Going into it’s 6th year the February Classic, Pacific Baroque Festival welcomes Bernard Foccroulle (organ), Anne Grimm (soprano), the return of Colin Tilney (harpsichord), Elissa Poole (baroque flute), Sand Dalton (baroque obio) as well as the Pacific Baroque Orchestra and The Victoria Children’s Choir.
The festival focuses on music by three great composers of the German baroque: Dietrich Buxtehude, who J.S. Bach famously walked 300 km to hear play the organ, Georg Philip Telemann, who appears in the Guiness Book of Records as the most prolific composer of all time, and the great J.S. Bach, whose music remains timeless.
The 2010 Pacific Baroque Festival will feature a Thursday morning and evening special event at the Victoria Conservatory of Music and Christ Church Cathedral, two main concerts on the Friday and Saturday evenings at Alix Goolden Hall, and a Free Event “Choral Vespers and Abendmusik” on the Sunday afternoon at Christ Church Cathedral.
Make your plans now to join a welcome audience of Local and Visitor, Classical and Baroque music enthusiasts for this unique, acclaimed music festival event in Victoria BC.
