  These concerts are fundraisers for the Arts Council, and there is a donation jar at the door, for them. The time for these concerts is 2 p.m.

The ticket prices for the concert series are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $15 for students. Children under six are free. There is also a family rate of $50 (2+2).
