Unfortunately, our April and June concerts had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We have re-scheduled these two concerts to April and June of 2021, and hope that we will be able to perform these concerts live to our loyal Salt Spring audiences.
Despite this, we are determined to keep our members engaged in music making, and our audiences engaged in music listening! To this end, we are working on an exciting project which will kick off our new season in September in a unique way. We will professionally video & broadcast two on-line performances, showcasing our singers and instrumentalists in small chamber music settings. Chamber music is ideally suited to our current situation as small vocal ensembles with instrumental accompaniment are very easily socially distanced. We intend to combine music that has immediate audience appeal with stunning visual imagery from around Salt Spring Island, making us both a musical and tourism ambassador for the Gulf Islands! We are preparing two virtual concerts, which will be filmed at locations on Salt Spring Island, and broadcast in November and December 2020. While repertoire is still being determined, our November concert will feature baroque music from the the 17th century, and our December concert will have a seasonal theme. Stay tuned for more details!
