Chemainus Classical Concerts announces new season

With top-notch vocalists and instrumentalists on the menu, it looks like a tasty season at St. Mike’s

Chemainus Classical Concerts has announced the 2017/18 season: nine concerts in the intimate setting of St. Michael’s Church.

The atmosphere and acoustics of the historic building, which dates back to 1891, plus the serving of a “Meet the Artist” tea afterwards, add to these events.

The organizers will present a variety of musicians and singers over the course of the season.

First up, on Oct. 22, is Stylus Fantasticus, with Paul Luchkow, Michael Jarvis, and Sam Stadlen taking you on musical flights of fancy from the 17th and 18th century. Next, on Nov. 19 is pianist Luke Welch presenting a show called Crossing Borders.

In December, it’s time for An Encore! Christmas by the talented female singers of the Encore! choir, and when January rolls around, look for David Sossa’s presentation of The Guitar Around the World.

Montreal pianist Antoine Joubert is in the Valley Feb. 4 for The Complete Chopin Studies, followed a month later on March 4, with Susan de Burgh and Ed LeBaron in The French Connection.

Love in the air, in a show entitled Romeo and Juliet, with Debi Wong and Solmund Nystabakk, on April 8.

Cello Treasures is the title of a presentation by Michael Jones and Chemainus favourite Bruce Vogt on May 6, and, finally, on Sunday, June 3, 2018, the season will wind up with Jo Deslippe in Double Exposure.

Single tickets are $20 at the door and $17 if purchased in advance, but the best way to purchase is to buy a season ticket ($126 before July 31, and $135 after that).

Call 250-748-8383 to reserve season passes and tickets in advance.
