Kinsroom, Delta Community Music School.
Imagine! is a concert of Baroque music that celebrates fantasy and creativity. The program includes musical animal caricatures, a 300 year old high school graduation present, and a cantata marvelous enough to capture the imagination of Pluto, god of the underworld. Audience members will have a chance to join the creative fun, inventing stories to accompany one of the musical selections. Curious listeners of all ages are most welcome to attend. Tickets are available for $20/$10 for students.
The concert performers all specialize in performing early music. Soprano, Jane Long has a Master’s Degree from Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, England. She is now based in Vancouver, and performs with Early Music Vancouver, musica intima, and others. Arthur Neele plays the Baroque violin. He is currently a member of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra and regularly appears with Early Music Vancouver’s Festival Orchestra and Cantata Players. Cellist, Marina Hasselberg’s musical interests extend from Baroque music on historical instruments to newly commissioned works that she performs with her group, the NOVO Ensemble. Christina Hutten has studied and performed on the organ and harpsichord in North American and Europe. She is now studying musicology at the University of British Columbia.
